There is an end - the greenhornes with holly golightly
Holly Golightly (born Holly Golightly Smith, 1966, London) is a British singer-songwriter. She was the girlfriend of The Headcoats' drummer Bruce Brand, and after an impromptu singing performance joined the all-girl garage band Thee Headcoatees, staying with the band for four years until 1995. For her solo career, she draws from rhythm and blues, rockabilly, and sounds of the 1960s or earlier. She has released thirteen studio albums of her own and has collaborated with other artists, such as Billy Childish, Rocket from the Crypt and The White Stripes.
She performed two songs on the soundtrack of the movie Broken Flowers: "There Is an End (Featuring Holly Golightly)" by The Greenhornes & Holly Golightly (which can also be found on the Greenhornes' album Dual Mono), and "Tell Me Now So I Know" by Holly Golightly (found on the album Truly She Is None Other), which is a song originally written by English singer/songwriter Ray Davies of The Kinks. She is also a collector of rare old songs which she often covers.
Most recently, Holly has teamed up to form a duo, recording and touring extensively with her long time bandmate Lawyer Dave. As Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs, they have released three albums to date, You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying in 2007, Dirt Don't Hurt in 2008 and Medicine County in 2010. You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying was inspired by comedian Lord Carrett's joke "I learned a lot from my second marriage... I learned they won't sell you a hand gun if you're crying..."
