Was this group named after Albert Ayler's recording of the same name? Is there any connection with Louis Moholos' 1978 album of the same name?

According to Gwen Ansel's "Soweto Blues," the group was formed in 1974 by Gilbert Matthews, the drummer on this track, and Duke Makasi, who's playing sax. She says that they named it after the Albert Ayler tune.

That's all I know (until I get around to fully transcribing two long interviews that I did with Robbie Jansen about four years ago).
