Sleazy glam rock, with raunchy, tongue in groove lyrics, and a good time attitude is what “Bat An Eyelash” by Chip Dimonick is all about. The songs scream 1986 in a good way as they are quite memorable with a listen or two. “If You See Kay” is not an April Wine cover, rather a love song of sorts. The very catchy “My Last Buck” tells the tale of going broke from spending in all in a strip bar. “I Own You” has more of a dark glam approach to it sounding along the lines of D’Molls.
There are many play on words lyrics and song titles throughout the disc. While “PMS Is A Sh!tty Excuse” sounds more like a Mentors title, the song is a rather humorous analogy of the male plight. And yes, a song about PMS can be catchy without the obvious connotations!
”If You Were Me” changes the pace with the use of an acoustic guitar and vocals along the lines of Pretty Boy Floyd meets the Stephen Shareaux of Kik Tracee. The pop punk rock of “U F*ck Me Up” is a 2 ½ minute blast of simplistic addictive pleasure. “Can I Watch?” has somewhat of an early Ratt vibe to it in terms of structure.
If you enjoy glam bands such as Pretty Boy Floyd and D’Molls and some of the more underground early 90’s bands such as Alleycat Scratch and Slingshot Kitty, Chip Dimonick will be a welcome add to your collection.
