Lawnmower Deth Singer Comments On Download 2010 Appearance

British thrash metal jokesters Lawnmower Deth will be performing at the United Kingdom's Download Festival for the second time this year, where they will be playing on the Pepsi Max Stage on friday. A message from lead vocalist Qualcast Mutilator (or Pete Lee if you prefer) regarding the festival reads as follows:

"Alright blogees,

"Well, it starts in earnest now so a good excuse to say hi and pop some stuff on here. Sorry it's been a while but Facebook and I have been having a crafty affair behind your backs. As you'll all know now, June 11th we're back at Download for the second year on the bounce. Does this mean I played Donington more than Rainbow, gerrin!

"The boys have already been rehearsing, I'm down for my first one tomorrow as distance makes things more of a challenge these days. Looking forward to making a racket though, its been nine months since I last grunted. Testing testing, one two, woooooooaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhh urgh.

"No idea what the set is, although we do have a little surprise up our sleeves, HAIL THE HALFORD! Depends whether health and safety gets this one into the show :)

"I can confirm that it will be Stage 3 (or should I say Pepsi Max Stage which I am sure Flymo has issue with as last year it was booze magnets Tuborg Stage). I'm delighted. Let's face it, its always more fun in a tent and it was a ball in there last year.

"They wanted us on the big boy Stage 2 and offered us the Saturday or the Sunday. Due to the Baron's time on the road with Bullet For My Valentine he flies in with them (and out again) on the Friday only so we're doing Stage 3 just so we could play. Anyway, who the hell would play any other day when you can live out childhood hero antics and play with the mighty mighty mighty Deece! I'm intent on spending the whole day stalking Malcolm Young. If you find a last minute cancellation of us its because of a restraining order imposed on me.

"Before you ask, warm up show, no idea. If anything happens I promise you'll be the first to know but it will be lowwwwww key.

"Looking forward to seeing you all in June though. Perhaps we should make this one a fancy dress outing. What?? You think what I wore last year was fancy dress? Cheeky gits. I promise a prize and special mentions from the stage to the first person I see in the pit dressed as a rabbit. The gaunlet is down. Hey, if this really took off we could have our own warren in there. Spead the word, hell, lets have a whole Facebook and Myspace campaign. Everyone in doing the rabbit!

"On a seperate but gutted note, I was going to Manchester to see my old muckas and sparring partners Russ-Sabbat at the Academy next week. They were playing with ARCH ENEMY. Gutted. Wot no mish? Ruddy Volcano!

"See you in the pit."
