The Posies were my introduction to power pop. They added slightly psychedelic effects and chugging guitars (that sounded a bit like Urge Overkill) but overall their sound was defined by the search for the perfect hook filled song. 1993′s Frosting On the Beater was their “piece de resistance” and they never really strayed from that sound. Members of The Posies now have solo records, production credits and appear in bands like REM and Big Star.
