Alternative Tentacles Records celebrates Pansy Divisions 25th anniversary with Quite Contrary an unforgettable collection of hook-filled sing-a-longs. This 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 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.
