Typically we have bands come out to the Electraplay studio to record sessions for Donewaiting but when The Posies rolled through Columbus this past winter, there wasn’t enough time to get the veteran power-pop band out to Hilliard before their show at Outland on Liberty. So, if they couldn’t make it out to us, we figured we’d come to them for an intimate, acoustic session in the front lounge at the venue.
We attempted to broadcast live via UStream that evening with less-than-successful results and our time was pretty limited – doors were scheduled to open about 15 minutes after the start of the performance and interview. But, we still were able to get Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow and Matt Harris to play 2 tracks off their 2010 release, Blood/Candy (in my humble opinion, their best release since 1996’s Amazing Disgrace).
If you’re a Posies fan, make sure to check out the 3-CD tribute put out by Burning Sky Records, which we talk about briefly in the interview.
