In the second half of the 1970s is poet Robert Calvert for some years the face of the band. Doremi Fasol Latido album from 1972 is the most sold album.

Due to the constant coming and going of group members, the popularity of the band deteriorated by the end of the 1970s. By that time, Lemmy Kilmister, state that due to disagreement on drug use from the band was set, top the charts with Motörhead.

Starting from the nineties the band somewhat lives on, thanks to the rise of ambient house.
