Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Holly started her musical career as a co-founder member of all girl garage band Thee Headcoatees, who were Thee Headcoats splinter group in 1991. Holly made her first solo album, The Good Things, in 1995.
Although often connected with garage rock, Holly's music is more a mixture of pre-rock electric country blues, folk and less frantic rock & roll. It brings to mind a bourbon soaked honky tonk bar, evenings on a dusty front porch with your faithful hound, cracked hearts and foot stomping good times. She creates a world all of her own, one that's warm hearted, true to it's roots and not swayed by fads and fashions.
Holly has collaborated with all kinds of folks, including the 1999 release with Billy Childish 'In Blood', on which the two gleefully celebrate one chord, one sound, one song. Another notable collaboration is 2001's 'Desperate Little Town' with Dan Melchior. After playing with The White Stripes in the USA, and supporting them at a few London shows, the three of them became friends, and the trio recorded 'It's True That We Love One Another', for the White Stripes album Elephant. Holly has also recorded with The Greenhornes and they released a special Christmas 2002 single together on Damaged Goods called Little Stars. Holly also appears on the Greenhornes album Dual Mono. She has also been a guest vocalist on various other bands projects, including live with Mudhoney and Rocket From The Crypt, appearing on several releases with them.
Most recently, Holly and her long-time US band mate Lawyer Dave, have a new side project under the guise of Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs. Their debut album 'You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying' was released on Damaged Goods Records in March 2007. They toured the USA and Europe extensively released several other albums, most recently Spring of 2018's Clippety Clop.
