Some 25 years ago in Perth, singer-guitarist Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) finalised the line-up for his band at that time, Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. Within a matter of months they were on their way across the Nullarbor, blitzing it live and heading for a national top 3 album chart debut. In those intervening years since leaving Perth, he has sold in excess of 800,000 records and become a household name, simply as 'Diesel'.
And now to celebrate his alter ego's silver jubilee, Diesel has cut 15 tracks for his brand new album 'Under The Influence' - an album dedicated to his musical heroes 'Under The Influence' presents some familiar songs in ways you've never heard before and similarly it's Diesel in as good a form as you've ever heard him!
Diesel showcased some of the songs from 'Under The Influence' on the recent Joe Cocker/George Thorogood tour where he earned rave reviews. To celebrate his 25th Anniversary in music and the release of his new album, Diesel will undertake a full national tour from late July to blow out the candles on the cake and blow the roof off pubs and clubs right across the country.
