Lead vocalist Mick Farren regards the album as the beginning of a divergence between himself and his fellow musicians, stating "I had one idea and the rest of them wanted to be a kind of Led Zeppelin guitar band".[2] Soon after the band would split, with Farren going on to record the Mona – The Carnivorous Circus album before leaving the music business, while the others continued as the Pink Fairies.
