Exhibit 18: Recording at Yukio's Parent's House (c.1983)

YY: Almost all of my early recordings were made in my parents' front room in Colchester Road, Ipswich. This also served as the base for my first record label. These photographs are of a session for the first Jung Analysts album. My preparations would begin with borrowing as much equipment as I could from friends. I generally had no conventional songs prepared, but simply chose an instrument, switched on the tape recorder and played. The vocals would come at the very end. Some of the lyrics on those early albums recordings are terrible. Shame, really, because a lot of that music is quite interesting.
