The Ferocious Few


The Ferocious Few are Francisco Fernandez (guitar and vocals) and Daniel Aguilar (Drums and Drum machine), a duo hailing from San Francisco, California. Often playing from the pleasure of passer-bys in places such as Union Square, the Ferocious Few serve up a raw, real platter of rock and roll. With a twist of punk and a bit of rockabilly, the Ferocious Few come together to make their own blend of rock, inspired by the state of the country, life experiences and their personal music collections.

The Ferocious Few are Francisco Fernandez (guitar and vocals) and Daniel Aguilar (Drums and Drum machine), a duo hailing from San Francisco, California. Often playing from the pleasure of passer-bys in places such as Union Square, the Ferocious Few serve up a raw, real platter of rock and roll. With a twist of punk and a bit of rockabilly, the Ferocious Few come together to make their own blend of rock, inspired by the state of the country, life experiences and their personal music collections. Two-man duo The Ferocious Few formed in 2006 when Francisco Fernandez (composer/guitar/vocals) convinced Daniel Aguilar (percussion) to take their informal jam sessions in Oakland, CA to the streets of San Francisco with a portable P.A.. The Ferocious Few's stripped down, lo-fi sound has been classified as rock, punk, or rockabilly, and along with the bluesy elements of Fernandez's howling vocals, The Ferocious Few's raw sound may be best categorized in the increasingly ambiguous genre of garage rock. After recording the 5-song EP From The Streets to Your Heart in the summer of 2007 on Pro Tools in the back of a New Jersey strip club, they began selling it by the hundreds, then thousands, at local shows and street performances in and around San Francisco.

This garnered them enough of a local buzz in to gain some spots around the country, and when they arrived back home they found themselves being sought out to play at San Francisco's premiere venues. Remaining true to the title of their first EP, they could also still be found playing on the corner of O'Farrell and Powell streets with their portable equipment. "I like to be on the same level with everybody," says Fernandez about street performing, "What does the stage mean?" Whether playing on the streets of San Francisco with a portable P.A. or at Shorline Amphitheater's Download Festival 2008, The Ferocious Few deliver an tight, intimate performance regardless of the venue, signatured by Agular's rat-a-tat-tat cycles of rhythm with Fernandez's strained guitar and voice chiming in over the top to round out their sound. In traditional rock angst fashion, vocalist and composer Francisco Fernandez sings of heartbreak, pain, and lost love while referencing it all to the post-modern world around him and how it relates to everyone else.

"Our music is based on struggle, and that's what I think people can relate to," he says, "I want to create something that's relevant to our culture, not alienated by it." As of 2009, The Ferocious Few are holding out in a bidding war between local and national labels for the rights to the independently released Juices, their first full length LP. www.andrewbarsch.com Read more on Last.fm.
