Album Notes
The roots of the Diesel Street Kings began back in 1999 on a hot summer night in New Jersey. Dave and Doug were fresh out of college, frustrated by trying to find a voice in a faltering culture and business of music. They had spent the past few years working in recording studios and music publishers, gaining credibility, but only for the pathetic excuses for sounds that would drift out over their radio dials and lull the masses into complacency.

"Rock is dead" one of them said, sipped a beer and shook his head, and despite all they knew, they knew that it wouldn't be easy to fix. Not even a damn tasty philly cheesesteak sandwich could fix what was wrong, at least not from where they were sitting.

They thought for a minute as that patch of grass grew smaller and agreed, "...if we know it's dead, we must know how to bring it back to life."

And that's when it all began...

2000 saw an ep from the band - 4 songs written and recorded by the pair and the band, and it gained some small exposure for their music on compilation CDs and through the web.

Then at some point, over the next 4 years, Dave's place began its metamorphosis into a poorly disguised recording studio. By then, with the songs, the talent, the equipment and the ability, they asked, "Why not record an album's worth of stuff?" Fine question, one that nobody could answer.

Sometimes we find people that make us feel good - the Diesel Street Kings play music that can makes you smile, dance, cry, tap your foot, sing along, or fall in love - sometimes within the course of one song. Meet your new favorite band...

Calling T-Bone Burnett!
I must confess that I am not particularly a fan of this sort of music but I was most impressed with the "guts" and bolts of this dynamic band. Solid musicianship and a majority of fairly strong tunes make for a great full -length debut. What makes it great is that this relatively young band makes the best of their knowledge of American music history. Shades of Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, John Hammond, The Carter Family, Bob Dylan, Chuck Prophet and the like make for an NPR wet dream. I am also happy to see that the 4 song EP from a few years back found it's way to this collection. It makes it seem that this band is clearing out the inventory and finding it's legs by gambling on various styles of Americana folk rock, foot stomp and good time R & R. It's not neccesarily a good thing though as some of these tracks feel as if they were written on the spot by cobbling some of the most tried and true avenues of musical expression. Cliche? Maybe. But if it weren't for the charming lyrics and the deeply emotive and sexy vocals of Dave Fisher it could be far worse. As it stands though, this disc is just filled with some real gems. Particular standouts are ; "Yoke", "NJ Planet", "Andi's Leaving", "Honest And True", "Something Wrong With Me", and "Out Of Blue Sky" (my current fave).Clearly, this band is just waiting to unleash it's full potential. A summer classic.

Good music
"My Dirty Mind" is a great tune. "Honest and True" is a very radio-friendly tune that should have been a radio hit a few years back. There are great musicians on here and the arrangements are very good - but search out their newest CD "Transmission" if you can - that whole album is great - not a bad track on it and some extremely fine work.
