    Thanks Ian, I presume the band UPS (would there name be a nod to the drug speed?) had a very small following in a small area of the USA although they appeared to have had a record contract with a record company although I can't remember if it was a small independent record label that the cd that I had was released on although come to think of it I have a feeling that it may have been.

    Yeah I'm fairly certain that they played a few gigs with the MC5 and they mite have even been managed by John Sinclair the MC5s manager?.

    Below this poster could feature a picture of the band UPS because it's not the MC5 and I think possibly I have seen this picture before included in the UPS cd?.

    Nice one Ian. I like the look of this band as well as there music and in fact I like all these types of 'hippy bands' from the late 1960s & early 1970s.

    I wish I had kept there cd as it appears to very rare??.

    I believe that the band was actually called The Up and not UPS?.
