Watch out Grandma, Lawnmower deth have a new webpage on this interweb thingy… well proper now!
Lawnmower Deth were formed in Ravenshead, Nottinghamshire, England in 1987 by Chris Flint and Joseph Whitaker School mates Pete Lee, Steve Nesfield and Chris Parkes, along with Gavin ‘Paddy’ O’Malley from Colwick, Nottingham.
Their first official release was a split album with Metal Duck. Lawnmower Deth’s side of the record was entitled Mower Liberation Front and positive responses led to their debut studio album, Ooh Crikey, It’s… Lawnmower Deth. Lawnmower Deth’s second studio album, Return of the Fabulous Metal Bozo Clowns, was released in 1992. For this release Paddy was replaced by Kev Papworth.
The band’s sense of humour extended into their cheap but enjoyable music videos including “Kids in America” and “Lawnmowers for Heroes, Comics for Zeros”.
Nowadays they dust off their twangers, oil up the wheelchairs and do several gigs over the year (just don´t call it a tour!).
