Here are some really great Audio Lobotomies practices. This stuff has certainly never seen the light of day. These were either at Ethan’s place on hawthorne, Nate P’s place, or my place on J street. Good energy and decent sound! Get it.
CC put together a retrospective sometime in the late 90’s i think – limited CD release only. I have one of the covers somewhere or another around here, but i like the vibe of the master tape here. This is a pretty cool testament to the output of our old pal over the years. Pretty incredible really. Anyhow, without further ado:
First Audio Lobotomies show that wasn’t a party. Tons of covers here – basically our entire discography before we started doing our own stuff. This was recorded on a 4 track and this is a random mix down of the show. Looking for the original tape to get some better sound.
Some well-mixed instrumentals here along with a couple other goodies including the first ‘Pills’ demo and a good version of ‘Crescent City’ with vocals. Also, enjoy some drunk acapella versions.
Ok. No shit – this is the best handheld recording i have ever heard. some magic in the air that night with the light rain and Jesse holding that thing just right. it just worked. This is a classic recording that very few people have heard in total. I am really excited to get this one in!
There is quite a bit on this one here. 4 Fur Brothers mixdowns (2 songs) and several early Audio Lobotomies songs. These were the tracks Ethan and Chris gave me to listen to when i was brought into that band. This stuff is sentimental to me. And more Glowbugs!
Some rare Audio Lobotomies practice recordings. Not much anything this band did saw the light of day – pretty excited to get this stuff out there finally after 24 years!
So the couple Lobotomies songs here are instrumental versions of two songs we put on our demo that was never really released. Both of these songs (with vocals) also ended up on CC’s ‘Horrible New Year’ comp.
