Smashed TV

Almost since rock'n'roll began it has inspired bad behavior. Using one of the most famous examples of rock star excess - like hurling a TV from a hotel room window - we're implying that Marshall Music sells more than just gear, they sell attitude.

dog pee, people constantly running into the art piece, dossers taking away parts and leaving their empty bottles of bum wine in return...
that's rock'n'roll!!
