4 minutes to save the world

Les dj's du collectif Buffet Libre m'ont sollicité pour leur dernier mix consacré aux années 80 (époque fantasmée où les Marseillais savaient un peu mieux voter) en me demandant comme à d'autres blogueurs un titre dansant de cette décennie.
"Blue Monday" ou "Pump up the volume" s'imposaient mais au final le choix d'un titre moins connu l'a emporté avec le semi tube du meilleur (seul ?) groupe de punk-funk qu'Aberdeen ait jamais enfanté.

APB "Shoot you down"

Et comme le mix participatif de ces Espagnols (qui joueront à Paris à La Scala le 28 Mars) regorge de bien d'autres pépites à (re)découvrir, le voilà en deux parties.

Here's a eighties mix made by Spanish dj's Buffet Libre who kindly asked bloggers from all over the world to pick a song for their selection.
My choice would have been "Blue monday" or "Pump up the volume" but I finally suggested "Shoot you down" from Scottish band APB, one of the best kept secrets of the post punk era.

Good call. I remember buying the APB 7" in the local independent record shop after hearing it on John Peel.
