9th Jan News:

David Campbell also mentioned an album due out on iTunes very soon (this week some time).... to benefit all flood victims in Queensland. Jimmy Barnes, David Campbell & Diesel (as well as other Artists) will be donating all of the money raised from this album to the flood benefit, so guys, if you can download the album to support this cause, it would be graciously appreciated.

And as a Queenslander, born & raised, I personally would like to thank each & every Artist & extras involved in the production of this benefit album. I just love the Aussie Spirit. We are the greatest people in the World to be around when times are tough.

Saturday Suffering Fools is out now.

For diesel, the blues are never far away. From his classic hit Come to Me to last year's Days Like These to his blues based 1996 collaboration with Chris Wilson, Short Cool Ones, he's always infused the spirit and the sound of the blues into his music. But they've never been as blues-to the-wall as they are on Project Blues: Saturday Suffering Fools, a loose-limbed, fired-up trawl through the music that inspired one of Australia's rock legends. "The album is like an encyclopaedia of what blues is to me," diesel says.
Rather than continuing down the same road as Short CoolOnes, the new album takes a sharp left turn. "Having done the harmonica and guitar thing, I thought about the whole thing with horns," diesel recalls. He enlisted former 'Injector' Bernie Bremond, plus his father Hank and brothers Mike &Brian Lizotte on horns, and with drummer Lee Moloney and bassist Richie Vez anchoring proceedings, Diesel's Project Blues was go. Choosing the songs wasn't hard - these are tracks Diesel has lived and loved for years, mixed with five off-the cuff originals inspired by the vibe of the covers he was picking. Then it was just a case of throwing the boys in the studio and letting rip.

Buy the CD now at JB Hi-Fi

Diesels new album, "Days Like These" OUT NOW. The album is also available on Vinyl with six additional tracks not on the CD

Info: To any fan, the mood of the album will remind them of his first solo record; a bluesman straddling the line between funky of-the-moment sounds and raw melodic traditions, a definitive electric album, still always eclectic.

    I know it's pretty crap the stock some of the music stores have. You can order it from Sanity or JB, but I've seen it in Target believe it or not. Or was it K-Mart, anyway it was one of those and I was a little surprised as they don't usually stock good music, just Top 20 !!! But try JB, they seem to stock the most. Good luck. Make sure you order/buy the one with the bonus CD as it's awesome.

    Why can't I find the Diesel and Strings DVD anywhere? This annoys me. I know I could order it online, but where's the fun in that?
