The Len Bright Combo – ‘Someone Must’ve Nailed Us Together’
Taken from the Fire Records reissue The Len Bright Combo “Wreckless Eric Presents The Len Bright Combo By The Len Bright Combo”.
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 former Milkshakes 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 it’s money.
Hardly in step with the UK fads of the day, the trio toured with their own PA system, blasting out performances like each one could be their last. Soon, it would be, as they parted ways after two underground albums released in the space of a year, leaving behind a collection of smoldering gems.
These reissues will finally make the albums widely available and have been lovingly re-assembled, including detailed and entertaining liner notes from Eric himself, taking us back to those days, warts and all.
