First up: Jack Rabid

Production gets underway this Saturday in New York, and our very first interview is with none other than Jack Rabid, publisher of The Big Takeover for the past twenty-five years. Along with seeing the Mats “a few dozen times,” Jack deejayed their very first New York gig at the long-defunct Great Gildersleeves (Also on the bill? Fellow Minnesotans, Hüsker Dü, as well as future Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz and his band, Young and Useless). In Jack’s own words: “Used to help drink their rider with them before sound check from 83-85 before it got harder to get backstage. Good guys for sure, but boy, could they put em away. I used to drink one to their five.” Should be a good interview.
