Holly Golightly Back w/New LP, Tour

 

White Stripes- and
Billy Childish-approved rockin’ soul ‘n’ garage vixen returns!

By Blurt Staff

Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs, freshly signed
to Transdreamer Records, drop the album Dirt
Don’t Hurt
on October 14. Holly is joined by Lawyer Dave (a.k.a. the
Brokeoffs) for some hard-thumping rawk und roll, swapping instruments and
slapping each other silly from the fun of it all. Expect musical mayhem on
guitar drums, banjo, standup bass and, as the label tells us, “an array of
other instruments. It’s just the two of them.”

 

 

Here’s the scoop, courtesy
Transdreamer:



The new,
self-produced album was recorded in five days during the middle of a 50-date
tour in the town of Gijon on Spain’s northern coast, at an analog studio called
Circo Perrotti, which is outfitted with vintage recording gear and dedicated to
discerning production values.Their music is a lo-fi stew of blues, country and
rockabilly, at once avant-garde and old-timey.

 


Holly Golightly kicked off her musical career in Thee Headcoatees, the
legendary all-girl garage band, closely affiliated with U.K. cult legend Billy Childish.
She spent eight years as a
Headcoatee, and during those years released
her first solo record, The Good Things, in 1995. She has appeared on multiple
collaborative albums, contributing the title track for the Jim Jarmusch movie
Broken Flowers with The Greenhornes, and celebrating “One Chord, One Sound, One
Song” with Billy Childish on the album In Blood. Holly also guested on The
White Stripes’ “(Well It’s True That) We Love One Another” from their platinum
selling
Elephant.  

 

This album is the 19th for Holly Golightly, whose discography is a cacophony of
albums (studio and live), EPs, singles and 10-inch LPs and iTunes-only releases.
Although many of the recordings are best known to
Americans as imports on the U.K.-based Damaged Goods label, several have been
released on labels like Kill Rock Stars, Sympathy for the Record Industry, Box
Theory, Super Electro and Flapping Jet.



Lawyer Dave had been playing stand-up bass in
Holly’s touring line up for many years, and
Dirt
Don’t Hurt is testament the countless
miles they’ve covered together. The Brokeoffs have an independently released
album Rest Stop, which was recorded entirely at rest stops that were closed for
construction.
