Ben and John begin their discussion of Blind Dog's debut album, The Last Adventures of Captain Dog. Originally self-released in 1999, the album would see a number of pressings in subsequent years on the Meteor City and People Like You labels...
Though the band hailed from Sweden, they played a version of stoner rock not out of place alongside american bands such as Kyuss, COC, Monster Magnet, and Down. The band's take on US heavy ultiamtely showcased a more song-forward sensibility and musicianship that often outclassed their peers, easily avoiding stereotypes of lazy stoner musicians.
Part 2 of Ben and John's discussion will be available March 8, 2022 at https://greatestthingpodcast.com and on all major platforms.
