Blind Dog formed when Tobias Nilsson and Joakim Thell needed a drummer for a party gig. Thomas Elenvik was called in to do one gig but the band stuck together since they discovered that everything worked so well.
Blind Dog recorded a demo in 1996, which was discovered by RoadRunner and rendered them a place on the compilation album "Burn one up" in 1997. Getting tired of waiting for a record deal the band released their debut album in 1999 - "The Last Adventures of Captain Dog". This album was picked up by MeteorCity and re-released by them the year after.
