Problem with punk-folk is very much the same as the problem with punk. and folk. As in, there are a few originators - in this case, The Pogues would be the obvious ones, and many, many less talented follow-ons, taking one aspect of the original and focusing on it, but without the talent to make it interesting. Hence there being many hundred Pogues copy-acts, but them only focusing on SPEED and GRAVELLY voice, which was only a tiny part of The Pogues.

Not a huge point in naming names, but there's dozens of such acts in the US right now, a few of them very successful indeed.
