Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realized he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, lilting enchantment, squalls of feedback, dissonance, bizarre stories and backchat.

Eric began his recording life on Stiff Records in 1977 with his enduring hit Whole Wide World when he was little more than an ex-teenage art student. Eventually he sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain's biggest underground household name, much loved and often underestimated.

He shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn't do comebacks because he never went away. He won't recreate 1978 for you, he'll blow your mind instead. Forty years of touring have left him in good shape. He's coming to town.

His latest album 'amERICa' is available on Fire Records.
