“Super Bon Bon” by Soul Coughing (1996)

24 01 2009

Soul Coughing didn’t put out many albums, but the ones they made are fantastic.  I hadn’t heard anything like it before.

I absolutely love the double (acoustic) bass, brilliantly shadow-boxing the nimble, dry, “funkalicious” drums.  They found and elegantly weaved an amazing array of audio samples into the mix.  And who can resist the beat-poetic words and delivery of Mike Doughty?

If I had the talent to play in the majors, I would have loved to have played with a band like Soul Coughing.
