Best known as the poster boy for Stiff Records in the late '70s, "Wreckless" Eric Goulden brings a background in power-pop to complement Rigby's knack for intense lyrical storytelling. The two met on tour when Rigby covered Eric's early hit "Whole Wide World," and was joined onstage by Wreckless Eric himself. They married years later, and their collaboration is a blend of two complementary tastes. Rigby's own power-pop, alt-folk style is offset by Wreckless Eric's smart and calculated rock. They seamlessly trade off from background to solo to duet, shifting styles from edgy psychedelia to hard rock to a '60s-era Johnny Cash cover.
