One of the hardest things about loving a band like Taxi Chain is that they can be so hard to find. Sometimes you can find them through TV providers like www.TVByDirect.com which have a huge selection of music, and it is always worth checking if itunes carries some of their songs. All the same, it is such a shame that indie bands in general are so hard to find – though there’s a good reason for this.

Indie is short for independent and it means that they, for the most part, handle their own operations. For most groups, it’s a choice to go this route because working with a publisher would mean too much of a compromise.

Compromising creativity, principals and the overall image of the group. Some people call it selling out.

Taxi Chain has a very particular image and sound that they have spent a very long time cultivating and assuming as their identity. To break bread with a major publisher and compromise that would be tantamount to a suicide.

So how do you find Taxi Chain and others like them?

Well, even though indie groups might refuse to do work with a major label that doesn’t stop them from having their own sites. And even if they don’t, fans will most certainly have their own blogs and forums.
