Everyone knows the track 'Working Girl' right? Ok, some of us do. What I found odd was that it charted on the Billboard Rock charts at number 34 back in March of 1983, but never crossed over to the Hot 100 charts. I used to hear it on the radio quite frequently back in the day and automatically assumed it was a Top 40. Just goes to show...perception and reality.
Anywho, here is the reissue version of their 1983 LP 'Going West'. It has also been previously released as 'Uprhythm Downbeat' back in 1982, so it had been around for quite a while, giving the 'Working Girl' track plenty of time to develop as a hit. What's really a rush is that most UK folk will recall when the band was punk, just as punk was beginning to fade. The bands punk hit 'The Sound Of The Suburbs' made waves throughout the UK, but never reached the US. It wasn't until MTV began that The Members would reach the US with the track 'Working' Girl'.
All recording and art are taken from my import release. Enjoy!
