This event has been and gone.
More than a band, they are a family. “To listen to the Ferocious Dog as it snarls and growls at the world is to show responsibility” said a Louder Than War review of their brilliant, recently released and Fake News and Propaganda album, but this is an outfit that shows compassion too. They’ve been hailed as “a representation of our gut feeling, savage and merciless” and at the same time, called “folk in the grand tradition of it being the peoples sound.” Ferocious Dog, however are all those things. And that, in a world where the lines of truth are blurred by the rich, powerful and corrupt, is priceless. A band that does drives for foodbanks – not for headlines, but because it was the right thing to do - a band that welcomes Big Issue, Hunt Sabs and conservationists Sea Shepherd to their shows. No, here the feeling is important. Ferocious Dog is the group where fans were tattooed in the shop belonging to the lead singer, Ken Bonsall, where the violinist and band leader, Dan Booth prints the posters, and Ryan Brooks plays the lead guitar. They can wow a punk festival one minute, a folk festival the next – and fit right in anywhere.
