Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs / Bio

Holly Golightly and Lawyer Dave first met in the basement of a China Town smuggler's den. Holly had need for an upright bass player to do a small U.S. tour and The Lawyer was the only one she could find. After a half hour run-through, they were off the next day. You might could say that this was the beginning of their collaboration as the idea of doing records together was first conceived on those long drives in the American West. After nearly ten years, seven-hundred-thousand miles, countless shows and other misadventures, the time finally came. In January of 2007 the two built a make-shift studio in the Southern English countryside to make the record they had talked so much about. With only 4 days to write, record and mix in, the pair couldn't have neen be happier with the result. Supposed to be a low key release,"You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying" (Damaged Goods) quickly snowballed into a beautiful monster that scared up enough attention for the two to make an entire year's touring out of it... .. In 2008, Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs have recorded a second offering, 'Dirt Don't Hurt', released in October. This particular project was recorded in the middle of a 50 date tour during the only break they had. That week found them in Gijon, Spain on the Northern coast. They had chosen 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 they spent the last one, so it may seem a little over produced to some!
