Dredd Foole (aka Dan Ireton) is the Boston equivalent of Los Angeles'
Wild Man Fischer.
His spaced-out vocals engage sloppy rhythms in
Cramps-ian garage-rock numbers.
He enrolled the Volcano Suns (renamed Din
for the occasion) to record
Eat My Dust Cleanse My Soul (Religious, 1984) and
Take Off Your Skin (PVC, 1987).
The home recording In Quest of Tense (Forced Exposure, 1995), his first
solo albums in a long time, was an underrated classic of lo-fi folk-rock that
stemmed from an haphazard fusion of punk-rock, acid-rock and free jazz.
Daze on the Mounts (Child of Microtones, 2004 - Family Vineyard, 2007),
a collaboration with Matt Valentine and Erika Elder
of MV & EE ,
The Whys of Fire (Ecstatic Yod, 2004), a live collaboration with
Sonic Youth's guitarist Thurston Moore,
Six Organs of Admittance's drummer Chris Corsano and members of Pelt,
and A Long Losing Battle with Eloquence and Intimance (Ecstatic Yod, 2005), a collection of songs for vocals and acoustic guitar,
contributed to revive his career, although neither achieved the poignancy
of In Quest of Tense.
In fact, they were all vastly inferior.
The double-disc Kissing the Contemporary Bliss (2008), that compiles
and revisits material from 2004 and 2005 recorded with help from
Matt Valentine and Erika Elder and Coot Moon on banjo, restored
Foole's reputation, despite containing an impressive amount of bizarre
and even delirious blues, gospel and folk reinterpretations.
