'These songs were recorded at Street Level studios by Kif Kif and Grant Showbiz: they liked what we did and asked if they could release it on their Fuck Off Tapes label; we agreed but didn't have a name, so Kif Kif named us Pete Astor's Jungle Orchestra, which we shortened to Damp Jungle. I don't think the tape ever came out.'
THE LIVING ROOM
'We recorded these songs at our rehearsal space at 85 Crayford Road in Tufnell Park where drummer Andy was living; a bit later on, he disappeared, then Dave Morgan joined, and we started to play at Alan McGee's Living Room club. It seemed a bit awkward for us both to call ourselves The Living Room, so we moved upstairs into The Loft'.
