Lawnmower Deth (1989-1993) is a Thrash Metal band from Nottingham, UK.
nown only by their stage names Qualcast Mutilator (vocals), Concorde Faceripper (guitar), Schitzo Rotary Sprintmaster (guitar), Mightymo Destructimo (bass) and Mr. (Cob Brew) Flymo (drums) and inspired by the over-the-top styles of Judas Priest, Venom and Skyclad, Lawmower Deth came across as another humorous version of Spinal Tap by spoofing the thrash metal genre. With the help of Metal Duck, they released Quack 'Em All in 1989. Although it, and all they produced, failed to chart, the humor didn't go missed, especially with 'Earache' who signed them torelease their second effort Ohh Crickey It's... in 1990. This effort proved to be their best and funniest with classic tracks like Can I Cultivate Your Groinal Garden? and Satan's Trampoline.
Kev (ex-Acid Reign) replaced Rotary for Return Of The Fabulous Metal Bozo Clowns (1992) by which time they were a regular appearance in many British pubs and even cut a cover version of Kim Wilde's Kids In America. But the joke was quickly wearing thin and after 1993's Billy they called it quits.
