Upside Down were a manufactured boy band, who formed after being showcased in a late night 1990s BBC Television documentary on the making of the band.[1] Members included Chris Leng, Giles Kristian, Jamie Browne and Richard Micallef.[2]

The band were developed by World Records, an independent record label who had staked everything on the success of their act. Their first single was written for fellow 1990s boy band Bad Boys Inc. However, after four singles, World Records went into bankruptcy and Upside Down re-grouped as Orange Orange with no further success. Kristian went on to be an author of historical fiction.
