Following a pair of iconic releases the dream was overÖÖ. The invisible controllers of the radio dial began its program of corporate mediocrity, leaving Davidís voice and vision a wreckage of commercial interests. The 1977 recording sessions for the third album Has Anyone Here Seen Sigfried were never finished, Pavlov`s Dog vanished traceless for 13 years.
Curiously, the rumors and legends continued to swirl around. Some said David Surkamp took his own life as a suicide, others he died after helium inhalation, and worse. Still, unbelievably, all the rumors and naughtiness continued to raise Pavlovís Dogís cult.
A pair of Pavlovís Dog releases found their way into the world during the 80ís and 90ís. The long-rumored 1977 lost third recording of unfinished work, Has Anyone Here Seen Siegfried, was bootlegged (and finally regulary released in 2007 by Rockville Music, with added 10 bonustracks), and the regular album Lost In America from 1990. 2001 David Surkamp released his solo album Roaring With Light.
In 2004 the original 1974/75 Pavlovís Dog lineup came together for a 30th anniversary concert. The entire performance was broadcasted by Microsoft, allowing fans around the globe to revel once again in the power and glory of Pavlov's Dog. European tours followed, culminating in a breathtaking performance at the Arrowrock Festival in Holland in front of 54,000 fans.
2007 saw the release of Dancing On The Edge Of A Teacup, David Surkamp's second solo album.
In 2010 ECHO & BOO was released. It is the first Pavlovís Dog album after 20 years. German reputable Rockmagazine ECLIPSED voted ECHO & BOO on rank 13 of 2010ís most important releases, and wrote:
ďA band should start a comback only, if they can perform bigger and more sophisticated as they were when they left the scene. Pavlov's Dog did this terrificly successful.ď
And in 2011 LIVE AND UNLEASHED was released. It is the first livealbum in the bandís 36 years history! The legend is alive!
