Mike Doughty, who was in town last night to talk about his life and the autobiographical The Book of Drugs, was once the leader of Soul Coughing, the New York-based art rock band that found MTV-ish success with "Super Bon Bon." Which is a song he will never, ever play again, he told Bree Davies.
And that's a shame, says one fan.

It sucks that he has absolutely shunned any and all Soul Coughing songs from his sets. I get that it was a rough time in his life, but some of those songs are among my favorite songs of ALL TIME. I like the solo stuff too (except for the "popped-out" crap like "Bottom of a Well"). Oh well... I wonder if he'd still play "Train to Chicago" or "World of Suck".
Look for more on Mike Doughty on Show and Tell later today.
