Live from The Avalon Lounge: Wreckless Eric
From a live webstream at The Avalon Lounge.
Catskill-based Wreckless Eric performs. WGXC will have a webcast of the entire show, and will broadcast the entire show on 90.7-FM.
As Wreckless Eric he needs little introduction —he wrote and recorded the classic Whole Wide World and had a hit with it back in 1977. Since then it's been a hit for countless other artists including The Monkees, Cage The Elephant and most recently for Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. As Eric Goulden it's a little more complicated -a musician, artist, writer, recording engineer and producer, he didn’t like either the music business or the mechanics of fame or the name he’d been given to hide behind, so he crawled out of the spotlight and went underground. He went on to release twenty something albums in forty something years under various names -The Len Bright Combo, Le Beat Group Electrique, The Donovan Of Trash, The Hitsville House Band, and with his wife as one half of Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby, finally realizing he was stuck with the name Wreckless Eric. Eric’s three most recent albums ‘amERICa’, Construction Time & Demolitionand Transienceare widely praised as his best work to date. His albums encapsulate pop, bubblegum, garage trash and psychedelia. His live performance is a sonic journey through time and space incorporating songs from all stages of his long career. Unmasked, unhinged and still alive -a survivor of Covid-19 (resulting in a near-fatal heart attack), Eric presents himself alone if not simply with electric and acoustic guitars, electrified harmonica, piano and electronics of his own making.
