Description

Holly Golightly - Good Things

Holly's debut album and it's great, dark and beautiful. What more can we say! Released June 1995.

Holly Golightly (real name) started her musical career as a founder member of all girl garage band Thee Headcoatees, a Billy Childish / Thee Headcoats splinter group in 1991.

She spent four years as a Headcoatee before breaking away to release her debut record, The Good Things, in 1995. Where the Headcoatees sound was a blend of girl group sounds and three-chord garage-rock with all the original songs coming from the pen of Billy Childish, Holly's solo sound is more a blend of pre-rock electric blues, folk rock, and less frantic rock & roll.

Apart from the wide range of covers of such artists as Willie Dixon, Ike Turner, Lee Hazelwood, Wreckless Eric, and Bill Withers, Golightly also writes all her own material.

Holly Golightly is definitely the most interesting and diverse artist to come out of the Billy Childish school and is certainly one of the better singer/songwriters of the post-grunge era who gets better with every album.

Since her debut in 1995, Golightly has been very prolific, releasing 13 long play records and loads of singles for a wide variety of labels as well as touring America eight times as well as Australia & Europe.

Holly's sound has remained remarkably consistent throughout, but each record has a quality that sets it apart from the others. In 1999 she released an album with her friend Billy Childish, on which the two sound like a scuffed-up British version of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood. Another is 'Truly She Is None Other' probably her most successful so far, it also featured the song 'Tell Me Now So I Know' which was picked for the main title theme for Jim Jarmushs movie starring Bill Murray 'Broken Flowers'. There's also a great compilation of all her singles and E.P's called Single's Round-Up. Her latest release is the mid-price sampler 'My First Holly Golightly Album' which is a great way to sample her songs, most of which feature in her live sets.

Over the years Holly has been guest vocalist on various other bands projects, including live with Mudhoney, on a couple of Green Hornes releases and on a couple of Rocket From The Crypt tracks including their hit single 'Lipstick'. After playing several west coast shows with The White Stripes, and supporting them at their some of their London shows, Holly has become good friends with Jack and Meg, recording a duet with them at Toe Rag Studios called It's true that we love one another, for the final track on their classic album 'Elephant' Holly has recently recorded a duet with Mikabomb on the track 'Won't Go Out' (a Holly song) on their new album 'Hellcats' (Damgood 241)

We have also re-issued her second album 'Laugh It Up' (originally released by the now defunct Vinyl Japan) on LP and CD and she is currently recording a brand new album for release in 2007 followed by extensive tours of the UK, Europe and of course the USA.
