Mike Doughty

Before emerging as a solo artist, Mike Doughty (known as M. Doughty during the early stages of his career) was best known as the frontman of the unique avant-garde group Soul Coughing. Formed in 1992, Soul Coughing took shape after Doughty met Yuval Gabay, Sebastian Steinberg, and Mark de Gli Antoni while working as a doorman at the Knitting Factory, a staple of New York City's underground music scene. The four musicians signed with Slash/Warner Bros. in 1993 after making a name for themselves on the local scene with a fusion of rock, Doughty's beatnik-inspired lyrics, and elements of hip-hop and electronic music. Releasing their first of three albums the following year, Soul Coughing enjoyed only moderate commercial success over the next six years with the singles "Super Bon Bon" and "Circles." However, their unclassifiable style kept them apart from the mainstream, which became beneficial as the initial boom of alternative rock in the early '90s subsided considerably.

In March 2000, the members of Soul Coughing split up to work on their own side projects. Shortly after the breakup, Doughty -- who had been writing as a columnist for New York Press on the side -- embarked on a solo acoustic tour, playing material from a then-unreleased solo album recorded in 1995 entitled Skittish. After bootleg copies of the album surfaced on the file-sharing network Napster, Doughty released an official version of Skittish on his website in October 2000. A stripped-down acoustic effort, Skittish featured some of Doughty's most direct and personal lyrics, accompanied by his signature, syncopated guitar-playing style.

In addition to overcoming drug addiction and beginning work on a second solo album, Doughty continued to do solo tours and was heard contributing vocals to BT's club hit "Never Gonna Come Back Down," and collaborating with John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants for a CD that accompanied an issue of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern. He also composed the soundtrack to a trailer for New York City's Gen Art Film Festival.

In July 2002, Doughty released the limited-edition live album Smofe + Smang: Live in Minneapolis. It featured a large selection of solo material as well as Soul Coughing classics. A book of poetry entitled Slanky, which was initially self-released in 1995, also coincided with the live album. In 2003, more solo work surfaced in the form of the Rockity Roll EP, which was then combined with the Skittish album and re-released with a handful of bonus tracks when Doughty signed to ATO Records in 2004. In 2005, Doughty released his first solo effort to feature a band, Haughty Melodic, which contained fleshed-out studio versions of several songs debuted on Smofe + Smang, and 2008's Golden Delicious followed suit. The latter album cracked the Billboard 100, Doughty's first solo release to do so, and he quickly returned in 2009 with another record, Sad Man Happy Man. In 2011, he released the full-length Yes and Also Yes on his own Snack Bar label. In 2012, Doughty released a second book,The Book of Drugs, a memoir about his life with Soul Coughing and his struggles with addiction, as well as the live album The Question Jar Show, and The Flip Is Another Honey, which featured Doughty covering artists from Thin Lizzy to Randy Newman. Hip-hop producer Good Goose helped Doughty revamp a set of Soul Coughing material following a successful spring 2013 PledgeMusic campaign which helped him raise funds for the sessions. The lengthily titled release, named after every track that appears on the album, was released in September of that year. ~ Lee Meyer, Rovi

Love the Dought-ster! Going to see him in DC tonight at the 9:30 Club & I'm so excited! I might have to bust up a Starbucks on the way ;)
Mike Doughty is one stand up fella. His music gets better and better every year.
I saw M. Doughty at the Canopy Club in Champaign. He opened for some band that I was not to impressed with so my buddy and I split during the headlining act. Lo and behold Mike Doughty was hanging right outside the club. He talked with us for about 10 minutes. Great guy! He told us he was going back on to do some songs with the headliner. We had to sneak back in. Great night, great guy, great music. Thanks Mike!
I miss them most.
was anyone a fan of the show "Homicide"? Scene where Andre Braugher (Frank Pembleton) is walking and Super Bon Bon is playing. Simply perfect!
Once saw Soul Coughing 4 straight nights here in MPLS. Good times...

Wow awesome to discover solo Doughty,he's always been a big inspiration & motivational artist from my perspective. Thank you for rocking my melon into rebellin
Yeah, that should probably say "...Mike Doughty (known as M. Doughty during the early stages of his career)..."
Very cool. One of those unmistakable voices. Wish there were more artists like him.

Also:
"...Mike Doughty (known as Mike Doughty during the early stages of his career).." (from the summary up there)
Uhm, what?
he's one of my all time favorite artists & one of those actually nice human beings! i've been fortunate to cross paths on the street - literally - i ran into him on the U of MN campus years ago (Soul Coughing era) - his mom used to play in the MN Orchestra & i've meet her several times. YAY M DOUGHTY!!
doomiedoom
I had no idea he did any solo work, Im really loving it. american car is a beautiful song...
I can't think of a better topic to sing about than girls - though I think MD sings about a lot more than that. One of my favorite artists.
he is totally awesome live. I saw him when he was opening for BNL and got an autographed cd. Nice guy, very talented songwriter. His songs are instantly memorable and hummable.

he's a crybaby who kicks people out of his shows regularly (for talking) and he sings too many songs about girls.
All hail King Mike. Spectacular! Anyone who doesn't know his music needs to check it out. But make sure and listen closely to the words. They are Mike's true contribution to the music world. Best artist ever!
M. Doughty is a god among men.....
