IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY FOR HOLLY!
First Lady of the Medway garage-punk scene HOLLY GOLIGHTLY returns this week with her first new solo album in eleven years!
Slowtown Now! is out on vinyl, CD and download through Damaged Goods on Friday 21 August, with a limited edition seven-inch of ‘Seven Wonders’ released a week later. You can listen to ‘Seven Wonders’ here.
Holly initially came to prominence at the start of the 90s fronting BILLY CHILDISH and THEE HEADCOATS’ all-girl splinter group THEE HEADCOATEES, Holly released her first solo album in 1995, going on to collaborate with the likes of THE WHITE STRIPES, ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT and THE GREENHORNES and featuring on the soundtrack to the JIM JARMUSCH movie Broken Flowers.
Domiciled in the US for several years, where she’s been playing back-porch blues and Americana with Lawyer Dave as HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS, Holly recently returned to the UK and East London’s Gizzard Studios to record Slowtown Now! with legendary producer Ed Deegan (The Fall, Billy Childish, Stiv Cantarelli) and a band that included Headcoats and LEN BRIGHT COMBO drummer Bruce Brand, NICK LOWE bassist Matt Radford and guitarist/keyboard-player Bradley Burgess.
