Miss Golightly!

Exciting news for anyone needing a Holly Golightly fix! A new studio album is in store, the first since 2004's Slowly But Surely, and this time it's a collaboration between Holly and Lawyer Dave (who're calling themselves The Brokeoffs when listed as a duo). The Brokeoffs spent the start of the new year recording an LP called You Can't Buy a Gun When You're Crying, and according to the band's My Space page, the record will be released on Damaged Goods at the end of March.

Additionally, Ms. Golightly and Mr. Dave themselves will be making US appearances in support of the album this March. Sadly, the shows will only take place around the northeastern corner of the country, though any updates will get posted.

In good timing, March will also see releases from fellow Damaged Goods artists Fabienne Del Sol and Golightly mentor Billy Childish, leading Buff Medways successors the Musicians of the British Empire.
