Post #111.5: Mike Doughty - "Looking at the World from the Bottom of a Well"



Post #111.5: I first became a fan of Mike Doughty during the 90's when he fronted the band Soul Coughing and went by just "M. Doughty".

If you are not familiar with Soul Coughing, I will post them at some point.

Unfortunately, they broke up in 2000 partly due to Doughty's heroin addiction. Thankfully he kicked it and went on to release 5 solo albums and a few EPs.

This is the opening track off of Haughty Melodic, released in 2005. This was his first album featuring a full band and was produced by Dan Wilson, the former front man of the Minneapolis group Semisonic. At some point I will be posting Dan as well.

They have continued to work together which has caused Doughty to spend a lot of time in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, I have not had the pleasure of running into him....yet.
