I always wanted to get the album from this band. I remember the single "working girl" or maybe it was "I'm in love with a working girl" that MTV played alot. I had the single for a while and then lost it. Can anyone help me? I imagine the band was British.

Sorry, I goofed! I just happened to check the track listing and Going West does NOT contain "Offshore Banking Business"! Sorry about that, I have my Members CD's mixed up. You'll probably like the album but I like the Members compilation "At The 1980 C
