Diesel Preps 16th Album ‘Bootleg Melancholy’

Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) will release his 16th album ‘Bootleg Melancholy’ in October.

Diesel says the album is about family, mortality, childhood, and dreams.

“The world can be hard and that takes us over in our heads but love and joy are always right there in front of us if we remember to look for them too,” says Mark. “If I’m going to write about my anxieties and fears, I’ll mix it with other parts of me – humour, memories, just small moments – because it’s more welcoming to hear but also a truer picture of who I am. When I get scared, I’m laughing at myself for being scared, you know?”

The first Diesel album as Johnny Diesel and the Injectors was released in March 1989. That first album generated four Top 40 hits ‘Don’t Need Love’, ‘Soul Revival’, ‘Cry In Shame’ and ‘Lookin’ For Love’.

Diesel continued into the 90s with another catalogue of greatest hits to be with ‘Please Send Me Someone to Love’, ‘Love Junk’, ‘Come To Me’, ‘Tip of My Tongue’, ‘Man Alive’, ‘Never Miss Your Water’, ’15 Feet of Snow’ and ‘Dig’.

‘Bootleg Melancholy’ will be his 10th album of the 21st century, 12th if you add in the live albums and 15th if you add the best ofs.

Dave Grohl said he had lost count of the number of times Foo Fighters have toured Australia “10, 20, 100”. The answer is actually 13.

The early tours were mainly club shows. The biggest they got in those first 10 years (outside festivals) was a Festival Hall show in Melbourne. The first arena show was in 2005 and for the past 10 years it has been stadiums.
