This is a solo performance
Australian hit machine Diesel has expanded his Sunset Suburbia Tour, showcasing new songs from the Sunset Suburbia album along with playing all his classic hits spanning a multi-platinum career.
Sunset Suburbia Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 follows last year’s Top 20 retrospective Diesel 30: a double-CD which featured 14 Top 40 hits, including Tip Of My Tongue, Come To Me and Soul Revival. An album featuring yet more new songs is out August 28th.
Diesel says: “Suburbia has always held a strange fascination for me. I remember designer cul de sacs strewn with shotgun shells in Chandler Arizona; little vignettes of skateboarding around closed service stations on weekends in Perth; some guy in the hot tub in his backyard where I’m riding my bike over the rail overpass in Sydney. I love going into where people live — the sights, the smells, the little repetitive things that make their world. It’s kind of a bittersweet thing but it’s the stuff of life and it has a way of making songs.”
And after more than 30 years of recording, Mark Lizotte – aka Diesel – has found a more direct route from inspiration to revelation. He adds: “I’ve really enjoyed doing it this way as it elongates the recording process, allowing for each EP to take on a uniqueness. I’ve always been a bit bummed when getting to the end of making a record and this in a way delays gratification, making 2 ‘mini albums’ on the way to an LP”.
