Diesel and Dust was produced by Warne Livesey and the band.
It is a concept album about the struggles of Indigenous Australians and environmental causes, issues both near and dear to the band.
It drew inspiration from the Blackfella/Whitefella Tour of remote Indigenous communities with the Warumpi Band and Gondwanaland in 1986. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart for six weeks.
