Do The Get Along features 12 songs performed by the perfect Holly Golightly band line-up of Bruce Brand (drums), Matt Radford (double bass), Ed Deegan (guitar) and Bradley Burgess (guitar). Alongide nine original tracks there are three choice covers – ‘Satan is His Name’ by Steve King & The Echelons, ‘Love (Can’t You Hear Me)’ by the Knight Bros., and ‘I Don’t Know’, originally recorded by Ruth Brown.
Holly first came to musical prominence as a member of Thee Headcoatees, a Billy Childish/Thee Headcoats all-girl splinter group in 1991. Four years later she broke away from the garage punk scene with the release of her debut solo album The Good Things, which featured a mix of folk, early electric blues, & ’60s beat influenced rock ‘n’ roll.
It’s a template that she’s honed over the course of 12 solo albums, along the way impressing celebrity fans such as Jim Jarmusch (Holly’s track ‘Tell Me Now So I Know’ featured as the main title theme in his Broken Flowers movie), and most notably Jack White who duetted with Holly on ‘It’s True That We Love One Another’, the final track on the classic White Stripes album Elephant.
