Don’t. Just don’t. This is not a theatre. We are not here to give you a concert. We play no instruments. We only sing because we want to get laid. Just like you with your guitar. Admit it. We don’t need any applause nor do we care what you think about the sounds. “It’s music to my ears.” Right. It’s like a foreign language that you don’t even know is a language until you are told. Let’s take for example Chinese in which anything can mean anything depending on the tones. Now, let’s say that it has 164 consonants most of which is clicking and popping sounds, like in the Africann Taa language. What would you make out of the Silebo Gomero that’s spoken in the Canary Islands? They’ve used whistling for communicating in a huge complexity over long distances. Just like us. Or would you know you are listening to a language if you heard Sentinelese, a language on an isolated island on the Indian Ocean that no foreigner has ever stepped onto? Why I’m saying this I don’t really know. You may clap now. We have to go.
