Sadly, after a bitter breakup and Doughty's decision to get clean, he resigned himself in later years to writing formulaic, homogenous coffeehouse pop which is enjoyable only until you realize that he's written the same exact song 30 or 40 times.

Sorry Mike, we liked you better on the drugs.

And while Doughty is opposed to looking back upon his career with the band, Slash Records was kind enough to issue Ruby Vroom and the rest of the SC catalog on vinyl. I wasted not a moment's hesitation and ordered the entire set the day it was announced.

In my mind, it will forever be 1998, in the 5 percent nation of chocolatey delicious.
