About

Eric Goulden, who is of course widely known as Wreckless Eric, is celebrating his 70th year with a deluxe re-publication of his much-lauded autobiography A Dysfunctional Success.

The book was recently described by Marc Riley as 'the best rock n roll memoir ever written' but actually owes more to grubby interiors, clapped-out motor vehicles, low grade manual labour, and stunted social mores, a catalogue of social dysfunction ni the UK from the fifties to the eighties.

Eric first came to prominence ni 1977 with the release of his debut 45, the enduring Whole Wide World. He was given the name Wreckless Eric to hide behind. Eventually he realised he was stuck with it. He sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain's biggest underground household name, much loved and often misunderstood.

His albums encapsulate pop, bubblegum, garage trash and psychedelia. His live performances are sonic journeys through time and space. Eric presents himself alone if not simply with electric and acoustic guitars, and electronics of his own making. 

For this performance he'll be featuring songs that illustrate the story of his dysfunction, and of course there'll be readings from A Dysfunctional Success.
