What Happened To Pub Rock # 19
Our today's artist is not necessarily to be assigned to this genre. But to present his skill without live background and it's experience it would be difficult having success. Eric Goulden or better known as Wreckless Eric was one of the first artist signed to the legendary STIFF label. He wrote with Whole Wide World maybe one of the best love song ever. His first record is full of little pop gems but none got the grade of Whole Wide World. After several years of living with his wife Amy Rigby in France they now living and performing in the US. I maybe listened to his song hundreds of times and never get bored. People may say he's a one-hit wonder and this might be true but he's an artist that I combine with one of the best eras in music.
