Establishing a connection between different generations via an imaginative, interactive show not unlike that of the Flaming Lips, the Sippy Cups play rock music for youngsters and their parents. The California-based group formed in 2004 around the talents of singer Paul Godwin (an early-childhood music teacher who composed scores for stage and film), entertainer Doug Nolan, guitarist Mark Verlander, singer Alison Faith Levy (ex-the Loud Family), bassist Rudy Trubitt, and drummer Jozef Becker (ex-Thin White Rope and the Loud Family). An EP of two singles, produced by Eric Drew Feldman (the Polyphonic Spree, PJ Harvey), was followed by the 2006 album Electric Storyland!, and the Sippy Cups widened their audience in 2007 by playing the kids' stage at Lollapalooza. Embellishing their shows with juggling, unicycling, and puppetry, they continued to attract fans into the following years, and 2009 saw them releasing a sophomore album titled The Time Machine. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
