Stiff Records has announced that they will release the debut album from WRECKLESS ERIC & AMY RIGBY.
Wreckless Eric was one of the original Stiff artists, releasing the legendary ‘Whole Wide World’ back in 1977. Since then he has made countless albums in different genres, remaining true to the DIY spirit of his early Stiff days. 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’.
‘Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby’ is a beautifully raw and touching album: vocal harmonies, crackling, buzzing atmospheres and the upbeat/downbeat lyrics of a couple that have been one too many times around the dance floor. There are no other musicians involved here, just Eric on guitars, bass guitar and organ, Amy on guitars and piano, plus the odd sample, some well placed percussion and an old bossa nova beatbox.
Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby have been touring together for over two years now. They describe themselves as 'a two piece rock 'n' roll group with vocal harmonies'. They will be following a 25 date US tour in the autumn with a UK tour in November in support of the album.
