The Big TakeOver Zine #5 Scan (Classic NYC Hardcore/Punk Zine)

Here's a scan of issue #5 of The Big TakeOver, the small photocopied punk zine from the early 80's that still exists in the incarnation of a glossy indie rock magazine. Lots of cool insight into the transition period in NYC between Punk Rock kind of dying out and Hardcore becoming more popular. On the back page there's a short review of a Stimulators/Bad Brains show at The Peppermint Lounge in NY, and the author bitches about fake tough guys acting hard and "attempts to turn the dancefloor into the mess that it is in L.A". Haha.
