1 - PANSY DIVISION - BLAME THE BIBLE - (7") 
ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES


Hot off their upcoming album, Quite Contrary, comes a new Pansy Division 7-inch single, Blame the Bible! The band celebrates their 25th year with a perfectly timed election year stomper. Angry and funny, it delivers a strong message about religious hypocrisy and right-wing blind hatred, guaranteed to resonate no matter which genders sign is on the bathroom door! The B-side, "Neighbors of the Beast," is an exclusive non-album track which suggests that the devil might actually be a better neighbor than a right-wing Christian. Unless, of course, he doesnt exist and is just a concept made up by people who have no fun and dont want others to..

2 - PANSY DIVISION - LIFE IN A GAY ROCK BAND - (DVD) 
ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES


Undeniably one of the most gay music acts in the last twenty years, Pansy Division pioneered queercore before others had the confidence to come out of the closet-and they did it all without major record label support or mainstream radio airplay. This humorous and fast-paced yet intimate portrait of the band features newly shot footage and archival footage spanning 15 years. From their first days in San Franciscos underground music scene to a full-fledged stadium tour with Green Day and beyond, founding members Jon Ginoli and Chris Freeman overcameprejudice, near-poverty, and increasingly difficult line-upchanges to keep the band together. The film also examines issues that confronted the gay community in the 1990s, as well as the adversity one encounters simply by being oneself. Pansy Division: Life in a Gay Rock Band features interviews and appearances by Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), Jello Biafra, Lookout! Records founder Larry Livermore, and Jessie "Luscious" Townley (Blatz, The Criminals, Alternative Tentacles). This documentary provides an essential history of an alternative to the 1990s alternative music. The release comes with a bonus DVD of more than two hours of live footage spanning the history of the band.

3 - PANSY DIVISION - QUITE CONTRARY - (LP) 
ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES


Alternative Tentacles Records celebrates Pansy Divisions 25th anniversary with Quite Contrary, an unforgettable collection of hook- filled sing-a-longs. This latest album continues to mix clever lyrics with catchy melodies while giving a sober look at themselves and where they are now. Starting back in 1991 in San Francisco, singer/guitarist Jon Ginoli and bassist/vocalist Chris Freeman shared the experience of not only being outsiders for being gay, but also for being gay punk rockers. By turning their alienation into music that defied the stereotype that gay men preferred pop divas and show tunes, Pansy Division would go on to become beloved underground music legends. Also featuring guitarist/vocalist Joel Reader (The Mr. T Experience, The Plus Ones, The Avengers) and drummer Luis Illades (The Plus Ones, The Avengers), Quite Contrary is the perfect follow up to 2009s Thats So Gay. Tackling topics such as New Years reflections, phone addiction, aging barflies, dating apps, and flaky guys (an evergreen Pansy Division theme), this latest release provides a glimpse at the struggles of modern life both with Pansy Divisions trademark grin and a sense of determination. Quite Contrary sums up everything great about an astonishing 25-year career, including reuniting the original cover models of the classic 1996 album Wish Id Taken Pictures, showing them 20 years later - quite contrary to the forever young imagery of mainstream gay iconography- a fantastic look into the social and personal frustrations we all face today. Pansy Division evolves with the times, gaining new depth while staying true to the sound that made them so special since day one..

5 - PANSY DIVISION - THAT'S SO GAY - (CD) 
ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES


Their first new album in six years. Featuring a newish lineupbolstered by former Mr. T Experience bassist (and token hetero) Joel Reader on lead guitar, theyve given their Undertones/Buzzcocks-inspired pop punk / power pop a few fresh twists. While so many bands choose monotony over variety, Thats So Gay is an all-you-can-eat rock buffet: take your pick from garage to punk, power pop to glam, and of course, balls-out rock. The humor and in-your-face queer content that put Pansy Division on the radar are in abundance, but songs about relationships, Bible-thumpers, and closeted politicians cruising airport bathrooms round out the album. TRACKLISTING:1. Twinkie Twinkie Little Star 2. Average Men (feat. Jello Biafra) 3. Ride Baby 4. Some of My Best Friends 5. Thats So Gay 6. Obsessed with Me 7. 20 Years of Cock 8. Whats in It for Me? 9. Youll See Them Again 10. Dirty Young Man 11. Its Just a Job 12. Pat Me on the Ass 13. Never You Mind 14. Life Lovers
