Bobby Martin did not sing IEB until 88 when Ray White was no longer in the 
band.  He did sing Zomby Woof in 82 when they were both in the band but I guess 
FZ decided the song fit Martin's voice better.  It had been sung by Ricky 
Lancelotti so perhaps FZ wanted a strident, white voice.  Both songs were too 
high pitched for Ike to sing.
