The one & only live & in person:
Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realised he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat. Nothing Eric has to say sounds like it was said by someone else first. Some people can’t take it. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape. He’s coming to town. A new album is scheduled for release in November on Fire Records.
Wreckless Eric is a hero to all those of us who love a good kitchen sink drama set to music. He takes the strangeness in the everyday and sets it to song. Like Ray Davies, Kevin Ayers and Ian Dury, he is a truly great British songwriter – Phil Alexander, editor in chief, MOJO magazine
A sound that Joe Meek would have killed for – Q Magazine
Le Beat Group Electique…a blast of sonic honesty, soul-bearing poetry married to Alan Freed-approved rock ‘n’ roll – Asbury Park Press
…flashes of pre-stardom Beatles, Jonathan Richman, Syd Barrett, Bobby Fuller, and the stripped-down side of Robyn Hitchcock. But mostly it’s like Wreckless Eric – The Vinyl District
