Mother & Son
After establishing themselves as a favourite on the Wollongong scene in the later 00's, swampy/garage duo Mother & Son delivered their debut, self titled album in February 2011, a record that was a critical success and has since became a local classic. Scoring numerous album of the week spots across press and community radio nationally, Bodie & Mat toured the release around Australia and also took their sounds to Europe. In 2013 they played the inaugural Farmer & The Owl Festival but that would be their last show before a hiatus. The music of Mother & Son has had a lasting influence however, in numerous interview's Hockey Dad's Zach Stephenson name checks the band as almost the sole reason Billy and himself started Hockey Dad, after sneaking into shows under age to see them play. When the Farmer & The Owl bands were asked who they wanted to be included on this years event, Mother & Son were at the top of the Hockey Dad wish list, Bodie & Mat agreed and the duo will now take to the stage for the first time in over five years.
