^ Thanks. That was really interesting.
Is English punk especially impossible? That first Clash record makes almost no sense to me and I'm guessing Strummer's singing is just a blur of sounds to you.
On the other hand, I'm wondering if Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave are somewhat easy? Not sure why I picked them. They seem pretty articulate to me, I guess.
I should point out both SK singers are sometimes hard to understand for most people.
I think S-K's lyrics are important to appreciating them fully. But they also fucking rock, and that's very important as well. This Lallapalooza show from '06 is a fine example.
