Lawnmower Deth Posts Christmas Video, “F U Kristmas” Online

British thrash veterans Lawnmower Deth has teamed up with pop star Kim Wilde to release their very own Christmas single, “F U Kristmas.” The video for the song can be seen below. The relationship between the band and the singer stretches back to 1991 when Lawnmower Deth released a cover of Wilde’s, “Kids In America,” which she later claimed was her favourite version of the song. Last year, Wilde joined Lawnmower Deth on stage to perform “Kids In America,” as well as, “Egg Sandwich” and “Watch Out Grandma,” while Lawnmower Deth will be appearing at Wilde’s Christmas show in Manchester this month (December 22nd.)

Snares Of Sixes Streaming “Yeast Mother” EP

“Yeast Mother: An Electroacoustic Mass,” the debut EP by Snares Of Sixes – the newest investigative musical outlet of Agalloch’s Jason Walton – just saw release through Crucial Blast this past Friday. Now a full stream has come online and can be heard below.

Fusing an intense and eclectic range of extreme and experimental approaches into a disjointed and somehow simultaneously seamless hybrid of sounds, Snares Of Sixes’ maiden recording sees co members of Lawnmower Deth, Winds, Sculptured, Blekspetl, Hollow Branches, Self Spiller, Barrowlands, Age Of Silence, Dolven, Musk Ox, The Night Watch, Maestus, and more joining the creator in his delivery of this intriguing mutation.

Offers Jason Walton of the EP: “‘Yeast Mother’ scratched an insidious and pervasive itch for me. In many ways this is an album I have been striving to make since my high school years. Once I fell in love with challenging and confounding music, I have created many vehicles to try to replicate the feeling of awe this form of music inspired in me. Especially Likely Sloth, Nothing, and Self Spiller were all created to satisfy this craving. With Yeast Mother, I believe I have finally reached that goal.”

Lawnmower Deth Announces Christmas Show In London

Tongue in cheek thrash metal veterans Lawnmower Deth has announced a special headline show at The Garage in London, England, which will take place on December 15th. A message from the band reads as follows:

“Crikey it’s been a fair old while since I’ve been over to this dusty corner of the Internet and apologies to all who dwell on MySpace should be given for such neglect (Join us of Facebook… hint hint… it’s so much easier to post stuff over there!).

“Anyway, just to let you know that we are doing a headline slot at the Garage in London for X-mas 2012! That’s loads of time for you to save your pennies and get a ticket.

“So far the mighty Beholder have been confirmed as support but there will be others added soon, we hope to make this a strong line-up as we don’t get out often these days, the day pass at the clinic is a rare event so we want to make the most of it.

“Tickets are already on sale and can be obtained from the following locations: here
and here.

“Also don’t forget to come over and say hello if your off to Hammerfest next month… we are on after Anthrax and we will be the band who are fast asleep onstage ’cause it will be stupid o’clock in the morning by that time!

“Cheers for now”
