Diesel - Cross Cut Saw

Diesel - Cross Cut Saw
Over the years this multi ARIA award winner has explored many string instruments, even co-designing the ‘diesel mini’ for Maton Guitars, and through these numerous explorations the inspiration for many of Diesel’s works have emerged.

‘7 Axes’ is Diesel paying homage to the artists who have made him one of Australia’s most loved rock and soul artists of the past two decades. It’s Diesel picking an eclectic range of songs from the musicians that have inspired him and making them his own. Long regarded as one of Australia’s finest guitarists, Diesel has chosen tracks by his favourite players ranging from the psychedelia of Jimi Hendrix to the ragged genius of Neil Young and the subtle expressiveness of Steve Cropper.

Armed with his extensive collection of guitars, Diesel shone a spotlight on the origins of both the songs and the instruments and the role each has played in the making of his own music.

“One night it would be people like Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young and Al Green and the another night I’d do the three Kings – Albert, Freddie and BB” says Diesel. “Liberation heard about it and said, ‘you’ve got to make a record like that’. So we have!”

About this track...

The ‘7 Axes’ EP includes covers from Jimi Hendrix (“Stone Free”), Neil Young (“Cinnamon Girl”) and Albert King (“Cross Cut Saw”). The guitar is front and centre, but the record as a whole is impossible to fit into any one category.
