What the press said
“… Rusti starts pumping some of the raw, unmixed tracks. The songs have the urgency of Queens of the Stone Age, the glam of modern Black Keys, and here and there a thunderous Marilyn Manson-like bass line that will scare the shit out of you. Actually, forget those aforementioned references, this is fresh, high octane Taxi Violence at its best.” – Rolling Stone Magazine (May 2013)
“It’s clear from the outset, before we even have a listen to the new tracks, that this is a no bullshit record. They sound to me like the Taxi Violence I fell in love with when I was a teenager.” – Karl Kemp (SA Music Scene)
