Album Review

Holly Golightly's solo debut is quite a departure from her usual gig as a member of the garage-rocking, Billy Childish-sponsored group Thee Headcoatees. But for a couple of tracks, Golightly and Thee Headcoatees drummer Bruce Brand create a low-key and introspective musical mood. The overall sound is still raw and live, but the tempos and performances are relaxed. Golightly's voice is very intimate and conversational. She sounds especially good when she harmonizes with herself to create a girl group sound. The songs she wrote are filled with wit and verve and not a little anger. The title track is a classic "you hurt me, you suck" type of song; in fact, most of the songs here are. It is a real broken-hearted breakup record. And Golightly has the good sense to cover a Wreckless Eric song, "Comedy Time." Good Things is a strong debut that definitely points the way to good things to come from Holly Golightly.

Customer Reviews

Great album.

Varied song style, excellent lyrics, driving guitars. It's a great album to get drunk and blare on your stereo.

well.....

some of the songs aren't that bad... but none of the songs are something worth putting on my ipod

Biography

Born: September 7, 1966 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Holly Golightly joined the Billy Childish auxiliary group Thee Headcoatees in 1991 when her boyfriend, Bruce Brand (Thee Headcoatees' drummer), invited her to a gig and she ended up singing. She spent four years with Thee Headcoatees before releasing her debut record, The Good Things, in 1995. Whereas Thee Headcoatees' sound was a blend of girl group pop and three-chord garage rock with all the original songs coming from the pen of Billy Childish, Golightly's solo sound is more a blend of pre-rock...
