Trick (stylized as TRICK) is the seventh studio album released by J-Urban singer Koda Kumi. The album continued her #1 streak and stayed on the Oricon charts for twenty-nine weeks. It was released on January 28, 2009 and came in CD and CD+2DVD with the latter being a limited edition and the second DVD containing her LIVE DVD 「KODA KUMI SPECIAL LIVE “Dirty Ballroom” 〜One Night Show〜」. The limited editions of both versions carried the bonus track Venus, originally released by Shocking Blue in 1969.
On the first DVD, there are six secret videos, which could be accessed by clicking on Koda Kumi's left eye on the menu screen. On the second DVD, there is also a secret video accessed by clicking on the clown's nose. A full version for the introduction on the album was later performed during her Live Tour 2009 ~TRICK~.
Two new videos were made for the album: JUST THE WAY YOU ARE and show girl. There was also the "album version" of That Ain't Cool feat. Fergie, which carried more of a story compared to its single-released predecessor.
Since 1987, Diesel has played on several albums by well-known Australian rock singer and brother-in-law, Jimmy Barnes. Although better known as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, Diesel is also competent on bass guitar, drums, percussion and keyboards; and has also produced an album by Richard Clapton and one by Vika and Linda Bull. He has won five ARIA Music Awards with three for 'Best Male Artist' in 1993, 1994 and 1995.
Diesel was born in 1966 in Fall River, Massachusetts, United States, and emigrated to Australia with his family, in November 1971. His father, Henry Bertram Lizotte (born 19 June 1929), and his mother, Theresa Rita (née Morin, born 18 January 1930) were parents of Jeannine, Bruce, Michael, Laura, Donna, Brian and Mark. They settled in Perth, Western Australia, where he later had a job pouring petrol—an experience that provided inspiration for his music. Henry was a professional saxophonist performing in the US and Australia, Diesel and his siblings were surrounded by music from an early age. While his siblings became teachers, Diesel eventually settled on electric guitar as his main instrument. He later recalled a time in Year 8 (c. 1979) at Scarborough Senior High School when he decided on a musical career: "I was trying to get my head around algebra [...] and suddenly I thought: 'Hang on, I don't have to do this. I can play music as a job!'".
In 1994, Nash (as Diesel) won all three titles comprising the WWF Triple Crown, and at that year's Slammy Awards won the MVP (now Superstar of the Year) and (with Shawn Michaels) the Best Tag Team (now Tag Team of the Year) awards.
