Dieselhed - Tales of a Brown Dragon (1995) & Shallow Water Blackout (1997) (By Request)

Another re-up from the old blog. Dieselhed were a San Franciscan supergroup on Amarillo Records, featuring members of Brent's TV, Mr. Bungle, Camper Van Beethoven and the backing band for Neil Hamburger's country record. For fans of Up on the Sun-era Meat Puppets.

Tales of a Brown Dragon (1995)

Their best. Eleven fully-developed and catchy songs, not a stinker in the bunch.

Shallow Water Blackout (1997)

Not quite as solid as TOAB, but still a very enjoyable records. It's a lot less country, which is weird, as it was actually produced by Dwight Yoakam's engineer.


  1. thank you!!!!!


  2. Dieselhed is truly one of the best bands I've ever seen or heard. The first self-titled album is excellent too. As is Shallow Water Blackout their 4th LP. I still haven't heard Chico and The Flute which was their 5th and final album but I'm looking for it.

  3. Great bands indeed, some good oldies are just what I need to hear right now.

  4. These must be the greatest album I have listened during my entire life. There are not words to describe the quantity of feelings you can find while you are listening to it.

  5. Wow finally I find it!!!
    Thank you very much!!
