Lawnmower Deth For UK Christmas Number 1

Ooooooooooh Crikey!

AddAltmode enthusiastically support the campaign to get Lawnmower Deth to #1 in the UK single charts this Christmas.

Heads up, internet! Lawnmower Deth, the kings of intentionally-silly thrash metal, have been attracting some attention from the UK’s radio stations of late, which has resulted in a campaign for fans to get their classic single Kids In America (a cover of the Kim Wilde song) to position #1 in the UK singles chart for Christmas.

Adding to this already amusing proposition, Qualcast Mutilator and his chums have decided to donate all the proceeds to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation — a charitable group that draws attention to hate crimes, and offers support for the victims.

December the 19th is LD-day, i.e. December the 19th is the day to buy Kids in America to put it into the Christmas charts, so we will definitely be re-familiarising ourselves with this crazy-ass legend of British thrash on that day. Whereas the thrash metal scene across the pond took themselves completely seriously, British bands like Lawnmower Deth and Metal Duck weren’t afraid to have a laugh, which imparted some very important lessons on a young AddAltModeB.

Lawnmower Deth released some cracking albums back in the day, so it's great to see them get a little bit of positive media attention, even if it's two decades later than I'd like.
