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.
His new album amERICa out now on Fire Records is enjoying universal acclaim from critics and public alike.
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.

‘One of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Great Britain’ – Marc Riley , BBC 6 MUSIC
‘Wreckless Eric anatomizes his surroundings with the wide-eyed thrill of discovery. His American flyover reveals simmering cultural disturbances and essential beauty alike.’ – PITCHFORK
