Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
Holly Golightly started her musical career as a founding member of all girl garage band Thee Headcoatees, a Billy Childish / Thee Headcoats splinter group in 1991. She spent a good few years as a Headcoatee before making her debut solo 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, soul and less frantic elements of 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 her own material.

Since her debut LP in 1995, Golightly has been very prolific, releasing fifteen albums and a bounty of singles for a wide variety of labels. Holly’s sound has remained remarkably consistent throughout, but each record has a quality that sets it apart from the other releases.

In 1999 Surefire released an LP, In Blood, on which Billy Childish and Holly Golightly sing duets and the two of them celebrate One Chord, One Sound, One Song.
2001’s Desperate Little Town, released on Sympathy for The Record Industry, another collaboration (this time with Dan Melchior) marked a bit of a stylistic diversion as it is a relaxed and mostly acoustic record. In the same year she also collected up all thirteen of her singles and E.P’s onto one double album called Single’s Round-Up.

After playing several shows with The White Stripes, in the USA, and then supporting them at their some of their London shows, Holly has been good friends with Jack and Meg for some time, recording a duet with them ’It’s True That We Love One Another’, for their album Elephant.

Holly has also recorded in the US with The Greenhornes and they released a special Christmas 2002 single together on Damaged Goods called Little Stars. Holly appeared on the Greenhornes album Dual Mono which is out in the States on Telstar. And Holly sings lead vocal on the track ’There’s An End’, which featured as the title track for the film, Broken Flowers.

Over the years Holly has been guest vocalist on various other bands projects, including live with Mudhoney and on several Rocket From The Crypt releases. Her most recent album 2005’s ’Slowly But Surely’ released on Damaged Goods and recorded, as usual, by Liam Watson at ToeRag Studios in London.

There was also a 7", ’Walk A Mile’ taken from the album, with an exclusive b-side Don’t Fuck Around With Love featuring the ever wonderful Sexton Ming.
Palmyra Delran
Palmyra Delran
Packing more rock savvy than most members of the alterna-rock Boy’s Club and more melody than her Riot Grrrl counterparts, the rhythms and riffs of Palmyra Delran’s songs stand out in the punk rock landscape. Wielding her guitar like a carving knife and using her voice as the most potent of spices, she sprinkles her music liberally with powerful rhythms and textures, garnishing it with sugary melodies and acerbic lyrics.

As the founder, songwriter and creative soul of “trashy pop band” The Friggs, Palmyra built a working model for the ideal punk girl group. They released debut CD "Rock Candy" and singles collection "Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday", toured incessantly throughout the ‘90s, opening for the Selecter, the Ramones, Cheap Trick among others, and were included in the movies "Superbad", "Jawbreaker", "Lipstick & Dynamite", and "Prey for Rock & Roll".

On her 2008 solo debut EP titled "She Digs the Ride", Palmyra flirts with charm, surf rock, dysfunctional relationships, and solid guitar grooves. Her song "Baby Should Have Known Better" was picked by Little Steven as the "Coolest Song in the World" in November '08, then voted "Coolest Song of 2008" by Underground Garage listeners.

2011 will begin with Palmyra on a tour of Scandinavia with Stupidity (Sweden), & the Cocktail Slippers (Norway). Her new digital single "Lies For You" is a sample of what to expect on the next full length Palmyra Delran CD "You Are What You Absorb" due out later in the year.
In the last days of 2005 Stupidity was formed in Stockholm, Sweden by former members from the bands Eager Beaver and The Cool Jerks. They took the name "Stupidity" from the great Solomon Burke song, a common favourite of them all. The bands first recording was a four song demo in september 2006 and they also played their first gig in november the same year. In February - March 2007 they started recording new songs and doing a number of gigs.

In April-June 2007 they went back into the studio and recorded the rest of the songs for the coming album. The album titled "I need you...like a hole in my head" is available to buy here: www.stupidity.se In June 2008 Stupidity toured the USA for two weeks, doing shows and radio in three states.

After the tour Stupidity was discovered by Little Steven Van Zandt (from Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band & The Sopranos) who in August named their song “Girl Named Moe” the coolest song in the world on his radio channel The Underground Garage. The second album "Illegal U-Turn" was released in June 2009, the band backed it up with shows in Europe and the USA.

The latest album "Move" came out in June 2011, and it was followed by shows in Scandinavia and a US-tour.

In October 2013 Stupidity released the latest single "King Midas / "Some Kinda Love" the first one from the new album coming in 2014. The single became "Coolest Song In The World" on Little Steven's Underground Garage December 8th 2013.

It was also be featured on the soundtrack to Series 2 of the TV Series Lilyhammer starring Steven Van Zandt, that started screening on Netflix and local channels from December 13th 2013.

Thee Minks
Thee Minks
Timeless rock and roll riffs, melodies and energy describe Philly all-girl garage trio Thee Minks. Channeling Iggy and The Stooges as much as The Runaways, their live set finds guitarist Hope Diamond, bassist Liz Lixx and drummer Veronica Beats pogoing around the room to stories of back-alley hook-ups, Jack Daniels and chumps that don’t deserve their attention. The fuzz pedals boom and the rhythms rush, making this an ideal band when you’re looking for the music to be loud and the energy to be high.
