Diesel In The Dust
by UFO

Album: Making Contact (1983)
  • "Diesel In The Dust" was co-written by lead vocalist Phil Mogg and keyboard player/guitarist Neil Carter. Running to 4 minutes 29 seconds, this is another example of quick on the draw in Texas, the other being "Shoot Shoot" from the Force It album.
  • Commenting on the song to this website in March 2011, Neil Carter said it was "…set in America's deep south it's about rednecks taking the law into their own hands and rough justice. The guy is shot, slumped at the wheel of his truck and all that's left is the smell of fuel in the Texas (or somewhere) dust." >>
