Mike Doughty's former band's first release has us split as we revisit the debut album Ruby Vroom by Soul Coughing

Author & Special Guests

Ex-Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty has a new solo record out, so we decided to revisit his former band's first release, 1994's Ruby Vroom. One of us rated this a worthy album, and one of gave it a decent single, so it's fair to say we don't see eye to eye on this album.
