The Seattle trio outfit of Pop Sickle contained a sound of upbeat pop-punk that reminisced an early on British influence from the Buzzcocks and Squeeze. Founded by ex-Coffin Break member Rob Skinner, the addition of drummer Shawn Trudeau and guitarist Brian Naubert finished the lineup as Skinner himself got on vocal and bass obligations. C/Z Records packed Pop Sickle’s 1st album Beneath the Impact in 1993, that was accompanied by the band’s relocation to Brookfield, MO, in 1994. The follow-up EP 1977 Owner’s Manual premiered through -ismist Information in 1995. But by 1996, Pop Sickle came back to Seattle and quickly split up, with Naubert shifting to Pipe Best and Trudeau becoming a member of the Meices.
