However, as there was an aerobatic display team of the same name, they soon changed the name to The Pursuers. Early gigs were in Ipswich pubs and on Saturday mornings at the Gaumont cinema playing Shadows and other instrumental material. They progressed to youth clubs and local venues, playing R'n'B and 60's beat material. Highlights included playing support to Johnny Kidd and the Pirates and The Hollies. Peter left in 1965 to join the Ipswich-based Unit 4, replacing Morton Lewis for a spell on rhythm guitar and vocals until 'Hap' Taplin joined the band. Michael also joined other bands (see his profile).
