IMPASSIONED political songs of broken Britain will be performed at Victoria Hall in Settle on February 25.

Ferocious Dog are back in the region after a year that saw them play Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd and join the Levellers for a sold out European and UK tour.

Louder Than War’s John Robb was one of those who raved about their Glastonbury performance last summer.

He said: “There is no way they’re following any hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers.

“They are the music business’s worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission.”

Ferocious Dog will be back in Europe this year, for both a tour and leading festivals,

They are a full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations.

The combination of instruments is said to create a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.

The songs are deeply personal and their fans can identify with the words. Call 01792 825718 to book tickets.
