Woah, this is pretty sharp. Taxi have a definite 70s punk influence going on, though for whatever reason I'm also reminded of the Hellacopters circa Payin' The Dues. Side A is essentially a pumped-up version of the twelve bar blues, played with enough roaring gusto to help you forget how many times you've heard those same darn chords while the deal is cemented with glorious vocal hooks and a couple of simple three-note guitar lines by way of solos. Down By Love is more of the same, just lacking the title track's ability to truly really smash its way into your head despite giving it a damn good go. Ace little 7" - thoroughly rocking and thoroughly recommended.
