A key figure on the New Zealand music scene since the early days of Flying Nun, Bill Direen's extraordinary output includes pop, rock, improvisation and poetry. On this recording he teams up with Mark Williams (guitar) and Johannes Contag (drums) to form the performing trio, Ferocious.
The release of this album may superficially appear to be something of a shift in direction for Rattle, given that we primarily (although by no means exclusively) release instrumental recordings, but the music on Ferocious falls firmly within Rattle's ongoing ethos of supporting the ever-evolving heritage of New Zealand's finest "art-music".
