efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

Options December 12, 2006: APB plays live!
The Scottish band APB burst onto the post-punk scene back in 1981 with their classic single "(I'd Like To) Shoot You Down," which became an immediate club and college radio hit in New York City and around the country. They continued putting out underground dance hits through the 80s, recording at Arthur Baker and John Robie's Unique Studios as well as right here in Jersey City! Evan "Funk" Davies was playing those early records 25 (gulp!) years ago, and he's excited to welcome APB to the WFMU studios for a great live set!
