“Upside Down” is the first single from the Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain. The song was written by William Reid and Jim Reid, and was produced by The Jesus and Mary Chain. The b-side is a cover of a Syd Barrett song and was produced by Joe Foster. At the time the band was formed by Jim Reid (vocals), William Reid (guitar), Douglas Hart (bass) and Murray Dalglish (drums). The sleeves for the first 1.000 copies (in red with black words) were printed by Bobby Gillespie (the next drummer in the band) in Glasgow, and featured handwritten messages from the group. The next copies were in black with red words. In 1985 the single was re-released with a totally different sleeve but same catalogue number.
