Dirty Queers Don't Come Cheap
This release is available on 7".
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 countless albums under their belt including Pileup, Undressed, and Wish I’d Taken Pictures (a Mint/Lookout co-release), Pansy Division were perhaps one of the most successful and definitely the most visible queer-friendly banner bearers in nascent punk circles. And on Dirty Queers Don't Come Cheap they not so much passed on that torch but rather lit another one, to the then-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, Dirty Queers Don't Come Cheap sees the Skinjobs draw on both the hardcore of Sparkmarker and the pop-punkiness of Pansy Division to create their own brand of queercore.
