Jon Auer now plays in two Seattle bands: Lucky Me and Jean Jacket Shotgun.
Kenneth Stringfellow plays in Saltine and released his first solo album,
This Sounds Like Goodbye (Hidden Agenda, 1998), a schizophrenic
collection of instrumental experiments (Trans Potato)
and lo-fi pop (Your Love Won't Be Denied, Too True).
The Posies reformed for two live albums,
In Case You Didn't Feel Like Plugging In (Casa) and
Alive Before The Iceberg (Houston), while two anthologies hit the market:
the four-CD boxed set At Least At Last (Not Lame) and the one-CD
Dream All Day (Universal).
The first new material after the reunion (particularly,
(Matinee and No COnsolation)
was published in the EP
Nice Cheekbones And A Ph D (Houston Party, 2001).
In the meantime, John Auer released a collection of covers,
6 1/2 (Pattern, 2001).
After singing with the Orange Humble Band,
Kenneth Stringfellow released his solo album Touched (Poptones, 2001),
a collection of pop tunes embellished with sophisticated arrangements
(Uniforms, This One's On You).
The two reunited for the EP Private Sides (Arena Rock, 2003), which
offers three acoustic songs by each (notably the catchy
When the Lights Go Up and Beautiful).
Soft Commands (Yep Roc, 2004) finds him in an unusually pensive
and adult mood, and it is his most sophisticated solo album yet.
Every Kind Of Light (Rykodisc, 2005)
was Ken Stringfellow's and Jon Auer's first album
as the Posies in seven years.
Unfortunately, it sounds like they saved their best material for other projects,
and used left-overs for the Posies.
The Posies' Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow helped Alex Chilton on the
dreadful Big Star reunion album,
In Space (Rykodisc, 2005).
Songs from the Year of Our Demise (2006) was Jon Auer's first solo album,
a collection of 15 senile elegies. The centerpiece is the seven-minute
You Used to Drive Me Around, an old song that originally appeared on
the EP The Perfect Size (2000).
Stringfellow formed the Disciplines and delivered a hard-rock version of
the Posies' power-pop on
Smoking Kills (2009) and
Virgins Of Menace (Spark & Shine, 2011).
The Posies continued to embarrass themselves with albums such as
Blood/ Candy (Rykodisc, 2010).
