Paladasiac, if that's a ruined voice, I don't want to hear an intact one.

I wish I had known his music ages ago. I've only been getting caught up in the last few years. So much to him - he's one of my new favourites.

The voice of everyman, if everyman where hanging out on the wharves singing to sailers, prostitutes, petty thieves and lowlife bar crawlers. A voice that only a one-eyed meth addicted street walker could love but one hell of a lyricist. There's a short list of voices that just suck but they're music is indespensable...Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, David Johansen, early David Byrne...there's a true difference between a great voice and a great rock 'n' roll voice. This is one example. Start with Rain Dogs, Swordfishtrombones, Big Time.
