    1. That sounds probable as there was a connection between Larry Wallis of the PF and Wreckless Eric in the form of Stiff Records...

      Merry Christmas!

  16. In a strange coincidence I was listening to Mr. Wreckless earlier this Xmas morning (and was also inspired to look up his Wikipedia entry).
