4th March 2014: New album All Her Fault out now!

From the Transdreamer site: "a raw, rough-hewn stew of twisted roots music forged by the duo’s distinct musical interests — she listens to late ’50s/early ’60s R&B and he loves rock ’n’ roll. “I’m not looking to achieve something that hasn’t been achieved before,” she confesses. “We just what we do. The songs are really all that changes.”

24th JULY 2012: NEW HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS ALBUM OUT OCTOBER 9TH

Holly and Dave recorded the album, Sunday Run Me Over, at their home studio, which Dave built on the rural patch of land they share (and where they also rescue horses, dogs, chickens, geese and goats alongside making music).

From Holly:

“I guess I’m kind of a traditionalist, and I stick to what works for me, which is keeping things as simple as possible. But I certainly don’t want every record to sound the same, and I think I’ve managed to pull that off, within the strict parameters that I’ve set for myself. As far as I’m concerned, there’s no limit.

We rented in some pretty fancy equipment this time around, so that we could make it sound a bit different. The benefit of doing it at home is that you can take your time doing it, which is a luxury you don’t get when you’re up against the clock in the studio. You can record in your pyjamas, or you can trip out there at four in the morning if you have a mind to change something. Having the freedom to do it at your own pace allows you to make music that sounds unhurried, and it makes for a lot of space in the music.

“We really did give this one our undivided attention, and I think that really does show. We worked really hard on it — not that we haven’t worked hard on the others, but on this one, we wouldn’t stop working on something until we were a hundred per cent happy with it before moving on. We also recorded it in the dead of winter, which we don’t normally do, so it wasn’t too hot. We had lots of energy in the studio, ’cos it was cold, and I think that’s reflected in the music.”

Sunday Run Me Over will be released by Transdreamer.

26TH JUNE 2012: A PILE OF NEW MERCHANDISE IN THE SHOP
Holly Golightly-Dirt Dont Hurt Tshirt
Yep, there's a whole new selection of tshirts, vests, bags etc now available in the shop.

Stock up on wears for round and about your homestead before they're gone!
12TH MARCH 2012: NEW HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS ALBUM

A new 10 track album, Long Distance, is out now.

Here's Holly talking about her reasons for making this album…

”After many requests to incorporate the best of the solo Holly Golightly songs into the live set, with top-notch backing provided by The Brokeoffs, I have picked some of my original band favourites and recorded this collection for old and new fans alike. The highlight for me was the chance to re-record '(You Ain't) No Big Thing,' the fantastic 1966 Sam and Dave classic that I first started performing live in 1995. It's one of my all time top tunes, along with 'My Love Is,' the fabulous Little Willie John number, which we've given a wistful lone banjo accompaniment this time around. There is an even mix of cover songs and originals to revisit, all of them corkers in their own right and all of them especially dear to me. 'Long Distance' is collection of my good-time-foot-tappers and sing-along-tear-jerkers. It's my top ten tracks prepared from scratch and served up fresh.”

Available from Damaged Goods.

Reissue of a fine lost album, a collaboration between Holly Golightly & Dan Melchior that was originally released on Sympathy For The Record Industry Records from California, it’s been out of print for around eight years and so folk though it was about time that was put right.

Recorded in London and Californian in 1999 with long time friend and Holly collaborator of some note Bruce Brand on percussion, the album features 10 tracks, some of which you’ll know if you’ve seen Holly play in the last decade like "Directly From My Heart" & "Further On Up The Road"; here they’re given some warm and friendly re-workings.

Also out 9th May. Looks like it's time to quickly save up the old pocket money.

NEW ALBUM OUT 29TH MARCH (UK/EU) & 30TH MARCH (US):
POSTED 18TH MARCH 2010


Holly and Lawyer Dave are back with their third album together as Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs.

‘Medicine County’ was written and recorded on a farmhouse just outside Athens in Georgia and as Holly says it’s “peppier” than the last album, in fact there’s only one slow song on the whole album which is probably down to the fact that this time they had a lot longer to work on the songs and recording, their last album was recorded in the middle of a very long European tour over a week or two in Spain.

So what does it sound like? Choc-full of ghostly blues, gut-bucket slide guitar, with a smattering of ol’ time country. This is just the disc for conjuring up the spirit of weird old America.

Anyone with an interest or liking for the music of The Band, Son House, or Hank Williams, sung by Nancy and Lee, should certainly check it out!

Holly’s mum painted the cover, which adds to the warm home-spun appeal.

12 brand new songs including a cover of Wreckless Eric’s ‘Murder In My Mind’ and a guest appearance by Tom Heinl on ‘Blood On The Saddle’ (Tom wrote Holly’s Christmas track ‘Christmas Tree On Fire’)

Tracklisting:

1. Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs - Forget It
2. Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs - Two Left Feet
3. Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs - Medicine County
4. Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs - Can't Lose

HOLLY ALBUM REISSUES: POSTED 15TH OCTOBER 2009

3 great Holly Golightly albums were rereleased earlier this year. All 3 were originally released on Sympathy For The Record Industry and have been unavailable for some time. Head over to www.damagedgoods.co.uk to order online.

Painted On CD/LP

This is a reissue of Holly Golightly’s third proper album which was originally released in 1997 on the Sympathy label in the USA, now finally available on digipak CD and 12” LP vinyl.

‘Painted On’ is one of Holly’s favourite albums and it features some of her regular live favourites including ‘A Length Of Pipe’ and ‘I Let My Daddy Do That’ which she now plays along with Lawyer Dave in her current incarnation as Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs.

Up The Empire CD/LP

This is a reissue of Holly Golightly’s first ever live album which was originally released in 1998 on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label in the USA, now finally available on Digipak CD and 12” LP vinyl.

‘Up The Empire’ was Holly’s first live albums and it features thirteen tracks that was apparently recorded in the summer of 1997 at Bridgetown’s premier nightspot, The Empire Ballroom and features some of her regular live favourites she’s still playing today including ‘Won’t Go Out’ and ‘You Ain’t No Big Thing Baby’.

Down Gina's At 3 CD/2LP

‘Come on in, put your cigarettes out and have a dance’ kicks off this reissue of Holly Golightly’s second live album which was originally released in 2004 on CD only on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label in the USA, now finally available on a double 12” LP vinyl for the first time and dusted down for a Digipak CD.

‘Down Gina’s At 3’ was recorded at the start of their US tour in 2004 and released by the end of it!

This is pretty much the line-up which recorded Holly’s classic ‘Truly She Is None Other’ album and features Bruce Brand on Drums, Eric Stein on lead Guitar and Jack Lawrence on Bass. Ko And The Knockouts appear on the encore tracks.

Apparently just after the tape had run out there was a final encore and Jack White got up and did a stunning version of Louie Louie with the band. Never mind eh!

NEW ALBUM OUT NOW: POSTED 14TH OCTOBER 2008

There's a brand spanking new Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs album out today 14th October 2008.

It's called, "Dirt Don't Hurt" and if you listen carefully, you may just be able to hear the mud on our shoes.

Released on our new U.S. label, Transdreamer for North America and on Damaged Goods for U.K. and Europe. And yes, there will absolutely is vinyl.

This particular project was recorded in the middle of our 50 date tour during the only break we had. That week found us in Gijon, Spain on the Northern coast. We chose to record there at an analog studio by the name of Circo Perotti which is outfitted with a lovely selection of vintage microphones and loads of ancient outboard treasures to play with. After wrangling with all the ghosts, goblins and gremlins that inhabit gear and studios of this nature, the record was completed in five days... which is one more day than we spent the last one, so it may seem a little over produced to some!

Available at www.damagedgoods.co.uk and www.transdreamer.com

HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS - MY 45; NEW SEVEN INCH: POSTED 14TH OCTOBER 2008

HOLLY GOLIGHTY & THE BROKEOFFS - NEW SPLIT 7": POSTED 11TH JULY 2007


This is a 4 track, split 7” (on clear or purple vinyl) featuring two tracks by Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, who as I’m sure you know by now are the dynamic duo of Holly Golightly and Lawyer Dave and two by The Stratford Sparrows a duo from Portland Oregon in the states.

Here’s what Holly & Dave had to say about their recordings for this single
(which are not on their recently released debut album ‘You Can’t Buy A Gun When You’re Crying’)

“Holly says to an inebriated Lawyer Dave, "Right, we've got to record two songs for
this split with The Stratford Sparrows. Right now."

The Lawyer tried his best to develop the film in his mind with the contaminated
chemicals still left in that dark room some would call a brain. He had spent the day
before "assembling" the two foot cubed box that would be his kick drum for the
upcoming tour and was in fact excited about the prospects of hearing it on tape.

"Alrighty then." saith Dave, "Let's git to it." After a brief reintroduction to the
tunes and a clumsy microphone setup the recording was underway. Shortly
thereafter, it was so.

"Well then, that was an adventure." Holly and Dave said in unison. And then there
was silence.”

The STRATFORD SPARROWS are from Portland, Oregon, started in June of 2006. The Rev. Joe alighted there from San Francisco. After making it though the many trials of life in the City of Roses, he began hearing the sounds of harmony vocals, clean Telecasters, and reverb. He obtained a recording
device and brought it back to the humble Stratford apartments.

He met the fair Miss Bryna in Japanese class and asked her to put her sweet voice to good use. She said yes and the hit making commenced.

Taking inspiration from classic country music, the mighty Willamette River, and the 100 year old building that houses them, the Stratford Sparrows made music all summer long. Rev. Joe called on his friend Holly and a record was born.
Every time Rev. Joe turns a knob or pushes a fader, the sounds in his head are approached.

This is a very special release for all of us here at Damaged Goods and we hope you enjoy it as much as we are right now.

Track Listing:

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs:
A1 I want to hug you, kiss you, squeeze you (til my arms fall off)
A2 No Big Thing

The Stratford Sparrows:
AA1 Why Me Lord?
AA2 The Christian Life

HOLLY'S EBAY AUCTION: POSTED 18TH FEBRUARY 2009

Holly has one of her guitars on Ebay. It's a reluctant sale but time to make some space. Some details below:

"Hofner Verithin 4572(i) Rare Venetian cutaway model with hard case
A fine example of this variation on the Verithin/Model 4574. It is basically a single cutaway Verithin: it has the 1.25" body depth, in the beautiful rich red finish, but only one Venetian cutaway. Fitted with a very stylish tailpiece of "modernistic" design. Produced between 1961 and 1965.
(See: http://www.verithingeoff.110mb.com/
—The Site for Hofner Verithin Guitar Aficionados).

In original and pretty clean shape for its age - no major scuffs or scrapes, except for a filled screw hole on the neck where someone thought it'd be a good idea to fit a strap peg, and one tuning key replaced (both evident in pics).

Plays really well—nice straight neck and low action. Sounds fab too, although the control panel doesn't seem to do what it suggests—the switches are labeled 'Rhythm/Solo', 'Bass' and 'Treble', but I'm not convinced they do 'what it says on the tin'. Also the fact that the volume peaks when the knobs are in the middle seems to suggest that a rewire of the control panel wouldn't go amiss (which I may look into if I get the time). However, this smashing and scarce guitar still works—and looks—a treat.

Also included is a shaped Gibson branded hard case (not shown). A bit tatty, but it does the job."

They take their inspiration from classic country music, the mighty Willamette River, and the 100 year old building
that houses them, theStratford Sparrrows made music all summer long. Rev. Joecalled on his friend Holly and a
record was born."
