The Big TakeOver Zine #3 Scan (Classic NYC Hardcore/Punk Zine)

I found 4 of these at Reckless Records in Wicker Park. They appear to be originals. I scooped them up for a dollar apiece.These are The Big TakeOver's humble beginnings, a far cry from the indie hipster magazine it has turned into now. It's a cool snapshot of time in the early 80's New York scene....interesting reference to Harley Flanagan in his days as the 14 year old drummer of the punk/power pop band The Stimulators. Their song "Loud Fast Rules" is really good....easily the most memorable of their tunes. The guy who did this zine, Jack Rabid, was kind of like a super fan of theirs and wrote about them constantly. Anyways, I'll be scanning the rest of these soon.
