The band, led by original vocalist Howard ‘H’ Smith, are fresh from their first UK/Irish tour in 25 years are aiming to bring the curtain down on 2015 in style!
“How could we pass up a last minute invite to the Lawnmowers Xmas party?! It’s great being able to help out and we haven’t played Nottingham for 25 years so it’s about time we got our Squaredance on at Rock City the scene of so many drunken nights in years gone by. Bring. It. On.”

“It was naturally disappointing due to unavoidable illness to lose Steve ‘Dobby’ Dawson and Graham Oliver from the bill, they were our formative years heroes and we were honoured, but hey, every cloud. What do you do, ask Santa for an early present. And we’re delighted he got our old muckers Acid Reign to jump on the bill. It’s the one everyone has been asking for, for 25 years! LMD and Acid Reign back on the same bill. It’s big bonza for Christmas time, pass the mead, this one’s getting messy.”
