Formed originally by Pete Leonard & Mick Crabtree after The Falcons had split in late 1965. The band underwent many line-up changes the most relevent being the departure of founder Pete Leonard on guitar to be replaced by keyboard player Geoff Town in ?? 1966. Promoter Norman Guest took on the job of managing band. The bands inception and short lifespan was heavily based around their residency at The Royal Links Pavillion in Cromer.

 

In July 1967 The group became Mid West Excursion because another band, not local, had emerged as The Ultimate. It is thought that the band split soon after.
