The Posies

The Posies are an American power pop group. The band was formed in 1987 in Bellingham, Washington by primary songwriters Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow. They are best known for their radio hits “Golden Blunders” (from Dear 23), as well as “Dream All Day”, “Solar Sister” and “Flavor of the Month” (from Frosting on the Beater). The band is currently signed to Rykodisc. Several major labels noticed the band early on and in late 1989 they signed to new Geffen Records imprint DGC Records. They chose John Leckie to produce their first album for the label and Dear 23 was released in August 1990. “Golden Blunders” reached No. 17 on the US Modern Rock charts. Ringo Starr covered the song for his 1992 album Time Takes Time.

Dave Fox joined to play bass for the last of the “Hit Sessions” and the name then changed to Frosting On The Beater and was released in April 1993. Leadoff track “Dream All Day” enjoyed some success on U.S. MTV and alternative radio, becoming their biggest hit (#4 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart), leading the band to an extensive tour of the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
