Big Stick Policy is a four piece rock band based in the Rutgers University college town of New Brunswick, New Jersey. The band was formed in the fall of 1995 by four college seniors with a desire to create driven rock songs. They soon developed a loyal fan base through gigs at local bars and parties with their mix of choice cover songs and hook filled originals.

Singer Sean Sepela, 32 graduated from M.I.T. with a masters degree in computer technology, and despite numerous lucrative job offers, held out for an upper level management position. From computer chips to fish and chips, Sean currently manages the entire deep fryer (upper and lower levels) at the Long John Silver Restaurant where he met guitar player Stan Sedwick. After completing six years at Brigham Young University toward an associates degree, Stan, 32, spent his last senior year studying abroad in Tibet with those Buddhist monks that the Beastie Boys are always whining about. This was about the time he first discovered the joys of opium, and subsequently gave up on all that religious spirituality crap. Two years and several rehab centers later, he got the munchies one night after falling off the wagon and met Sean and bass player Jon Muller, 32, at the above mentioned fine eating establishment. Jon, who after serving five years in the French Foreign Legion in the middle of some hot friggin desert in Africa, was merely looking for some quality seafood when he met the fry boy and the junkie. It was at Jon's current job as a mad scientist at an evil pharmaceutical company that he met Tom Francis, 31, the band drummer. Tom, a piney from the pine barrens whose nickname is Ice, was dropping off some muskrats he had trapped on the mudflats for Jon to artificially inseminate (it was assumed Jon was artificially inseminating them ) . . . *

For the past several years the band has been polishing their live act with frequent gigs at such places as CBGB's in New York City, The Stone Pony and The Saint in Asbury Park, New Jersey, and Upstairs At Nick's in Philadelphia, P.A.

Big Stick Policy released their first E.P. The Trout That Ate Stan in November 1997, and their first full-length album, Wasted Youth in late October, 2000.
