Artist: FOOLE, DREDD
Title: Songs To Despond Ya
Format: LP
Label: Apostasy

Price: $14.00

Artist: FOOLE, DREDD
Title: A Long, Losing Battle with Eloquence and Intimance
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"7 songs of studio-recorded solo Dredd Foole on vocals and acoustic guitar, in a totally different vein than the last Dredd Foole & the Din record with Pelt & Thurston Moore ( The Whys of Fire )." "For years and years (maybe about 17 or so), people have been pleading with Dan Ireton to record an album of his songs, as they are here, "mostly in one take". That has, almost unbelievably at this point, finally been taken care of. Not necessarily "new" or particuarly "weird", this is unquestionably (for lack of better terminology), "American". And when was the last time you could admit to that? In front of a crackling fire, it could perhaps sound good enough to melt into the floor, but even those illuminated by mere fluorescence will find pure captivation. Words, voice, guitar, culturally-informed emotional expression. Printed inner sleeve with lyrics, just like the old days. Great Kim Gordon cover." - FE.

Artist: FOOLE, DREDD
Title: Daze On The Mounts
Format: CD
Label: Family Vineyard
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Hey, smooch! The FOOLE, aka DAN IRETON, has finally come out and ended a near decade of silence and Daze on the Mounts, a spiraling three-dimensional crest of the so-called avant-folk expression, is the celebratory homecoming. Originally a limited 2004 CDR, this reissue presents the colossal side for all. In collaboration with MATT VALENTINE and ERIKA ELDER (MV/EE, BUMMER ROAD, TOWER RECORDINGS), two of modern-times purest interstellar travelers, Dredd Foole bounds between Tim Buckley-esque bellow and a hyper-extended take on the song form (a dewy mash of Ra-space and Vermont-lore) alongside environmental treatments (harmonica, synthesizer, percussion) and his own acoustic guitar work to fully transcend limitations. From the visceral 80s garage days with THE DIN to becoming a beacon for many a free folk explorer, the Foole remains a bona fide master of universal revelation." - Family Vineyard.

Artist: FOOLE, DREDD
Title: In Quest Of Tense
Format: CD
Label: Forced Exposure
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Dredd Foole is the name used to designate the music of Boston-area vocal/guitar artist Dan Ireton. He used to lead a band under the name Dredd Foole & the Din, recording two great, mostly neglected albums in the 80s for labels known as Homestead and PVC. It was commonly known that his band was one of the only Boston bands worth seeing post-Mission of Burma (who backed him up actually, as the original Din, on his debut single in 1982). Those records were fine for the time, but they hardly captured the full intensity-scope of the 1st-gen post-VU/Stooges blare of that band in their prime. In the late 80s Dan wisely abandoned the rock band format and has sporadically been performing a series of breathtaking shows in the otherwise ready-to-be-nuked-today local "club scene" ever since. Sometimes solo acoustic, sometimes with percussion, electric slide guitar or violin accompaniment, he sings with one of the most electrifying post-Tim Buckley vocal chords ever heard, and his concept of multiphonic non-traditional folk music with apocalyptic come-down power-appeal has finally been documented with this long overdue release. A masterpiece of personal trance-sound-vision & legitimate psychedelic space-whisper revelations, at your command." - FE. 1994 release in a stunning C.O.N.
