Diesel - DJ

Special guest DJ

Ladies and Gentlemen! Today, and all night too, right here in your favourite limegreen and agent orange Dayglo Disco ... none other than our good Two Paddocks friend, the one and only Mark Lizotte -- aka DIESEL! Not just Australia's greatest guitarist but perhaps its greatest living singer too. A Living National Treasure! At last, some class! So, a big hand if you please -- here he is (Mark has sung for us at birthdays, dinners, picnics ...there is no end to his generosity, but today instead he's spinning discs) -- a big hand for the fabulous ...DIESEL!!

What I'm listening to this week -- top 10 (in no particular order):

Top 10 Tunes

  1. Video Games - Lana Del Rey

    Sometimes you hear a song that stops you literally in your tracks.

  2. Champagne & Reefer - Muddy Waters

    Ain't a crime? This song makes everything elicit attractive, the way the verses turn around, an extra bar here, there ... poetry.

  3. Psychotic Girl - The Black Keys

    Great textures from the background vocals .. and a (rocking??) banjo.

  4. Little Wing - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

    How they managed to make this song evoke an orchestral landscape will always amaze me .. it's all in the song ... and ... they only had 8 tracks!

  5. My Alberta - Link Wray and his Ray Men

    Cinematic, this track is like a massage around the shoulders like "albatross."

  6. Valerie - Amy Winehouse

    I love this paired back version. Amy working the melody beautifully.

  7. Harvest Moon - Neil Young

    I'm in love with the idea of rural life... Linda Ronstadt adds some much on this track.

  8. Mystery Train - Little Junior Parker

    Syncopation taken to new levels on this track... sorry Elvis!

  9. I'm New Here - Jamie X X and Gil Scott-Heron

    Two generations of the 5 Burroughs meet on this track, brutal and vulnerable at once.

  10. When The Devil's Loose - A A Bondy

    Makes me think about Savannah and weather that hangs like a water filled flour bag.

Mark, your roots are showing. Cool , so very cool ...
