DiMonick, Chip: The Sign of a New Generation (EP)

Hard Rock
3.5/5.0

Pittsburgh rocker Chip DiMonick with his band return with their fourth album, The Sign of a New Generation, and EP of five tunes. Once again DiMonick and company tap their familiar brew of sleaze hard rock and a bit of punk for some fundamental party rock.

Chip DiMonick:: very scary.

You get that from the start with the 'Hey everybody let's rock,' anthem Pump. The rest of this short album is straight out of Sunset Strip, or in their case Moon Township, sleaze cock rock. Expect more toe-tapping and fist-pumping rock with DiMonick's naughty, suggestive, and sometimes clever lyrics on Too Young for Tattoos, She Won't Let Me Play (sounds like Poison), and the humorous When the Drunkest Girls Wear the Shortest Skirts. Regarding the title track, there's something very familiar about the chord pattern and melody early on. It's definitely lifted from another song, but I haven't been able to put my finger on the song or artist.

Essentially, The Sign of a New Generation is consistent Chip DiMonick, sticking to his familiar style of hard rock from the sleaze side of the street. The likely disappointment for fans will be that the album is too short.
