Details

“The Celtic/folk punk act are full of energy. In true punk sensibility, it’s a set full of anger, rage, fury and takes aim at the ills of society. There’s acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and more all tied in with the more traditional punk elements. Thankfully, not all of this is at the same time and whilst there’s always six instruments being played at any one time, it never becomes overwhelming. Instead, it’s all blended together to ensure people are jumping and singing from start to finish. Ross, Moshville.co.uk

Fake News & Propaganda (to be released Feb) is Ferocious Dog’s most eclectic album to date. Some of the songs are co-written with Jeremy Cunningham (Levellers) and Nick Burbridge (McDermott’s 2 Hours. The album tackles issues such as “fracking” “media brainwashing” and “mental health” amongst others.

Ferocious Dog are Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.
