The punk band called College

Okey i'll be honest with you, I don't have the slightest idea on the history of this punk band called College. My limited knowledge of them is that this was Arnold Morales' first band right before they formed The Urban Bandits. I've only heard one of their song, "Manila Girl", which eventually became a hit via Morales' other band in the 1990s called Put3Ska. An old magazine article by Didits Gonzales names the band members of College as Arnold Morales, Enggol, Ric and his brother...which is not much help...unless all four are online and can shed some insight on their old punk band. If anyone knows...feel free to tell us some stories via the comments page. Anyway, here's the picture of the band and their great song...I'm also wondering where this song came from and if they ever had any more original songs...was it from a compilation album or was it a DIY release? I can only guess...um, we might as well guess who plays which instrument.
