Clowndog is a three-piece band that was formed in 1996 in Nelson, and is now situated in Christchurch. They won the regional finals in the SmokeFree Rockquest and have supported a wide range of bands from Bic Runga to Breathe to Salmonella Dub.
Clowndog's first appearance on a recording was with a song called 'Cheese Obsession' on a Nelson compilation called, 'The Hairy Armpit Sessions'. They followed this with their debut album, the 12-song 'Who's Eating The Dead Fish?', which the band released themselves in a cassette-only run.
Clowndog also released a double EP, where one side was their usual brand of grungy punk, and the other were all unplugged songs. This EP was released under the name of 'Soggy/Saggy'.
Clowndog has since moved to Christchurch, where they have firmly established themselves as one of the top bands in the scene, producing noisy punk with a broad streak of humour and a refreshing lack of pretension.
