English musician and songwriter, known in the punk rock days as "Wreckless Eric." He went to art school first and made his first record in 1976 for Stiff records. An alcohol addiction problem caused him difficulty in his profession. He joined a group called Captains of Industry but his drinking destroyed his career with the group. He faced his addiction, and in 1989 he moved to France for nine years. He subsequently formed the Len Bright Combo and has prided himself on cutting only home made records except for one version of Clevor Trever. In 1989, having confronted a serious drink problem, Eric moved to France where he lived for 9 years. With 14 albums to his credit, he has continued to write music and his songs have been recorded by other groups and vocalists.
Sy Scholfield quotes his book "A dysfunctional Success: The Wreckless Eric Manual" (London, Do-Not Press, 2003), p. 11.
