The Big Takeover: Issue 86 MagazineThe Big Takeover
Once again the big news is that Big Takeover #86 Spring 2020 issue is nearly completed from sessions in Brooklyn, NY and Oakland, CA this month! The issue stars ageless Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices on the cover, and features similar fabulous history interviews with David Yow of The Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid, and recently Flipper part 2, Brian James of The Damned and Lords of the New Church, Slumberland Records’ head Mike Schulman celebrating his label’s own 30th Anniversary, and a fascinating remembrance of late ‘70s Cleveland proto-punk legend Peter Laughner with recollections from ex-bandmates Cheetah Chrome, Craig Bell, Tony Maimone, Sue Schmidt and Deborah Smith. We also have multi-page conversations with Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, the band Tennis, and the new KatieJane Garside group, Liar, Flower.
Plus there are shorter chats with Paul Rock of L.A.’s Wild Honey Foundation benefit tribute concerts, Scotland’s Fast Camels, Fleeting Joys, Ethan Gruska, The Claudettes, Bambara, Loveblind, Kiwi Jr., Samira Winter (of her band Winter), and more!
