Fido is a rock band from Victoria, Australia, although they list themselves as Heavy Pop on their Myspace page. Fido formed in 1999 and have toured around Australia.[1] The first recording took place through one microphone in the middle of Pete’s parents lounge room.

Fido were known for their high energy on-stage performances, and have shared the stage with artists such as Antiskeptic, Kiss Chasy, Seraphs Coal and Wishful thinking.

The song Lift Me Up (which first appeared on the EP Open Seven Days) had high rotation on the international hit Christian youth radio show The Reality Zone.[2]

The band have had video clips air on Channel V, Rage[3] and Video Hits, along with national radio airplay for a cover they did of Delta Goodrem's "Lost Without You".

On 10 August Fido announced with "much love" that they were "no more" [4]

The final line up of Fido was David Temby, Jesse Chatelier, Alex DesForges and Daniel Kelaart.

Daniel Kelaart was in the top hundred of Australian Idol in 2006.
