Perth four-piece Jebediah had a stellar 2015 celebrating their twentieth anniversary with a double-album release and national sell-out tour.
It's impossible for an Australian of a certain vintage to imagine those late '90s summers without those delirious early Jebs singles - 'Jerks of Attention', 'Leaving Home', 'Teflon', 'Harpoon', 'Animal' - blasting out of every car radio and festival PA from Summersault to the Falls to Homebake.
Kevin Mitchell, Chris Daymond, Vanessa Thornton and Brett Mitchell were mostly teenagers when they set out: brothers and best mates from some far-flung Perth high school who'd accidentally stumbled into the first division of the global rock'n'roll perpetual and given it a cheeky kick up the arse while running rings around it with guitars in the air.
In 2016 nothing much has changed JEBEDIAH still present a live performance with gusto and gratitude.
