Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Formed in San Francisco in 1991, Pansy Division may not actually have been "the first openly gay pop-punk band," as the cover of this book declares, but they certainly were the first to emerge out of the burgeoning "queercore" scene (itself emerging out of an anarchist milieu) and garner substantial national attention and success, particularly following the release of their second album, Deflowered, in 1994. In this memoir, the band's founder and guitarist, Jon Ginoli, takes fans behind the scenes and describes the band's early years and many adventures on the road and in the studio. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"We're the buttfuckers of rock-and-roll, We want to sock it to your hole!" With these words written in a notebook, Jon Ginoli sets off on a journey of self-discovery and musical passion to become the founding member of Pansy Division, the first out and proud queercore punk rock band to hit the semi-big time. Set against the changing decades of music, we follow the band from their inception in San Francisco, to their search for a music label and a permanent drummer to their current status as indie rock icons. We see the highs—touring with Green Day—and the lows—homophobic fans—of striving for acceptance and success in the world of rock. Replete with the requisite tales of sex, drugs, groupies, band fights and label battles, this rollicking memoir is also an impassioned account of staying true to the artistic vision of queer rock'n'roll.
