Vibrant, melodic and often vitriolic garage pop from imminent sexagenarian Wreckless Eric.
Plus, live music from former Jesus Licks singer Dominique Golden
with her quirky and twisted modern folk.
In his thirty-seven year career Wreckless Eric has made seventeen albums and worked with, or had his songs covered by artists as diverse as The Proclaimers, Yo La Tengo, Ian Dury, Amy Rigby, The Lightning Seeds, Holly Golightly, Nick Lowe, Two Lone Swordsmen,The Pretty Things, Cliff Richard, The Monkees and Ian Hunter, to name a few.
His first record, Whole Wide World, released by the newly formed Stiff Records in 1977 was (and continues to be) a huge hit. However Eric proved to be too maverick for punk and the mainstream and all but disappeared from view, surfacing in various guises and eventually finding his place as Britain’s biggest underground household name, much loved and much misunderstood.
In 2012, the painter Peter Blake named Wreckless Eric as one of the most important pop icons of the past forty years, and included him on the remake of The Beatles Sergeant Pepper’s cover where he takes his place between David Hockney and Grayson Perry.
He recently signed to Fire Records and lives in bohemian splendour in upstate New York where he spends his time painting, writing and recording.
