Mike Doughty covers “Christmas In Hollis”

Mike Doughty found fame as the frontman for Soul Coughing, releasing a bunch of great records in the mid-'90s before splitting as Y2K approached. Doughty quickly jumped into a solo career, and didn't do much looking back until recently: This year, Doughty revisited his Soul Coughing days by re-recording some of the band's albums solo-style for an album with an incredibly long title. For Holiday Undercover, Doughty grabbed a song that we thought would have been covered here ages ago: Run-DMC's classic "Christmas In Hollis." Doughty has dub plates made for his solo shows, and this one fit the song perfectly. (Check out the interview about "Christmas In Hollis" that we did with DMC last week, too.) Enjoy, and happy holidays.
