The 5 Percent Nation of Chocolaty Delicious: It comes down to THIS!

The long-awaited and much-anticipated Soul Coughing 180g vinyl issues have arrived!

MusicDirect lists the official ship date as 08-31-15 for the Sept street date but pre-orders shipped in advance from their Chicago distribution center and arrived at my door in NY this morning.

If you missed the pre-order and still want to grab these for your collection, each of their albums are still available at the regular price from MusicDirect here.

This is the very first time Ruby Vroom has ever been made available in a vinyl format. If you’re a fan (or if you had a pulse in the 90s) this is the time to claim some SC love for your own.

“And it booms as cool as sugar free jazz”

All my SC promos CDs and cassettes are packed for the move at present, but I’m enjoying digging through my archive of live shows and radio sessions this evening.  And The Rev 105’s Moonlight Meditations program featured a unique look at M Doughty’s poetry in 1996.

Highlights from Soul Coughing and Mike Doughty’s live material

There are currently 126 solo shows available for free at Archive.org.  The site also hosts the 23 known live recordings of Soul Coughing.  This weekend will be a great opportunity to complete my own archive of all things from the Soul Coughing Underground.

Happy Friday everyone!
