Album Review

Recalling bands like Black Flag, Jerry's Kids, Sham 69, and the Circle Jerks (but much heavier), Lawnmower Deth acquired a small cult following by combining a classic punk/hardcore sound with the blistering intensity of thrash metal. But while those units had an angry sociopolitical agenda, this British band takes a very humorous, tongue-in-cheek approach on this highly entertaining 35-track CD (which boasts both studio and live recordings). Song titles like "Got No Legs? Don't Come Crawling to Me," "Satan's Trampoline," "Weebles Wobble but They Don't Fall Down," and "F.A.T. (Fascist and Tubby)" point to the fact that Lawnmower's main goal was to have fun at any cost. And on those songs, as well as the death metal/grindcore parody "Sharp Fucka Blades of Hades/March of Mods" and scorching covers of Motörhead's "Motorhead" and Kim Wilde's "Kids in America," the band does exactly that.

Better than a SnowBlower in a Blizzard!

This is a wild ride, only thing that compared back in the day was Spaztic Blurr, maybe Scatterbrain It's a fun thrash/metal/death/weird ride through a lot of songs.

If you don't buy the album at least get track 18. It is a great song, not quite as strange as the other songs, straight forward thrash.

Based in Mansfield, England, the band was founded in 1987, at the height of the thrash metal movement, which already seemed to take itself less seriously than most metallic subgenres (most notably, Bermuda shorts-sporting New Yorkers Anthrax). Lawnmower Deth's members decided to adopt silly stage names, to boot: singer...
