Dirty Queers Don't Come Cheap
Two songs each from the pride of San Francisco, and the pride of Vancouver, BC! Pansy Division are American pop-punk legends, having been around since before the Green Day-on-Lookout years. With seven albums under their belts including Pileup, Undressed, and Wish I’d Taken Pictures (which was a Mint/Lookout co-release), Pansy Division have been perhaps the most successful and most visible queer-friendly banner bearers in punk rock circles. And now they are, to some degree, not so much passing on that torch but rather lighting another one, to a rising Canadian band, the Skinjobs.
With Kim Kinakin from famed Vancouver hardcore band Sparkmarker on guitar and lead vocals, and ex-Queasy member Laura on drums, and Mimi on bass, the Skinjobs draw on both the hardcore of Sparkmarker and the pop-punkiness of Pansy Division to create their own brand of queercore, as shown by the Skinjobs’ debut album on Bongo Beat/Agitpop/Spitshine
