Mike Doughty (then known as M. Doughty), first came to prominence with his innovative, funky, poetic band Soul Coughing, whose debut Ruby Vroom remains a visceral '90s signifier, and whose subsequent albums, "El Oso" and "Irresistible Bliss" yielded two hit singles, "Super Bon Bon" and "Circles". By 2000, frustrated with the band and increasingly addicted to hard drugs and alcohol, Doughty disbanded Soul Coughing. A solo career followed and Doughty, via incessant international touring, grew a dedicated fan base, though his drug and alcohol problem spiraled out of control. Hitting bottom and finally fully recovering through the 12-step program, Doughty has been happily committed to sobriety for more than five years and since signed with ATO records and played before tens of thousands of fans, whether opening for the Dave Matthews Band at MSG or rocking the mainstage and the Bonnaroo festival. "The Book of Drugs" tells, in candid, self-deprecating, hilarious, and harrowing detail just how Doughty got in and out of his addictions. In the style of Jeannette Walls' "The Glass Castle", it will consist of many short vignettes, all featuring drug use, or the pointed lack of it, as a central point around which the story revolves. "The Book of Drugs" will also feature cameos from Dave Matthews, the late Jeff Buckley, Redman, Ani DiFranco, and other indie rock icons.
