Pansy Division, one of the first openly gay punk bands in history, commemorates their fifteenth year together with this great collection of their tunes, music videos, and live videos!
The boys have picked out thirty songs- from classics like “Femme in a Black Leather Jacket” and “Homo Christmas” to their newer hits like “No Protection”- culled from their six outof-print Lookout! Records releases as well as their 2003 Alternative Tentacles release Total Entertainment. The included DVD with music videos, TV appearances and live clips (including some from their 1994 opening stint for Green Day), adds to the essentialness of this release!
Pansy Division formed in 1991 as a San Francisco-based, fully outof-the-closet punk band. Their catchy pop hooks and smart, outré lyrics found an enthusiastic audience- both queer and straight- all over the world. It probably isn’t too much to say PD’s outness and their humorously frank yet sensitive tackling of social and personal issues changed the world a little bit. They play gay pride events constantly, as well as play in other bands like Dirty Power, The Plus Ones, and The Avengers (yes, that Avengers!). This cd/dvd is a tidy summation of PD’s groundbreaking career thus far, perfect for the uninitiated or the consummate fan who wants all the hits on one convenient disc.
