Diesel is doing gigs at the Bridge Hotel, Balmain Oct 4 and 5.  The R&B
album he did with harpist Chris Wilson in 1996 is magnificent.

2 bands. (but Diesel and Sneak would be a cool name for a band though)

Diesel is actually an American born singer/guitarist (real name Mark
Lizzotte), whose been around the Oz music scene for over a decade. Used to
play guitar in Jimmy Barnes' band. Then had a band called Johnny Diesel &
The Injectors. Then went solo as Johnny Diesel, then changed his name to
just Diesel, then to Mark Lizzotte, now back to Diesel. Think he has an
identity crisis. Anyhow, he's a fairly decent performer in his own right.

As for Sneak, i think they're a young rock band just starting out in the
r'n'r biz.
