Anything But Joey

Pop-punk band from Kansas City. The band formed in the summer of 1995 under the name M.I.P. After playing their first show, they changed their name to Thulium. In December 1996, Thulium recorded and released a four-song demo called The Blue Tape. During this period, they added second guitarist Steve Nick and made two more recordings. A self-titled album in 1997 (sometimes called the "white album") and an EP called Mars Needs Pimps Too the next year. With producer J. Hall, Thulium recorded their second album, The Secret Club, in two weeks. In April 2001, Steve parted ways with the band, citing creative differences. Thulium would continue touring heavily, taking short breaks to record a few songs here and there.

In 2002, the band decided to change its name from Thulium to Anything But Joey (ABJ) and released a new album, Come Out Fighting, in December. They released another 4 song EP, Necessary, But Not Cool, in late 2004. After this, Jeff left the band and was replaced by former Walls of Jericho drummer Wes Keely. In January 2005, the band announced that they were breaking up. Matt, Bryan, and Wes formed a harder styled emo/goth band called The Famed. Drew reunited with former guitarist Steve Nick to form another pop-rock band called Stuck On Broadway. Jeff later joined Stuck On Broadway after their original drummer quit.
