Logo #77: Soul Coughing
Drawn by rightly lauded and applauded graphic blandisher Jim Woodring for Soul Coughing's final album, 1998's, "El Oso." Frontman Mike Doughty once described what the band was all about by calling it "deep slacker jazz" - which is about as fair an estimation as any other that we lameoid rock journalists have ever foisted upon the public consciousness at large. Here's Soul Coughing's best song, the endlessly remixed single "Super Bon Bon," playing behind a bunch of footage from "The Crow." Not that there's anything inherently wrong with "The Crow," but we all know that YouTube, the greatest jukebox on Earth, is basically there to play old good songs in the background while you're working on other things.
