…IT’S SWOOPING SEASON…
The Nation Two – Narrm/Melbourne
Power-Chord Couple, The Nation Two, return to Mamma Chen’s after recent tours to Meanjin/Brisbane and Tarndanya/Adelaide. Consisting of multiple fuzz pedals and singalong vocals and harmonies, TN2 channel a 90s punk/grunge vibe through a lens of more recent fuzzy/noisy/catchy bands like Ovlov and Metz. They recently launched their single Read The Room, which was self-produced and mastered by Bob Weston, who has worked with such artists as Nirvana, LCD Soundsystem and Idlewild. They like video games and beer gardens.

Mamma Chen’s acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation, the true owners of the land that we live and operate on. We would like to pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
