Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby

Two piece rock and roll group

Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby have individually been making distinctive and original music for decades, he a British iconoclast and wild-card survivor of the early Stiff Records, she as a long-standing heroine of the New York pop scene. For the last three years they have been touring in the US, UK and Europe. In 2008 the self-styled `two piece rock 'n' roll group' released their debut album "Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby", which enjoyed rapturous critical acclaim in the USA and has been the subject of a four star review in Mojo. They have also recently recorded a new double A side single, "Teflon Wok" c/w "Bobblehead Doll".

Wreckless Eric recorded the legendary single "Whole Wide World" back in 1977. Since then he has made countless albums in different guises, moving between bubblegum, pop, grunge, psychedelia and techno, but always remaining true to the DIY spirit of his early Stiff days. His most recent solo album, Bungalow Hi, was described by Andrew Weatherall as sounding "like Bo Diddley trying to outdo Aphex Twin".

Amy Rigby started a country band in eighties New York City, went on to form girl group The Shams, and began her solo career in 1996 with the US hit album Diary Of A Mod Housewife. Her five solo albums embrace pop, country, folk-rock, psychedelia and the indefinable. The Washington Post calls her "One of rock's most distinctive and consistently excellent songwriters".

There are no other musicians involved - Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby sing together in harmony accompanied by electric guitar, bass and organ (Eric) and guitars and piano (Amy), plus the occasional sample and the odd bossanova beatbox.

"A triumph of an album." Mojo

" ...their loopy, layered approach, keenly turning conventional boy/girl pop-group convention on ear, sinks in deep." Uncut

" It was warm, it was funny, it was sharp, it was intense...and very possibly one of the best gigs I've been to in recent years." Word Magazine

" golden honey poured over a battered old tube amp." Los Angeles Times

" Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby have individually been making distinctive and original music for decades. They're currently celebrating their new marital and musical union with a charmingly homespun eponymous album." TimeOut NY

" ...charming, funny, harmony-rich rock-and-roll sprinkled with rollicking Tex-Mex keyboards, fuzzy garage-rock, and Mott the Hoople allusions." Philadelphia Inquirer

" ...a set of noisy, unconventional pop songs that capture both Eric's wry experimentalism and Rigby's gift for harmony. An avant-garde Johnny and June." Houston Press

" The static-riddled spiritedness highlights their individual quirks as well as the easy chemistry between the pair." Pitchfork

". the underground royal couple's self-titled debut a charming homespun marvel which yield bevies of mood shifts and sonic surprises." SF Chronicle

" ...a winning combination of sugar-sweet hooks, buzzing atmospherics and appealingly off-kilter harmonies that give off nothing but love." Nashville Scene

" ...a singular, fascinating and - thankfully - wayward album." Rock n Reel

" The show was pretty much an exercise in presenting what can only be considered as total entertainment. You simply don't see an act of this width and depth every day of the week." The Next Big Thing

" Staggering" Der Speigel

" ...two certified eccentrics conjure up a collection filled with eerie atmospherics, limber arrangements and rambling, gently cushioned melodies." Performing Songwriter

" ...amped-up front-porch feel with what happens to be a big handful of great songs. The couple each switched effectively from acoustic to electric to bass to keyboards, from lead to rhythm, from frontperson to accompanist." Idolator

" What fine songs these are! Personal and self-revelatory, yet also sparkling with evocatively imagist and descriptive detail, each original composition is a standout. You can hear the strength each gives the other." Blurt Online

" Has there ever been a rock 'n' roll couple quite like Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby? These wisecracking, worldly and wise newlyweds are something like a cult-level version of Ray Davies and Chrissie Hynde." Cleveland Free Times
