Ooh crikey, it’s… a Lawnmower Deth collection

Hello there, I finally found the time to upload some pictures of my Lawnmower Deth collection. I first heard of these lads way back in 1991 when me and my friends were totally into Death Metal. Bands like Entombed, Carnage, Morbid Angel, Bolt Thrower etc. were among my favorites and we bought almost all the early releases of labels like Nuclear Blast and of course Earache that came out between 1990 and 1992. There were compilations as well, one of them being the infamous Grindcrusher albums. I think it was on the second volume where I discovered a band that I had never heard of before: Lawnmower Deth. I immediately liked their unique and crazy sound and picked up a CD copy of their debut for Earache Records, „Ooh crikey, it’s Lawnmower Deth“. To this day, this album is still one of my favorite albums.

Fast forward 21 years: It’s 2012, I no longer have long hair (and hope that I won’t lose any more…), have a regular job, etc. All that is supposed to happen when you’re getting older I guess. However, I still try to go to shows on a regular basis and through Facebook I got in touch with some of the Lawnmower Deth guys. Over the years I bought quite a few records and even though there are some bands I have every regular album of (e.g. Bad Religion, of whom I try to get all different vinyl colors whenever a new record comes out), there is only one band that I tried to literally get everything of: Lawnmower Deth. Well not technically everything as I don’t try to buy all available copies of „Billy“ for example. But you get it, I try to get every format of their releases, the CD, the LP, albums that came out in different countries etc.. I thought that with a band like Lawnmower Deth that put out three albums, a split album and a single, it shouldn’t be too hard to get all this stuff. Boy was I wrong. I never imagined there were different tape versions of „Return of the fabulous Metal Bozo Clowns“. I never thought the US CD release of „Ooh crikey…“ came with different colours of the discs. And then there are of course the test presses. How do you find these?!

Well, as I said, over the years my collection of Lawnmower Deth releases grew steadily. In the future in want to upload pictures of all individual releases with some comments. For the moment I leave you with an overview of my collection. Let me know what you think.

Thanks to all those who helped me out with information regarding the releases, especially Hector Kirkwood (amazing collections!) and the Lawnmower Deth guys.

Stefan
