At the end of the 1970s, the Parliament-Funkadelic enterprise was starting to crumble. This was caused by a combination of factors, from George Clinton's poor financial management to a clash of interests between the many musicians that had been signed up over the years. Many of the band's key members departed, including Glenn Goins, to form Quazar, and Jerome Brailey to form Mutiny. Three singers who had been with Clinton in The Parliaments since the late 1950s, Haskins, Simon, and Thomas, departed in protest in 1977 because they felt increasingly sidelined by the influx of new P-Funk musicians. They formed their own band and called it Funkadelic, recording Connections & Disconnections. The use of the name Funkadelic resulted in an increasingly bitter and acrimonious legal dispute with Clinton's organization, which would only serve to accelerate the disintegration of Parliament-Funkadelic.
