Mike Doughty met Kyle Meredith to talk about his new project, Ghost of Vroom, with the sound coming back to his 90s band Coughing of the Soul. Doughty told us the roots of the project that followed his efforts to unite the band before the talks broke down and how the name remembered Soul Coughing’s debut album Ruby Vroom. He goes on to talk about his expertise for injecting jazz into a sample-based, bizarre music, the poem that gave him his style, 25th anniversary of Uncontrollable Joy (featuring “Super Bon Bon”), and his plans for an apocalyptic rock operative.
