Before "Dr. Bombay"

Jonny Jakobsen began his career as a faux-country/pop singer called Johnny Moonshine. As Johnny Moonshine, Jakobsen released one album titled "Johnny Moonshine & The Troubled Water Band" (1995).

Below is a description of the Moonshine Project from "":

"Johnny, born and raised in the southern part of Sweden. He's been working as a troubadour for many years and been in several bands, and during that time he wrote hundreds of songs. Johnny's music is country-rock with a melody that sticks to your mind. The lyrics are very personal and easy to sing along with. RoastingHouse decided to record an album with Johnny and the Troubled Water Band, and the final mix was completed in July 1995. This debut album is available for licensing / sub-publishing all over the world except Scandinavia."

Due to the failure of Johnny Moonshine, Jakobsen moved on in search of a newer, more 'annoying' sound. He chose the style of eurodance, which was just becoming popular in the late 1990s, and began his career as the fake Indian "Dr. Bombay". Jakobsen teamed up with Robert Uhlmann, who is famous for his work with

Dr. Bombay

Jakobsen's earliest career success was prompted by the introduction of the Dr. Bombay character in 1998. In his lyrics, the character is portrayed as an Indian taxi driver, mystic, sitar player, chef, snake charmer and avid fan of elephant racing. He appears clad in traditional Indian garb, such as a kurta and pagri, with the addition of dark glasses that are also worn by the other characters portrayed by Jakobsen.
