Taxi Violence
Forget about those skinny jeans wearing scenesters. Taxi Violence has. Their mission is real rock ’n roll. We talk to the 2008 SAMA nominees about their albums that made them want to run away and join the rock ‘n roll circus and find out why they’ll be fed up if Parlotones win the Rock SAMA.

Linda Mali
