From the Basement | Beastie Boys On "The Scott & Gary Show"

On January 29, 1984 Scott Lewis and Gary Winter hosted their second ever public access television show "The Scott & Gary Show" in New York. On that particular edition of their show a very young group of talented lads (and a lady) appeared. As Scott Lewis explains, he had just seen them open for the Dead Kennedys and the audience seemed to take a liking to them - so why not introduce them to the public-access-television-watching world. They were Michael, Adam, Adam and Kate and they called themselves Beastie Boys. Kate was Kate Schellenbach, punk rock drummer for alt, indie and punk bands like Luscious Jackson and the Lunachicks. As for Mike, Adam and Adam, well, I think we know what became of them.
