6. Lawnmower Deth – Ooh Crikey It’s… Lawnmower Deth (1990)
Whether you considered Lawnmower Deth a thrash parody or a pain in the arse, there was no ignoring them and Ooh Crikey It’s… Lawnmower Deth is certainly not an album you forget in a hurry!
While most thrash bands were attempting to scare the shit out of you with their oh-so-serious demeanor, Lawnmower Deth bought the fun and the frolics to a scene which often suffered from a sense of humour bypass.
One look at the song titles told you all you needed to know: “Flying Killer Cobs From the Planet Bob”, “Got No Legs? Don’t Come Crawling To Me” and “Sumo Rabbit And His Inescapable Trap Of Doom”. If those titles don’t peak your interest, then nothing will!
Jokes aside, these guys sure could play and their manic, attention-deficit brand of thrash remains a joy to listen to; as long as you’re willing to give yourself to their unique sense of humour, of course!
Another British band who came back from the dead to spread havoc once more, Lawnmower Deth reunited in late 2008 and have gone from strength to strength ever since. In 2017, the cheeky fuckers even teamed back up with 80’s pop princess Kim Wilde, in an attempt to nick the Christmas no.1 spot!
