From The Stacks: The Members-Going West (Dub Version)

Members Going West frontFirst wave punk rockers The Members wrapped up the first iteration of their career with 1982’s Uprhythm Downbeat, which was released in the UK the following year as Going West.  Whatever you call it, the album sported two of the band’s biggest hits: “Working Girl” (a US hit) and “Radio” (an Australian hit). Both are cool, but your Members collection isn’t complete without this 12″ version of the UK title cut.

I’d rock it for you, but my copy is sealed and it’s going to stay that way. I asked original and current Member JC Carroll about this version, though, and it gets his seal of approval thanks to solid guitars and keys.

So what can you expect to pay for this UK import? If you can find one it trades in the 5-10 dollar range, but I have a better use for those dollars: The Members are going to be touring the United States for the first time in 30 years this August and September. How cool is that? Check out the tour dates here.
