A.P.B. on CIUT tonight

With the recent vinyl release of the “T.O. Hardcore ‘83” comp there has been a rediscovery of an important part of Toronto’s punk past. The first band found on this comp is a little known band from Scarborough called A.P.B. I convinced the members of A.P.B. who were Andy Ford, Paul Newman and Buzz to come in to CIUT and tell their stories. Some of these stories are as far out there as a chance meeting with the 80’s rock band Journey that got Andy kicked out of the band’s hotel room.  They also shared stories of discrimination towards punks back in the 80’s in which the band gets guns pulled on them by Brinks drivers at the Morningside Mall. A.P.B. played with MDC in Buffalo at a Rock Against Reagan show. They played with the Exploited in 1983. They share all kinds of memories of the Toronto hardcore scene back at it’s inception. Tune in Sunday at 10:00pm for this exclusive interview and some unreleased recordings by the band.
