True that is.

Are you talking about the first Lobotomys record?

That is, this one?

It was recorded in the late 80s, so some of the instruments might sound dated to some people's ears, but the tunes and the level of musicianship are slammin,' IMO. My faves are "Big Bone," "Lobotomy Stew," "Smell Yourself" & and "All Blues."

At any rate, if the first Lobotomys disc doesn't appeal to you, then you might prefer the follow-up:

This disc rocks a lot harder and everyone stretches out a lot more during the improv sections.
