There is an end - the greenhornes with holly golightly

Holly Golightly (born Holly Golightly Smith, 1966, London)[1][2] 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.[1][3] For her solo career, she draws from rhythm and blues, rockabilly, and sounds of the 1960s or earlier.[1][3] 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.[1]
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.[2] She is also a collector of rare old songs which she often covers.[2]
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.[1] 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..."
