Hawkwind main writers Robert Calvert vocals and Dave Brock guitar were living in Devon towards the end of and had befriended local band Ark, who had often supported Hawkwind at some of their West Country gigs. Sonic Assassins played one gig, at the Barnstaple Queens Hall on 23 Decemberwith a day of overdubs being added some time later at Griffin's studio.
During the rehearsals in the run-up to the gig, it was uncertain whether Calvert would be taking part and the set on the night deviated from the one Calvert was expecting which resulted in some improvisations from the frontman, as can be heard on "Over the Top" when he expected the band to launch into a version of "Master of the Universe".
The set was to be released as an album, but it was eventually released only on various EPs and compilations:. On returning to the UK, Hawkwind were dissolved and resurrected as the Hawklordswith Bainbridge and Griffin forming the rhythm section. Although "Angels of Life" has a "We're angels of life, we're angels of death" vocal, it bears no musical similarity to the "Angels of Death" song from the Hawkwind album Sonic Attack.
