Australian punk rock act 2mums are back with Side B of their hard-hitting two-part album – Bushmaster. Side A was released in December 2021 and Side B is available now on all digital platforms via Counter Clockwise Records.
The infamous potato farmers from the far south coast of NSW are back with Side B, it’s another dark and heavy offering focused on violence and destruction. Murder, mayhem and good times.
Bushmaster Side B Track by track
PB: A lot of pregnant chicks around town lately, lined up at Centrelink (welfare) pushing around multiple strollers. That’s cool – each to their own but don’t try tell me that kid is mine I was wearing a raincoat.
Psycholist: Some crazy psycho on the highway is hunting cyclists.
The Outro: Fu*ked if we know what it’s about. I doubt our singer even knows.
Windows 98: was a game changer – suddenly we had the world at our fingers, everything on demand and nothing off limits – we loved it. Those nostalgic moments of anticipation as we install, start up and then pressed ENTER.

2MUMS were formed in 2017 when a bunch of local potato farmers from the backwaters of the far south coast of NSW joined forces to voice concerns over the influx of jar drinking hipsters, yogies, christian rock groups, retired public servants, eco-friendly vegans and social media influencers moving into the local area.
This worrying demographic shift prompted a musical response as an outlet for built up frustration and resentment to boil over. The spud farmers were being pushed further out as their lands were being replaced by eco retreats and vegan pie shops. With spud farmers throughout the area disappearing off into the landscape, music became the medium for a chosen few spudding activists still remaining.
2MUMS has led the charge; their music is, as you would expect, pure punk rock.
