Featuring vocalist Jim Keays and songwriter/tempo guitarist Mick Bower, the band’s first recordings mixed the gritty R&B/rock and roll of Brits just like the Pretty Factors using the minor-key melodies from the Yardbirds.

Bower still left the group after struggling a nervous break down in past due 1967, as well as the Experts grew steadily much less interesting, shifting from rose pop and hard rock and roll to intensifying and acoustic noises. Suffering from instability (going through eight personnel adjustments between 1966 and 1968), the group transferred to Britain in the first ’70s, attaining some cult achievement with progressive rock and roll albums before splitting up in 1972.
