    THE UP were an American rock band formed in Detroit, Michigan in early 1967.
    Along with fellow Detroit bands MC5 and THE STOOGES, The Up served as a "house band" for the famous Grande Ballroom in Detroit.
    The original band line-up consisted of vocalist Frank Bach, guitarist Bob Rasmussen, bassist Gary Rasmussen, and drummer Vic Peraino.
    The band was closely related to the MC5, with both bands' members living in White Panther Party founder John Sinclair's commune.
    In May 1968, Sinclair moved the commune to Ann Arbor, Michigan and both bands followed.
    The Up served as the opening act for the MC5 during a September 1968 show at the University of Michigan's Union Ballroom in Ann Arbor.
    This show was attended by Elektra Records president Jac Holzman; Holzman was impressed with both the MC5 and The Stooges (who were the concert's second act) and offered both bands contracts.
    The Up did not get signed to Elektra and unlike the MC5 and The Stooges, the band never received a major record label contract.
    In 1969, the MC5 ended their association with John Sinclair and the White Panther Party resulting in The Up taking the place of the MC5 as the main musical outlet for the party's philosophies.
    In 1970 The Up released their debut single on red vinyl through their own Sundance Records label.
    The 7", "Just Like An Aborigine", is a fabulous slice of primitive Hard Rock thud, sounding like The Stooges playing BLUE CHEER.
    A further 45 release "Free John Now!", surfaced on the Rainbow Records label in 1971.
    Both sides of the disc were about the jailing of John Sinclair, who had been sentenced to ten years in prison for the possession of two joints.
    The Up disbanded in 1973 and despite the attempts of some members to keep going under the name UPRISING, the name soon faded into obscurity.
    In 1975, the band's former bassist Gary Rasmussen joined the influential SONIC's RENDEZVOUS BAND, a Detroit "supergroup" also featuring former members of the MC5, The Stooges and THE RATIONALS.
    In 1995, a retrospective album titled "Killer Up!", was released containing all of The Up's vintage recordings.
    The album contained all of the band's singles, songs from a recording session at Head Sound Studios and several live tracks recorded at the Agora Ballroom in Ohio in 1972.
    John Sinclair states in the album's liner notes that, "It's common to name the MC5 and the Stooges among the forefathers of what they call punk rock, but it was their associates in a third band, the Up, who could more accurately be identified as the real precursors of punk".
