The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre

699 Desperate Football by The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre

Desperate Football

Release year

The lone, obscure full-length by The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre is a rowdy, rollicking, and occasionally offensive cowpunk hidden gem

Author & Special Guests

In a bar in Perth, Australia in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Fred Negro and his various bands tore through country-tinged punk rock soaked in beer and satire. One of these incarnations was The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre, a short-lived name that produced a single, an EP, and the 1992 album Desperate Football. Like fellow garage post-punks The Scientists or The Birthday Party, on the surface the sound is big, loud and messy. But repeated listens reveal tighter than anticipated musicianship with some chorus hooks that will stay in your brain longer than expected.
