Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Wreckless Eric (vocals); Malcolm Morley (acoustic guitar, electric guitar); John Brown (electric guitar, bass guitar); Eunan Brady (electric guitar); Peter Solley (keyboards); Geir Waade (drums).
  • Recording information: Britannia Row Studios.
  • Wreckless Eric had already begun to tire of Stiff's promotion of him as a drunken rebellious lout by the time of his second album, The Wonderful World of Wreckless Eric. He hadn't grown strong enough to break free of Stiff's hold, but he was able to clean up his sound enough for The Wonderful World to make his music slightly more accessible -- which means it just doesn't sound as messy as his debut. Wreckless Eric still has an odd, idiosyncratic point of view, but the sound is streamlined enough to make his snarls and growls palatable. Also, his hooks are getting stronger overall, and while only "Take the Cash" is on the level of "Whole Wide World," the rest of the record is comprised of rockers (and two pointless covers of Tommy Roe and Buddy Holly) that are quite enjoyable. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
