    The Book of Drugs

    Mike Doughty has been through just about everything. The rise and fall (and subsequent hatred) of his former band Soul Coughing. The rise of his solo acoustic career. And, oh yeah, drugs. Lots of them. And his recent sobriety. So, why should anyone care? Tim Wardyn went searching for that answer.

    You can’t accuse They Might Be Giants of being slackers. After more than 15 years together, the already-prolific band is releasing a boatload of music, including work on Malcolm in the Middle and their first children’s album. Julio Diaz cornered John Flansburgh during a rare moment off, and got the latest on this extremely talented — and busy! — band.
