Title: In Quest of Tense
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA

"Back in 94 there was little sense that a new scene was on the horizon, but there was. Indeed, things were beginning to break out all over. All they needed was a little push. In Quest of Tense was released on CD in 94 (FE 038) and was just what a lot of people needed, even if they didnt know it yet, or didnt quite realize what it was when they heard it. Dredd Foole(aka Dan Ireton) had been roving through the Boston music underground since the early 80s, with a series of bands using the name The Din, and then on his own. Bored, stoned, and listening to naught but free jazz and folk, Dredd went into his room with a four-track, a reverb, some guitars, and little else, emerging after a week with this masterpiece. The music takes a weird, improvisation-based electric folk form, something only previously mastered by Tim Buckley on Lorca and Blue Afternoon, and drives it straight into the clouds. Echo-soaked, massively-skronked, glossalalic to the point of no return, In Quest of Tense lit brain-fires from the Lower East Side to Austin. And it may have taken a while for their collective smoldering to erupt into a fire storm, but it did. And heres where it starts. An amazing album, today and always. Finally on vinyl." - Byron Coley, 2015. Limited edition of 400.

Artist: DREDD FOOLE
Title: Blues Sermon with Congregation
Format: LP
Label: Humito
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The first vinyl document of the Dredd and MV & EE collab recordings, this is a reissue of two deep sides originally released in 2004, as companion volumes to Kissing the Contemporary Bliss, in extremely limited runs. The sessions behind this record represent a singular apex of high in the catalogs of both Dredd Foole and MV & EE, where the playing and being of each of the three individuals involved coalesces into a singularly cosmic perception and extrapolation of the blues doctors truth, while simultaneously, individual sonorities and specialities drive their own Cadillac. A major work of contemporary psychedelic blues in its own right, a truly rare sighting of Dredd Foole on wax, this LP is also an essential piece of the puzzle for COM enthusiasts; this is a key document of the star-gobbling sound MV & EE were toying with as their private universe back in the early-mid oughts, including such sides as Lunar Blues and Cosmic Dust and the Electrobeam Hermit Thrush. Like those albums, MVs patented spectrasound techniques are on full display, creating a dazzling living environment in which Dredds otherworldly and piercingly free vocals orbit. Classic and singular psychedelic visioning, the sound here has almost has no known parallels I can think of, outside of Buckley/Underwood, or possibly Robbie Basho, but just gone." - Humito.
