The band's 2004 album, That Song, was produced by Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai), with the title track arranged by bassist Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto. The album also featured guest appearances by Yumiko Ohno of Buffalo Daughter and Sean Lennon. It featured three singles that went to No 1 in Thailand.

  • History

    As a college band, Modern Dog won the Coke Music Contest in 1992. It was signed to indie label Bakery Music and was teamed with producer "Suki" Kamol Sukosol Clapp. The first album, Moderndog, was released in 1994. A local station, Fat Radio, which had then just switched to an all-indie format, continuously played the album's first single, Busaba (บุษบา), for 24 hours straight. Another song from the album, ...Before (Thai name '...ก่อน' and written by Pathomporn Pathomporn aka. Pry), is featured prominently in the soundtrack to the 2004 Thai film, Citizen Dog.

    Because of its electronic experimentation, Modern Dog has been favorably compared to Radiohead, and it actually served as the opening act for the British band in 1994 at a concert in MBK Center in Bangkok.

    The band took a four-year break after its second album in 1997, Cafe, with founding bass player, Somath "Bob" Bunyaratanavech, leaving the band, and Pod taking time off to do some business abroad. Dispelling fears that the band had broken up, Modern Dog was back in the studio in 2001 to record its third album, Love Me Love My Life. The band then embarked on a national tour, with Bob temporarily rejoining on bass. Since then, the bass-player slot in the band has been filled by a rotating roster of players.

    Modern Dog has since been hailed as the leader of Thailand's indie and rock music scene, paving the way for such bands as Loso, Big Ass, Bodyslam and Silly Fools. After more than 10 years with Bakery Music (which was sold to Sony BMG Music Entertainment in 2001), Modern Dog has left the label and plans to release albums on its own label.

    Along with its appearances in the United States in 2006, Modern Dog performed on July 28–30 in the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts production of a rock opera adaptation of the Ramakien national epic, along with Sek Loso and other Thai artists.

    In October 2006, in appearances at music festivals in Bangkok, the band unveiled new songs for a forthcoming album. Their fifth album, Ting Nong Noy was released in September 2008 under its own label Moderndog Co., Ltd.
