WRECKLESS ERIC shuns nostalgia and doesn’t do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. An original Stiff Records artist in 1977 alongside Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, the Damned and Ian Dury, Eric is one of England’s great underground songwriters. His classic “Whole Wide World” has been covered by the Monkees, Green Day, Mental As Anything, the Replacements, the Proclaimers and even Will Ferrell (in Stranger Than Fiction). His other hits from that time include Semaphore Signals, Reconnez Cherie, Hit & Miss Judyand A Pop Song. With special guest JOHN DOWLER (Young Modern, The Zimmermen) with MARK MCCARTNEY

Eric turned his back on mainstream success in the ‘80s, forming the fiercely independent garage band, The Len Bright Combo, following which he released a string homemade solo albums, and a number of albums with his wife Amy Rigby.
