Musicport presents Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby, who will be performing live at The Rifle Club, West Cliff, on Saturday 3 December.

Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby have individually been making distinctive and original music for decades – he a British iconoclast and wild-card survivor of the early Stiff Records, she a long-standing heroine of the New York pop scene – and for the last three years they have been touring in the US, UK and Europe.

Wreckless Eric 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 Stiff Records days.

Amy Rigby has been described by The Washington Post as “one of rock’s most distinctive and consistently excellent songwriters”.

There are no other musicians involved in performances – Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby sing together in harmony accompanied by electric guitar, bass and organ (Eric) and guitars and piano (Amy), plus the occasional sample and the odd bossanova beatbox.

The gig begins at 8pm.

Tickets are £8 in advance or £10 on door (telephone 01947 605089).
