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.
