More Lovin' From Our Oven
CD - $6.00 (
PANSY DIVISION's fifth album collects several years of singles, compilation tracks, unreleased versions of other songs and rare demos, puts them all together in a nice pie-flavored package, and bakes them till it's just right. 21 songs, all previously unavailable on CD. Direct from the band's personal stock!
"More Lovin' From Our Oven, the second compilation of singles and rarities from homocore punks Pansy Division, proves once again that their non-album efforts are just as vital and exciting as their full-lengths. This collection features more alternative versions of album songs than the first compilation, ("Pile Up"), but the Pansies make it worthwhile by choosing unique renditions -- "Fem in a Black Leather Jacket" and "The Story So Far" are pulled from frontman Jon Ginoli's pre-Pansy cassette demo, while "The Summer You Let Your Hair Grow Out" and "Negative Queen" are creatively reworked without the predictable jangle of Ginoli's electric guitar. There's no shortage of eclectic cover tunes this time around, as the band tinkers with songs by '70s anthem rockers Kiss ("Sweet Pain") and Judas Priest ("Breaking the Law"), as well as indie rock girl trio Maow and new wave singer Josie Cotton. As with Pile Up, the collection is impressively cohesive as Pansy Division toys with a larger variety of styles and tempos, maintaining a firm grip on the endearing and energetic pop-rock-punk sound that has always set the band apart from its Lookout counterparts."- All Music Guide
