Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby are a two-piece rock and roll group who have individually been making distinctive and original music for decades: he a British iconoclast and wild-card survivor of the early Stiff Records, she as a long-standing heroine of the New York pop scene. Their 2008 debut album Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby and their live show have enjoyed rapturous critical acclaim in the US, UK & Europe. Now they’re back with Two-Way Family Favourites, a shimmering collection of songs written by other artists – to be released 30 August 2010 on their own Southern Domestic Recordings label and supported with a UK tour.

“When we started playing together, we hoped to get work as a covers band playing in bars in France – but when people heard our version of playing covers they were confused. So we knew we were on to something.”

Wreckless Eric recorded the legendary single “Whole Wide World” back in 1977. Since then he has made countless albums in different guises, moving between bubblegum, pop, grunge, psychedelia and techno, but always remaining true to the DIY spirit of his early days on Stiff.

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. Her five solo albums embrace pop, country, folk-rock, psychedelia and the indefinable.

With Two-Way Family Favourites the duo continue to develop their warped, harmony-rich sound. There are no other musicians involved – Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby accompany themselves with electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar, keyboards and percussion.
