The Big Takeover is in the minority of 80’s fanzines that survived the purge of print media over the last 20 or so years. Still operating online and as a bi-annual publication, the fanzine was founded and is still run by musician, radio host and DJ Jack Rabid. This early issue features the summary of Rabid’s exchange with Rockpool readers after a letter of his was printed as an editorial, and a slew of show and record reviews of bands like the Damned, Suicide, Salem 66 and Toxic Reasons.
