The Parachute Club, so-called because they 'parachuted' into gigs together, were quite well-known, particularly in Toronto.

The members were Billy Brayans, Lauri Conger, Margo Davidson, Dave Gray, Julie Masi, Lorraine Segato, and Steve Webster.

'RISE UP' did receive a lot of air play; it was a wonderful song. And it boasts lyrics extolling revolution. In later years, the song was used by a right-wing politician, without the permission of the composers, as his theme song. He didn't realize what the lyrics meant. What's new!
