Wreckless Eric

Wreckless Eric began his recording life 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 much misunderstood.

Wreckless Eric released three albums between 1978-1980 - Wreckless Eric, The Wonderful World of Wreckless Eric and Big Smash. In the 1980's he formed groups The Captains of Industry, The Len Bright Combo (with ex-members of Thee Milkshakes), The HItsville House Band and Le Beat Group Electrique.

Reverting to the name Wreckless Eric for acclaimed albums, his 2018 album Construction Time and Demolition was regarded as a career high and arguably his finest moment.

"Wreckless Eric is a Ray Davies and Ian Dury, he is a truly great British songwriter."
