Coming up: Saturday 11th November 2017: Diesel – 30 Year Thang Tour
2017 marks 30 years since Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) literally stepped off the bus after making the Nullarbor crossing from Perth with his band Johnny Diesel And the Injectors, a “hobby” band made up of remnants of an imploded previous band.
Arriving with just $95 between them meant that 9 shows a week ensued for many months. By ’88, after playing everywhere and supporting everyone (including a fortuitous slot with Jimmy Barnes on his Freight Train Heart tour) they were poised to impact with their debut eponymously titled album.
Impact they did, winning ARIA’s for Best New Talent and Highest Selling Album. The very same album went on to become the highest selling Australian debut album of all time.
So, what better way to celebrate than with a night that combines a 25th Anniversary commemoration of Diesel’s breakthrough #1 solo album “Hepfidelity”, with hits from a 30 year career to date.
Hepfidelity – Through The X-ray will see Diesel retracing tracks from the album that established him as a solo artist and musical traveller.
Diesel Rewound is where we get to ‘rewind’ through the hits of a 15-album career, that has produced 35+ singles.
So “get on the bus” and celebrate Diesel’s 30 year thang.
