Diesel is reminding his fans about why they first got into his music with a setlist revolving around his first two albums at Red Hot Summer.
This year marks 30 years since the release of the debut as Johnny Diesel & The Injectors. That first album came out on 6 March, 1989. Diesel is performing three of the hits from the record ‘Don’t Need Love’, ‘Lookin’ for Love’ and a very extended ‘Cry In Shame’.
The second album ‘Hepfidelity’ came three years later, almost to the day. ‘Hepfidelty’ landed on 2 March, 1992. He played ‘Man Alive’, ‘Come To Me’ and Tip of my Tongue’ at Red Hot Summer, Ballarat.
2018 was a big year for Mark Lizotte. Marking his 30th anniversary he released the ‘30: The Greatest Hits’ album and performed the new song from that ‘Give Me Saturday Night’.
