seriously, that band was the shit. it was the band' whole mindset and their circumstances that made them so unique, i think. i like a lot of doughty's solo stuff aswell though. it's so great mike is cool with playing SC tunes again, considering the bands' breakup and animosities. My favs are casiotone nation and the early version of "the incumbent".
It is amazing that in a 'Reunion' era, one of the best rock bands of the nineties have yet to decide to make their come back. I want a Soul Coughing reunion and I want it now. But just read vividserenity comment and now my hopes are even lowered.
https://pastebin.com/xX0kcZ84 - here's a list of track titles in my unsorted b-sides folder, alongside some links i've had bookmarked relating to more obscure tracks; it's unorganized to all buggery, so you'll have to do some navigation on your own (forgive me padre)
I really love Soul Coughing. Mike's more recent stuff is good, but it just gets me itching for more Soul Coughing. Anyone have some recommendations for similar 90s alt rock/jazzy stuff like this? This is one of the only times Last.fm's similar artists tab has failed me. If you have anything to share, leave me a shout or private message. I appreciate it. :)
I'd have to say that El Oso is definitely their best work, and is even better than Mike Doughty's solo stuff. But Mike Doughty's solo career is also way better than everything else Soul Coughing produced. Needless to say, El Oso is where it's at!
One of the best bands ever, obviously. It's a shame they had to squabble about money and who wrote what. Especially as El Oso was a bit of a let down compared to the debut and sophomore albums. Would have been nice to see them go onwards and upwards. Oh well.
Glad to see Mike Doughty is still thriving. Ruby Vroom-one of the best albums of the '90's; remember playing "ghosts and gouls " for Sega genesis(not a gamer!), played the album and game simo, synced up nicely, like wizard of oz and dark side!!!
