It was years before the mining boom, but there was another boom happening in Western Australia that was maybe even less expected. Shabby looking rock bands were writing impossibly alluring songs, ensuring that Australian music fans shifted their gaze to the west from time to time.
Leading the charge was Jebediah, a four-piece indie rock band whose debut album combined the American slacker rock of bands like Archers Of Loaf with uniquely Australian lyrics that spoke of those heady days between your teenage years and adulthood. It connected strongly and set the band up as firm favourites in the Australian alternative scene.
Twenty years on, the band and its fans have grown up together. Their five albums have seen their musical scope evolve, but they’ve retained a devoted fan base throughout.
