This Brisbane-based Australian combo initially plied their wares on the club and discotheque circuit, mainly performing cover versions of the Top 40 hits of the day. They did, however, release two swinging pop singles for Columbia/EMI: What Price Love? (June 1968) and Listen, Listen (January 1969).

In 1969 the band were managed by former Twilights vocalist Glenn Shorrock, while his former bandmate Terry Britten wrote The Avengers’ third single, Tweedelee Dee (May 1969).

The band broke up in September the same year with Don Lebler joining Axiom.

By the end of the year, Andy Tait had formed The New Avengers which also included Jeff Black, Bobby Jacobson, Rick Matson and David Briggs. John Bush replaced Briggs on guitar in 1970, but the new line-up was short-lived.

Briggs subsequently joined Glenn Shorrock in the Little River Band in 1976.
