Both Yamauchi and Bundrick had played with Kossoff and drummer Simon Kirke on the album Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu and Rabbit during that period in late 1971 where the band had broken up.
Yamauchi had only a very minor influence in the band; the Japanese bassist was unfamiliar with the English language and in any case was unwilling to jeopardise playing in a relatively well-known and well-regarded British band.
After two unsuccessful albums, the guitarist died of a heart attack on board an aeroplane on the 19 March 1976, at the age of 25.
