"Before the Bad Brains, before the Police & even before the Specials, the Members were playing punk & reggae to stump the masses. I've loved the Members for many many years, but this is the first time I've seen video footage of them...wait... I take that back, I've actually watched, "Urgh! a Music War" when I was a little kid, but back then the only thing that mattered to me was the Oingo Boingo footage.
Rico Rodriguez guests on the album version of, "Offshore Banking Business". I love it."
As I've never been interested in The Members I don't have their records with Rico and can't definitely say if he's on or off the single versions. If he's on the album version, it must be The Members first album At The Chelsea Nightclub?! That one is re-released with the single tracks, 7 and 12" versions and Rico is on at least the 12". - Braunov
