"Wreckless Eric Presents The Len Bright Combo" is the first album by THE LEN BRIGHT COMBO and the first in a series of WRECKLESS ERIC reissues by Fire Records.

One of the most influential artists to emerge from the Stiff Records stable in the late 1970's and early 1980's, WRECKLESS ERIC inspired a legion of artists from Yo La Tengo to The Vaccines and from Marianne Faithful to Lilly Allen.

THE LEN BRIGHT COMBO was one of Eric's early post-Stiff bands, recorded in the mid-80s.

These rough garage rock albums stayed true to his DIY roots and have now become very difficult to get hold of.

The reissues feature new packaging as well as extensive liner notes from the one and only WRECKLESS ERIC.

An explosive beat combo ruling over the mid-80's UK Medway scene, THE LEN BRIGHT COMBO paired WRECKLESS ERIC with the ramshackle rhythm section of Russ Wilkins and Bruce Band.

Putting today's garage pretenders to shame, the combo recorded two albums of rough and ready pop blasts, with the shake and stomp never losing Eric's sharp wit, or melodic punch.

These records contain many of his strongest songs, giving his iconic hit "Whole Wide World" a run for its money.
