Dieselhed formed in 1989 in Arcata, California and later moved to San Francisco, California, playing a blend of country, punk, and pseudo-classic rock. Drummer Heifetz spread his time between Dieselhed and the genre-bending experimentalists Mr. Bungle. Singer-songwriter Virgil Shaw previously played in Arcata outfit Brents T.V.. Bassist Ellis had been a founding member of the local disbanded funk rock band Psychefunkapus and Jonathan Segel was a former member of local indie-faves Camper Van Beethoven.

The band was active until late 2000.
