During a chunk of the 1980s Dredd Foole, a.k.a. Dan Ireton, guided a visceral garage-cum-avant vision with
backing band The Din (lined with members of Mission of Burma and Volcano Sons) before stripping
down and recording the alarmingly decisive (and divisively received) folk-heavy In the Quest of Tense solo fulllength
in 1993. Since, the Foole has been a beacon for many modern-day electrified folk explorers like Six
Organs of Admittance and Charalambides. Originally issued as a limited CD-R, Daze on the Mounts is
now available for the masses. Echoing between a Tim Buckley-esque bellow, Erika Elder’s environmental
treatments (harmonica, synthesizer, percussion), and the truly three-dimensional psychedelic production work
of Matt Valentine (Tower Recordings, MV & EE) Dredd Foole displays as staggering a song cycle and
avant-folk expression as one’s ever heard before.
