Uprhythm, Downbeat is the third album from punk rock band The Members. It includes one of the band's most successful singles in the U.S., "Working Girl", and the single "Radio", which was a major chart hit in Australia.[2] Although it was released in 1982 in the United States, the record was unavailable in the bands' native Britain until 1983, when it was released as Going West by Albion Records.
