Sometimes I don't consider some bands for this site because I feel they are too well known. Many times I am wrong. I'm sure most of you have heard Aberdeen, Scotland's APB. Then again, maybe not. They were very popular in the New York City area due to airplay on the legendary WLIR and "Screamer" status for the song "Shoot You Down". There was a lot of college radio support as well. They never got beyond that in the U.S. APB began recording singles filled with intense, funky bass and wiry guitar in 1981 and a compilation of those singles was released four years later called "Something to Believe In" (Red River, 1985). Their first full-length album, Cure for the Blues, was released the following year, and in 1986, the band released their last recording, a four-track EP "Missing You Already". In 1996 "Something to Believe In" was released on CD along with some bonus tracks and quickly fell out of print. It once had been listed for sale on Amazon for $2500.00. Currently it goes for $119.00
