Poshdog is based in Gothenburg and was formed in January
1999 when Linus Pilebo joined Patrik Adiels. What catched
Patriks attention, was Linus strong and characteristic voice.
Although Linus, at this time, sang in a "grunge" band, his talent
and potential for a wider range of styles, was obvious. In the
misty morning of Poshdog?s creation, Patrik had already
written eight songs and these songs were the object of the
bands rehearsals. Three songs: ?til morning, 10 o clock
peepshow and Pictures in my head, on Poshdogs first demo,
was recorded in Poshdog?s studio, with Linus vocals recorded in
the living room. After a hot and creative summer the band played
various unplugged gigs to get feedback on new songs.
The first demo recieved great reviews and "til morning" was played
in the national radio (P3 Demo). By August poshdog?s second
demo was born into the world of Pop. The song "Always be
waiting" was written by Patrik with Linus responsible for the
lyrics, this song and the other two: "LaLa land" and "Home we
say", recieved (in september) the recognition: "Demo of the
month" by G?teborgs-Posten - a daily newspaper in Sweden.
Pelle Gustafsson, who hosted P3 Demo, made an interview with
Patrik after playing "Always be waiting" in the program.
Poshdog has written new songs since its formation and the third
demo, contains five unplugged songs and provides the listener
with a more "naked" approach, and the record companys with
songs. Recently the new drummer - Anders Carlsson and bassplayer
- Per Pilebo joined up with the band, providing a real rythm-injection!
In february 2000, the song "?Til morning"
from poshdog?s first demo won the
contest "Song of the Month" organized
and sponsored by the magazine -
"Musikermagasinet". Lead singer, Linus,
received some wellearned recognition
when he was awarded "Singer of the
year" by the same magazine. The award
was presented at Hultsfreds -
festivalen 2000 by the editor.
We are currently finalizing the song - "Sister" and
you?re able to listen to three new songs -"Fastfood & Headaches",
"Bittersweet" and the live recording of "Walk With Me" on the
One important aspect of being a band is performing the songs live.
Uptil now we?ve played various clubs & gigs - Patricia Night Live
(Stockholm), Oceanen, RioRio, N?Bar (Gothenburg) and Liseberg Live.
Hopefully in the end of spring/summer 2002 we?re off on a
smaller "tour" in Stockholm.
