The Up was a late 1960s proto-punk band.


The Up were stalwarts at the summertime Sunday free concerts in Ann Arbor Michigan, from about a year after their formation in 1967 to their dissolution in 1973. The "Killer Up!" collection was assembled from their sparse recordings by John Sinclair as a CD for the Total Energy label in 1995; Sinclair's brother David had been the band's manager.
