  • @acedgod, @ electric0ceans - Been a fan for years,but I think the phrase "admire the art, not the artist" applies to Mike. Last time I saw him live, he flipped out on a girl for requesting "No Peace Los Angeles" and told her to leave the show... don't think you can win with this guy no matter what... Still, he writes some pretty quality songs.
  • @electric0ceans lol he blocked me on twitter just because i asked if there's a chance there'd ever be soul coughing vinyl repressings. he's a fucking douche.
  • and i heard he sucked a lot of dick to get famous
  • this guy fucking sucks. he likes to make fun of his fans on air and then "respectfully decline" to apologize. hes from Kentucky so hes prob inbred with no manners anyway :)
  • he should have rerecorded "paint" what a pussy
  • Light Will Keep Your Heart Beating In The Future is great. Not feeling that rap stuff it sounds strange altogether.
  • Not quite sure what to think of Stellar Motel, definately feels a lot different than his older albums.
  • Water and Washington is definitely more palatable to those who prefer Mike's output and it's probably the closest he's come to going back to the sound present on Skittish in quite a long while (live stuff excluded).
  • Agree with JAMOOL although I do like Doughty's new version of St. Louise Is Listening.
  • agreed with below, if you dig Doughty's solo work over SC then you'll probably like this, but Soul Coughing fans should beware that basically everything Steinberg, Gabay, and De Gli Antoni did on those records is totally neutered and replaced with stock samples and drum loops (which already sound about 20 years out of date).
