Cherry Divine

cherry divineCherry Divine – Rockabilly Chicks vs. Mean Evil Women

Catty Town
Queen of Rockabilly – Crazy – Mean Evil Woman – Don’t Ya – Vintage Pin up Girl – Baby Plays Bass – Ain’t No Fool – Juniors in Love – I Need a Man – Rockabilly Dancers – Special – Fakin It – Brand New Tattoo – Rockabilly Chick

When a female singer introduces herself as the “Australian Imelda may” I don’t expect much of her album. When that same person, still in her liner notes, has the pretention of “bringing back original female Rockabilly roots music to Australia and to the World” she has to be good. And I’m sorry to say that this is something that Cherry Divine is clearly not. Not only her songs are far from being originals (is that still possible to write songs like Rockabilly Queen, Vintage Pin-Up girl or Rockabilly Chick today?) but her voice is full of cliches and mannerism. This is obviously someone who’s trying to jump on a trend despite the presence of a musician like Peter Baylor who played on far better albums.
