He then went solo - the dawn of the platinum-selling, ARIA-winning solo era. Hepfidelity was followed by The Lobbyist and Solid State Rhyme. A blues album with Chris Wilson in 1996, Short Cool Ones, signalled changing times ahead. Then came the Mark Lizotte interlude - "The six years I spent in New York, in which...I only made one album," Diesel laughs. "Gee, that sounds bad when I say it that way!"
On his return to Australia, Lizotte became Diesel again, and entered a solo acoustic phase. He was one of the first to issue a Liberation Blue album, taking a different look at golden moments from his back catalogue on the 2004 live recording Singled Out. Touring - "more than I ever expected" - off the back of the album, Diesel was reborn.
And so a new age dawned in soulful fashion with 2006's Coathanger Antennae. Now comes the official eighth album ...Days Like These. "It's a new spin on old ground," says Diesel. "A lot of people will probably say when they hear this record 'Oh good, he's rocking again!‘Days Like These’ re-kindles Diesel’s passion for the electric guitar, evoking the style and mood of his ground-breaking debut.
