Formed out of the ashes of Mood Jga Jga in the spring of 1976 when Gord Osland and Ian Gardiner left to record with Burton Cummings, the original line-up was Greg Leskiw, Larry Pink, Hermann Frühm, Bill Wallace, and Marc LaFrance.  Double keyboards … a unique treat at their debut in the Norlander Hotel May 3, 1976 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
 
Leskiw left the band around 1978, prior to their first recording.  Bob Deutscher was recruited to replace Greg and by 1979, they were signed to Stony Plain Records out of Edmonton.  Two albums followed - the self-titled "Crowcuss" (1979) and "Starting to Show" (1980).

Greg Godovitz, of Goddo, noted, "Crowcuss is a band's band.  They're the sort of group you love to go out and play with."
