Ken To Tour Australia; Reveals Posies To Re-Issue First 4 Records

Ken Stringfellow was interviewed by Sydney Unleashed ahead of his Australian tour next month, and had news regarding the first 4 Posies records:

For news, we will see over the next year the re-issue of the Posies first four albums with expanded content, quite a bit never before heard and that’s *after* we released a 4-CD box set of outtakes in 2000. We found even *more* stuff. Plus the albums will get remastered, pressed on vinyl, etc.

If you follow Ken’s blog, you already know that he and Jon Auer are recording new Posies songs.

Dates for Ken’s Australian tour:

April 11 – KS solo, Petersham Bowling Club, Sydney AUSTRALIA
April 13 — KS solo, Grace Darling Hotel, Melbourne AUSTRALIA
April 16 — Coronet Blue (KS on keyboards), the Vanguard, Sydney AUSTRALIA
