Episode 683: The Posies

Hello friends! Ken Stringfellow, co-founder of legendary power pop band, The Posies is my guest for episode 683! This year is The Posies 30th anniversary and they're celebrating with a 6 month North American/European tour and they're dropping deluxe re-releases of their classic 90's albums, Dear 23, Frosting On The Beater and Amazing Disgrace. Go to theposies.net to find out when you can see them and how you can get the albums. Their latest album, Solid States is amazing. You should check it out because these guys are still making incredible albums. Ken and I have a great conversation about how he and Jon Auer got together and started The Posies, making their classic albums and the tours that followed, being a power-pop band from Seattle in the time of grunge, being lampooned by Bevis & Butthead, the difficulty of touring for years, playing with Big Star for 17 years, playing guitar and keyboards for R.E.M., finding his birth parents and making a film about it and much, much more! I had a great time getting to know Ken. I'm sure you will too. let's get down!

Ciao! -JG
