If you have had the pleasure of reading John Sinclair's life affirming tome, Guitar Army, you might have some knowledge of The UP. For the rest of you squares, The UP were super tight White Panther bros of the legendary MC5. Now while The UP were like a mere spark next to the explosive rock power of the 5, they were still a bunch of fearless furry freaks ready to fight the pigs for the right to rock, smoke grass, and bang dumpy college girls in peasant dresses, and that demands attention. In 1970, under the management of John Sinclair the band managed to eke out the single Just Like An Aborigine b/w Hassan I Sabbah, but soon after John was busted on some bullshit weed charge. This setback resulted in the inspiration for the band's second single Free John Now! b/w Prayer For John Sinclair. Here's a great collection of everything the The UP managed to get on tape in their short career, and it even has a guest appearance from America's favorite pederastic poet, Alan Ginsberg. Enjoy this shit with a bong and a rifle within reach. Off the pigs!
