Event description

Description

Eric Goulden, the man everyone knows as Wreckless Eric, is a rare example of an older and established artist who hasn’t lapsed into comfortable formulas. Exactly a year after his last album, the well-received Construction Time & Demolition, he’s back with a new album, Transience. You can hear tracks from Transcience by clicking here:

For every song of Wreckless Eric’s you remember from his early days on Stiff Records, he’s recorded 10 more that you’ve probably never heard. The early DIY British indie label may have been his entry-level position into the music business, but Eric Goulden didn’t stop making music after the novelty of Stiff Records - and his being known as Wreckless Eric - wore off. Forty years on, Goulden is still making insightful music while the original label is but a footnote in music history.

For these tour dates Eric will be playing his huge sounding acoustic guitar, electric piano and a battered electric guitar through a series of homemade fuzz boxes. He’ll be accompanied by Ian Button (Papernut Cambridge, Death In Vegas) on drums, guitar, bass and keyboard.

He includes some of his older material and will always play Whole Wide World somewhere in the set, but this won’t be a nostalgic stroll through the glory days. He’ll very likely play the every tune from his new album. Expect to be sonically and emotionally challenged.
