"In The Red is proud to announce the re-release of the self-titled
album by The Traditional Fools, a garage-punk-thrash-surf trio
consisting of Ty Segall, Andrew Luttrell and David Fox. They recorded
and released their lone full-length back in 2008—it sold out quickly and
has never been re-pressed until now.
Recorded live in the studio, The Traditional Fools is low on fidelity
and high in energy. The band’s sound is a perfect combination of ’60s
garage, vintage surf reverb and early LA punk performed with trashy,
reckless abandon. Covers by Redd Kross and Thee Headcoats give an idea
where these guys were coming from, and songs about bikini babes and
shredsticks tell where they were at. Grab a bike, tank top, sunglasses
and every beer you can find, and enjoy surf-punk done right."
