Wreckless Eric, one of Hull’s most iconic musical exports, returns to the city for two very special, intimate evenings.
Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realised he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, squalls of feedback, lilting enchantment, bizarre stories and backchat. Thirty seven years of touring have left him in good shape and he’s coming to town.
“One of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Great Britain” – Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music
“Like Ray Davies, Kevin Ayers and Ian Dury, he is a truly great British songwriter” – MOJO magazine
