Soul Coughing Frontman Mike Doughty Releases Circles, An Album Of the Band’s Songs As He Meant Them To Be

Former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty has released “Circles,” an album of the band’s songs as he “meant them to be.” He writes, “My favorite songs on the album are the ones that, when I wrote them, I envisioned as club bangers — I’ve finally gotten to make them into what I heard in my head. I spent a lot of time in the ’90s in dance clubs — house, hip hop, and techno music in New York in the early ’90s, big beat and drum and bass in London in the mid-’90s. I wrote melodies on the dance floor, singing snippets of lyrics to myself, then went home and wrote them down as the drugs were wearing off.” He says, “some are pop songs; in general, they’re bigger, heavier, cleaner, funkier, more streamlined than the originals.” The album is available at iTunes, Amazon, direct from Doughty, and at local record stores.

Nerdcore artist MC Frontalot makes a cameo in the music video for Doughty’s version of hit song “Super Bon Bon.” Doughty is currently on tour in the United States.
