Dirt Don't Hurt is the second album resulting from the collaboration between Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs (who are actually just one guy named Lawyer Dave), and like the first it delves deep into the backwoods and back roads of American music.

Holly Golightly's second album with the Brokeoffs (aka Lawyer Dave) retains the antique luster and heartily ramshackle quality of her work but gives her old-timey music a bit more focus. Just a bit: The album's clattery rawness is its chief appeal. Holly Golightly has enough experience not to draw from it. She released her first solo album in 1995, after spending a few years in Thee Headcoatees; since then, she has kept up a steady pace of new material, at least one of these per year: singles comps, odd and ends packages, live shows, and (oh yeah) traditional albums. That rate of production often seems crucial to the palatability of her new old-timey music, preventing her from overthinking her songs or her performances while keeping everything loose and tossed off.
Holly Golightly (born Holly Golightly Smith on 7 September 1966) is a British singer-songwriter. Her mother christened her after the self-antagonist in Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Her musical style ranges from garage rock to R&B. While she was dating Thee Headcoats' drummer Bruce Brand she had an impromptu singing performance with his band. Billy Childish, founder of the Headcoats, added her to the line up of The Delmonas and changed the name to Thee Headcoatees.
