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 for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album 'amERICa' reminded those who've kept the faith and new generations of fans what he's all about.
Many artists of Wreckless Eric's era and tradition have imitators, but few of yesteryear's outliers can catch up with their descendants, let alone best them. amERICa is that rare record. Pitchfork
He won't recreate 1978 for you, he'll blow your mind instead.
Forty two years of touring and recording have left Eric in good shape and his brand new album Construction Time & Demolition does exactly what the title suggests.
He's coming to town.
