I do indeed.
I first listed to Malkit back in 88 when I went to India - tutak totak tootiyan had just come out and was very popular (for thos who didnt know tootak tootak tootiyan is actually 'toon tak, toon tak, tootiyan' - 'toon' as in you, 'tak' as in see/watch. So basically its same as look at the tootiyan (wihch is a a fruit that grows on a toot tree - anyway enough of that.
You are right Terry. I too had completely ignored Malkit. He's a great singer and has had some very good songs - some of them written by himself. Unfortunately I find it difficult to appreciate all his songs. Overall however he gets my vote - although I still prefer A.S.Kang as number 2.
You are also correct about him being drunk - from all the reports I've heard he seems more interested in having a good time than concentrating on his music!
