I have just got into this guy after watching a programme about Stiff records. I seriously love what I'm hearing. I def need to get an album of his. Any fans here? if so what album should I get? both his late and early material seems pretty good.

I've never listened to his old stuff, but I have The Donovan of Trash. It's good, a little samey at parts for my tastes, but there are some great songs on it like Joe Meek and Henry's Flat which make it worth it.

I only know Whole Wide World because of the movie Stranger Than Fiction and I like that song a lot. I guess I'll have to buy some of his stuff and check it out

Nah -- one of those all-balls-and-no-talent types from the 70's.

Yeah, I was watching that as well. BBC do great documentaries.
Can't say I know a ton of Wreckless Eric material to be able to help out though.

That's inappropriate for this forum. :p:

Man...these two recent songs of his are awesome. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=13800615 Especially 'Sign of the chicken'. I can't believe he is so over looked.
