Members of Punk-Reggae Wedding Claim Not Always Bridesmaids

Richard Riegel, Creem, May 1983

WE'RE DOWN in Bogart's new dressing room, a concrete-block bunker beneath the stage, and as I retrieve a Budweiser from the tub on the amenities table, it seems that I'm surrounded by at least eighteen British eyeballs, observant if friendly. The Members are in Cincinnati tonight, to play the first U.S. tour stop in support of their new album, Uprhythm, Downbeat.
