In his thirty-seven year career Wreckless Eric has made seventeen albums and worked with, or had his songs covered by, artists as diverse as The Proclaimers, Yo La Tengo, Ian Dury, Amy Rigby, The Lightning Seeds, Holly Golightly, Nick Lowe, Two Lone Swordsmen, Cliff Richard, The Monkees, and Ian Hunter, to name a few. His first record - Whole Wide World - was released by Stiff Records in 1977. However Eric proved to be too maverick for both punk and the mainstream and all but disappeared from view, surfacing in various guises and eventually finding his place as Britain's biggest underground household name, much loved and much misunderstood. In 2012, the painter Peter Blake named Wreckless Eric as one of the most important pop icons of the past forty years, and included him on the remake of The Beatles Sergeant Pepper's cover where he takes his place between David Hockney and Grayson Perry. Today Eric lives in bohemian splendour in upstate New York where he spends his time painting, writing and recording.
