The Fifth formed in Gimli, Manitoba. The band moved to Winnipeg and eventually signed with London Records. Their first single, "Yesterday's Today" became a regional hit and received the Lloyd C. Moffat Award for Best Canadian Produced Rock Recording in 1968 managing to place #93 on the charts.

At the time of the award the band was flying high on their second legitimate hit "Tears" which placed even higher at #64 on the charts.

Rene had played with The Quid; Winter had been in Gettysburg Address; Master had played in 5 A.M. Event who tried unsuccessfully to conquer the UK with a failed single on Pye before returning to Winnipeg; Belanger was recruited from Chopping Block.

After the band split up Belanger, Grabowski, Watts, Johnson and Sellar formed The Next(and later added Ksionzek on bass); Winter joined The Guess Who as did Master, though, in a later Jim Kale incarnation; Belanger later joined Harlequin; Rene joined Minneapolis band The Litter.
