Wreckless Eric

When the punk rock explosion in the USA, the UK and Australia subsided in the late 1970s a second wave of so-called 'post-punk' or 'new wave' acts emerged.
Wreckless Eric in the 1970s
Among these was the English singer Eric Goulden, known as Wreckless Eric. He made a few interesting albums and singles but for me two singles are outstanding.
Released on Stiff Records, they are, the much-acclaimed:
and Hit and Miss Judy (1979)
Click the titles to hear the songs (best played loudly!)
A little more recently!
And if you would like to hear it sung in a Scottish accent, listen to the Proclaimers
