Profile Fiction Dog (borrowed from a poem by Jim Morrison) started when drummer Chris White and guitarist Warren Tews met at a party in the fall of 1989 in a small city out of Wisconsin. Original music was, from the start, a priority for the band, even though the area wasn’t too keen on anything but cover songs. In 1993, they jumped into the studio again and recorded fido, a full-length CD, hoping it would propel them into stardom, at least in Wausau. Within a few weeks of its release, it hit #1 at Inner Sleeve, the local independent record shop, and all was well.

Over the next few years they supported fido by gigging all over Wisconsin, tentatively venturing into Minnesota and Illinois. They once opened for 80’s hair band Slaughter on their Oh-Crap-We’re-Broke-But-Maybe-Someone-Will-Show-Up Tour, and got a slot at the annual MetalFest in Milwaukee. Things began to unravel in 1996 with the collapse of a record deal with Curb Records and the firing of their manager, Shaun Barusch. This disillusionment with the recording industry eventually led to the last “official” gig in September of 1996 in Manitowoc WI, at a bar ironically called the Dog House.
