Change Starts With A Ferocious Few.
If you could melt the last argument you had with your girlfriend and the way you made up, that melted moment, hardened and played would be a song already written by The Ferocious Few.
When pivotal moments in human history occur they have often been preceded by astronomical harbingers categorized by real or imagined celestial events; at the turn of the dark ages in medieval Europe farmers reported flaming chariots racing across the sky, in Ancient Egypt large areas of dark rectangular shapes materialized to signal the coming of the great Pharoah Amenhotep III, and just recently a 500” tall glowing green pyramid formed of what appeared to be pure molten light appeared pointing straight downwards at the center of Delores Park in the Mission district of San Francisco. Though most reports have been discredited due to the intoxicated nature of the eyewitnesses, all of those present witnessed this large and fantastic phenomena pointing at one man, Francisco Fernandez, the effect of which, many stated, took the hair clean off of his body.
Such a sight may be unusual, but as historical precedents suggest, not uncommon, because as stated, this young man is about to usher in such extraordinary energy into the world, it would seem foolish to think that a physical manifestation on such a scale would not come to warn or perhaps lure us as it has so often in times gone past. You see, Mr. Fernandez is no ordinary being, but the lead singer of a band known as the Ferocious Few, and he was at that moment deciding to expand his band into a vehicle of such ferocity that it would in all probability upset the balance of life on earth, which luckily is the very intention of it’s creation.
The Ferocious Few who were two, now really are a few, and have been performing with duel drummers and other members, one of whom is reported to be a ghost from a sunken Louisiana trading vessel, run aground in the 1920’s. All of this is hewn around Francisco Fernandez’ golden voice, an instrument of beauty and terror within the same breath, and his songs viewed from the perspective of a unique individual who is wired for only one purpose, to be a voice at the edge of the darkest abyss, beckoning and saving you simultaneously.
This new line-up has recorded an album so intense it has become the first record to be banned “before release”, but lawyers struggle to clear the release with the federal government and several secret societies and soon it will be heard by each and every person in the known and unknown world. During a recent trip to record songs, Francisco discovered the true nature of his volatile make-up when he burst into harsh blue flames during a particularly intense vocal take, but The Few didn’t care, they are outlaws of love and the sonic boom.
These true vagabonds of American music have honed their skills at the edge of the night, and sharpened their knife sharp teeth on the depraved mouth of a society dying, but dying to party. The Ferocious Few pipe direct from the vein of what once was good and true in this country, but not in the good old days sense of rocking chairs on porches and home made lemonade, rather rocking chair’s thrown through porch windows and lemonade somehow on fire, forever.
Put their music on your stereo and it will drip down your walls. Listen to it alone and it will feel like you have been flattened by a train and reabsorbed into the earth. Play it at a party and a Bacchanalian orgy is likely to ensue. Dig into the ground and you’ll hear it. Drown yourself and you’ll hear it. The Ferocious Few accept no substitute, give no quarter, live for one day alone like a butterfly of pure sonic gossamer and die and live again every time they strap on a guitar.
Sure the rumours are hard to believe, but there’s only one one way to truly know for certain, when you see the sign calling that name, you better come running. These are uncertain times and we have to cling onto what we know we have got. One thing is sure, wherever they may be, in the darkest hills of Borneo, snaking naked down a mountainside, their guitars in hand, or playing at a street corner right near you, the Ferocious Few are the real deal, and nobody can keep this music from surviving.
Catch them as soon as you can before they are taken from us or implode figuratively and literally, energy transfer on this scale can be a terrifying thing when unregulated, come and be terrified.
