Jebediah is an Australian alternative rock band formed in 1994 in Perth, Western Australia, Australia. The group consists of vocalist and guitarist Kevin Mitchell, guitarist Chris Daymond, bassist Vanessa Thornton, and Kevin's brother, Brett Mitchell, on drums. After winning the National Campus Band Competition, the band was brought to national attention when the single "Jerks of Attention" received heavy airplay on Australian alternative radio station, Triple J—this was followed by the release of the breakthrough debut album, Slightly Odway.
The band released four studio albums up until 2004; three of which entered the top ten in the ARIA Albums Chart. After going on a tour to promote a tenth anniversary EP, the band went on hiatus in 2005, and frontman Kevin Mitchell undertook solo work under the pseudonym, Bob Evans, as well as an album with the Basement Birds, a "supergroup" formed with fellow musicians, Kav Temperley, Josh Pyke and Steve Parkin. Jebediah reconvened in 2010 and released its fifth studio album, Kosciuszko, the following year, which charted in the Australian "Top Ten".

Jebediah was formed in Perth in 1994 with Kevin Mitchell on vocals and rhythm guitar, Vanessa Thornton (ex-Hybrid, lead guitar) on bass guitar, Chris Daymond (Hybrid) on lead guitar, and Australian-born Bosnian Almin Fulurija on drums. Kevin, Thornton, and Daymond had met in a theatre class at Leeming High School. By early 1995, Kevin's older brother, Brett Mitchell, replaced Fuluriya because the latter would not turn up to practice sessions, Brett had been a drummer with various groups including The Jerk Offs. They are named after Jebediah Springfield, the fictional founder of Springfield on the American cartoon series, The Simpsons.
In May 1995, Jebediah played its first gig, for a Leeming High School formal, at the Perth Sheraton Hotel, where they played covers of songs by Green Day and The Smashing Pumpkins, and one original. The band won the Western Australian semi-finals of the 1995 Australian National Campus Band Competition and in October they won the national final in Lismore. This led to an opening slot on the Summersault Music Festival before high profile bands, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters and Sonic Youth.
Brett Mitchell has explained in a 2011 interview: "In the very early days, everything was just a bit of a shock ... to us; it was like, it was either a shock, if it, if it actually happened, or it was, it seemed kind of absurd if someone was, ah, you know, putting an idea forward about how things would go."
Jebediah's debut release was a five-track extended play, Twitch, which was produced by Chris Dickie (The Pogues) and was issued in August 1996. They had signed to Murmur, a subsidiary label of Sony Music, on the basis of their live performances. The band won their first WAMi award for 'Best Stage Presence'. Twitch debuted at number-one on the local Perth chart and appeared on the ARIA Singles Chart.
The band's first single, "Jerks of Attention", was released in January 1997. It received substantial airplay on the Triple J radio network. The group's appearances at Homebake and the Big Day Out concerts as well as support slots for Soundgarden, Everclear, The Presidents of the United States of America, Silverchair and You Am I, further raised their public profile. Another single, "Leaving Home", was issued in June and reached the top 50. The band won two WAMi awards in 1997 for 'Most Popular Band' and 'Most Popular Song' for "Jerks of Attention".
In September, Jebediah issued its first studio album, Slightly Odway, with Neill King (The Smiths, Madness, Elvis Costello) producing. The album's title is "a comment on the slightly odd way they feel they approach life as well as music". It peaked at number seven on the ARIA Albums Chart, due to the success of tracks like "Leaving Home" and "Military Strongmen", and number two on the ARIA alternative charts, and within four months it was certified gold. "Leaving Home" was rated number 10 in the Triple J Hottest 100 music poll for 1997. Slightly Odway eventually received a double-platinum certificate (140,000 units shipped), with two more top 50 singles, "Teflon" and "Harpoon", adding to its success. Jonathan Lewis of Allmusic felt Slightly Odway showed Jebediah "as a talented young band, despite the flimsy songwriting and the lack of light and shade on the album".
Of Someday Shambles
Jebediah supported The Smashing Pumpkins on their 1998 Australian tour in May. The band released their second album Of Someday Shambles in November 1999, with producer Mark Trombino (Knapsack, Blink 182). According to Ian McFarlane, in his Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, it "was brimming with youthful exuberance and feisty, melodic, guitar-based fuzzy punk-pop perfectly suited to the post-grunge alternative generation". The album peaked at number two, while its first single, "Animal", reached number 16 and is their highest charting single to date. The band toured Canada and New Zealand and won further WAMi awards with 'Best Video' for "Harpoon", and Vanessa Thornton winning 'Best Bass Player'. By December 2000, Of Someday Shambles received a platinum certificate from ARIA.
Jimmy Eat World split EP
Jebediah started 2000 by playing its second Big Day Out tour. It continued touring internationally playing the United States, Canada and New Zealand. In August, the group issued a six-track split EP with Jimmy Eat World, Jebediah / Jimmy Eat World in the US through independent label, Big Wheel Recreation.
The band recorded its third album, Jebediah, from late 2000 and 2001, with production by Magoo (Regurgitator, Spiderbait, Midnight Oil). Its first single "Fall Down" reached number 24 in late October 2001. The self-titled album was not released until five months later, in March 2002. Whilst it debuted at number eight on the charts, it did not reach gold status.
Split with Sony (2003–2005)
Glee Sides and Sparities, a compilation of B-sides and rare tracks, the band's final album with Murmur, was released in January 2003 and the band subsequently left Sony in February 2003, continuing as an independent act.
In a revealing interview for Rolling Stone, Thornton candidly stated that the band's manager at the time "couldn’t be fucked fighting the label for anything that we wanted, and he’d made the decision that we were just going to go with whatever the label reckoned. Near the end, it was fucking soul-destroying for me.”
In July 2004, Jebediah issued their fourth album Braxton Hicks, which was produced by the band itself and appeared on their own record label, Redline Records, distributed by Shock Records. Redline Records had been set up with their manager, Heath Bradby (of Naked Ape Management). The album is named for the contractions some pregnant women experience. It debuted at number 26 while its lead single, "First Time", made the top 50. In June 2005, Jebediah launched their 10-year anniversary tour and released Anniversary E.P. to coincide. Their shows consisted mainly of B-sides and rarities that fans had requested on the band's official internet forums.
In 2005, after completing their tenth anniversary tour, Jebediah decided to take an indefinite break.  While a member of Jebediah, Kevin Mitchell had started a parallel solo career using the pseudonym Bob Evans from 1999. His first solo album Suburban Kid was issued in September 2003. During 2006 to 2007, Kevin released and then promoted his second solo album, Suburban Songbook. He relocated to Melbourne in 2008. Brett began drumming for Perth band The Fuzz. Thornton joined Felicity Groom's backing band, The Black Black Smoke. The band includes Alex Archer (The Kill Devil Hills), Andrew Ryan (Adam Said Galore) and Mat Marsh. In 2009 the band won a WAMi Award for 'Best Indie Pop Act'. Aside from Jebediah commitments, Daymond works in a record store in Perth.
Following Mitchell's 2007 solo tour, he said that he would return to the studio with Jebediah and start recording the band's next album. Jebediah returned for a festival appearance at the Rollercoaster 07 Music Carnival, held at the Western Foreshore in Mandurah on 29 December, where they appeared alongside Hilltop Hoods, The Black Keys, Shihad, Kisschasy, Birds of Tokyo and Ash Grunwald. In September 2008, the group also played gigs in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. The shows were sold out despite little advertising and largely relying on word of mouth.
Kevin released his third studio album, Goodnight, Bull Creek!, in April 2009. The following year, he formed Basement Birds with Kavyen Temperley of Eskimo Joe, Josh Pyke, and Steve Parkin. The group released their debut self-titled album in July 2010 and played a headlining tour in addition to festival dates.
Jebediah returned to the studio in 2010 to rehearse old material and write new music for their next album, Kosciuszko. Due to Kevin Mitchell's other musical commitments, recording for the album occurred sporadically from early 2008 and its release was delayed until April 2011. Kosciuszko was produced by the band members, who created the album without any time constraints. Brett Mitchell explained in a 2011 interview:
The best thing for us was the freedom we had to make it. We had all the time we wanted on it. With Kevin being in Melbourne we’d take a week here and there and we could work and shape the songs more with that freedom and time ... there were periods where, for example, Kevin was the only one in the studio with the rest of us all working or doing whatever.
According to the drummer, all four band members were satisfied with the outcome of the recording sessions and it was "a more unanimous feeling than it has been in the past."
Kevin Mitchell reflected on the making of the album:
It’s a very different record for us and I’m really excited about it. It’s the first real "studio" album we have ever made. Every other album has been recorded quite traditionally. We write a bunch of songs, play them live a bunch of times and then go in to studio and bash them out in a few weeks. This time round we had barely played the songs live, we wrote a few of them in the studio and we really used the studio as an instrument.
The album was released on the Dew Process label on 15 April 2013 and debuted at number six. Richard Kingsmill premiered lead single "Lost My Nerve" on his Triple J music show on 17 October 2010. The second single, "She's Like a Comet", was released in January 2011, with an accompanying music video, and became the most added single to radio airplay. "She's Like a Comet" debuted at number 11 on the ARIA Top 20 Australian Singles Chart number 47 on the ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart, and reached number four on the AMR Top 100 Airplay Chart.
The group toured Australia to promote the album throughout the remainder of 2011, playing at the Splendour In The Grass festival and touring regional locations such as Broome and Mount Hotham. Jebediah also performed at the National Youth Week 2011 launch event in Melbourne, Australia and appeared on television program Sunrise to perform "She's Like A Comet".
Matt Hogan of X-Press magazine attributed the success of the fifth album to Kevin Mitchell's work as Bob Evans and with the Basement Birds.
Welcome to Kosciuszko
On 13 April 2011, the band uploaded a 13-minute documentary film onto YouTube, entitled Welcome to Kosciuszko, released in conjunction with Dew Process and filmed by Australian-based production company, The Grindhouse (directed by Brent Quincy Buchanan and filmed by Harry Joaquin Charnock). The film chronicles the band's history together, featuring interviews with all four members.
Released following the band's hiatus, the documentary serves as both a re-introduction of the band to the public arena, but also a reflection upon the past. Thornton explains, as part of an interview in the documentary, her perspective on the height of the band's career:
We were so caught up in our own wild ride that we were being swept along doing what we were doing, and, I mean, at the time, we were meeting all these bands that we idolised and, and, were big fans of ... and, um, got to play gigs with them all ... The first tour we went on, then led into the next tour and, before we knew it, we were on the road to pretty much ten years solid.
Kevin Mitchell further explains:
We didn't really have aspirations to make records at that point, when we first started out; it was all about playing live, really. You know, enjoying each other's company, and writing songs, and gettin' stoned, partying and having fun ... Once we started, which was 1996, we didn't really stop until 2005. And, yeah, like I said, we were proud of how much we toured. We were-it was a badge of honour to play as much as possible.
Daymond also reflects in the documentary:
Without, sort of, having to organise it too much, we were all committed to the band to see how far it would go; and I think everyone was really happy with where it ended up taking us ... We were 17 when we started touring, um ... it was really awesome to be involved with a label like Murmur as well—Murmur had a lot of really cool bands on the roster; I mean, just getting invited to see a Silverchair gig, or something like that, was really exciting.
The band's perspective on the Murmur record label is further elucidated in the documentary. Thornton states: "There's no way we would've done what we did if Murmur wasn't our label", while Brett Mitchell further explains: "Because even though they were part of a much bigger company [Sony], um, we were shielded from a lot of that."
On 28 September 2012, the band performed at the Rock Lily venue (part of the Star Casino complex) in Sydney, Australia, with The Sculptures and Conrad Greenleaf serving as the support acts. On 24 November 2012, the band played at the Super Saturday horse racing event at the Ascot Raceway in Perth, Australia.
In a 2013 interview with web-based publication Tone Deaf, Mitchell described the songwriting process for Jebediah, a band that consists of his "best mates", in the following manner: "a real democratic process, it’s like trying to pass legislation.” Mitchell then elaborated further on the future of the band in a March 2013 interview during the promotional process for the fourth Bob Evans album: "I don’t know, I like to think there will be [more to come]. I’d love to make another Jebediah record but at this stage we havent’ even got together or started writing or anything yet so it’s too far away to really be able to tell."
Something for Kate recorded a cover version of "Harpoon" that was released on the Harpoon EP. A Jebediah cover version of the Something For Kate song "Clint" was also released on the EP.
The band, in partnership with its management company at the time, Naked Ape Management, launched an independent licencing label that was distributed through Australian company, Shock. Kevin Mitchell has explained:
I think we were all pretty naive about what we, what we were achieving—we were having too much fun to get kind of caught up. We'd just released our second album overseas on an independent label; and, spent time in America as an independent act. And that was around about the time where we started our own label, just to, um, release, maybe, release a few, some bands of friends of ours, in bands.
Before the official dissolution of the label in 2011, Redline Records released recordings from bands such as Adam Said Galore, Jimmy Eat World, Blueline Medic, Big Heavy Stuff, Gyroscope, Sekiden and also released Jebediah's fourth album, Braxton Hicks.
Mitchell has achieved success with his Bob Evans solo project and, as of October 2012, is preparing for the launch of his fourth album in Melbourne, Australia. The album, entitled Familiar Stranger, will be preceded by the Double Life EP—the EP will be launched on 9 November 2012 and coincides with a national tour of Australia. Mitchell stated during an "Unplugged and Wired" performance for Google+ on 28 November 2012 that the "Double Life" title applied to both his concurrent work with Jebediah, in addition to his new role as father and husband.
Thornton and Brett Mitchell have joined an English singer–songwriter, Addison Axe, to form the band Axe Girl. The band is based in Perth, Australia, has completed numerous live performances (played at popular venues such as the Hyde Park Hotel in inner-city Perth) and will release its debut EP as a free download on 9 November 2012 as part of a launch event at The Norfolk Basement Hotel in Fremantle, Western Australia, Australia.
Axe Girl recorded its debut EP and it was made available for free download on 26 October 2012. The EP, entitled Ghost Romance, was accompanied by a video 'scrapbook', showing excerpts from the recording process, that was uploaded to the band's YouTube page. As of 24 October 2012, the band has been added to the roster of Perth music management company, Tyranocorp (Cal Peck & The Tramps, Fear of Comedy). On 29 September 2013, the band published photos from a video shoot for the song "Give Me Your Tee Shirt" that was filmed in the City of Perth.
Thornton has also played with Perth, Australia bands, End of Fashion and Felicity Groom and the Black, Black Smoke.
In a September 2009 interview, Thornton revealed that "Chris mostly keeps to himself and does his crazy paintings". As of 2012, Daymond is a member of the Nirvana cover band, Nirvanarama (not to be confused with the Ipswich, United Kingdom (UK) band of the same name), alongside members of the bands, Gyroscope and Karnivool. Nirvanarama's debut live performance was in December 2011 in Perth, Australia. Nirvanarama maintains a Facebook fan page and a Twitter account (under the name "Nirvanarama Rock") to provide fans with updates on its activities.
Daymond married his female partner, Belinda, in a Western Australian outdoor location called "The Quarry" in December 2012, while Kevin Mitchell and Thornton were in attendance. A group Irish dance performance was part of the wedding ceremony.
Mitchell married long-term girlfriend, Kristen, in November 2006 and in December 2008 they moved from Perth to Seddon, Victoria, an inner-west suburb of Melbourne. As of March 2013, Mitchell and Kristen are the parents of a baby girl, Ella Jean, and reside in the Melbourne suburb of Deer Park. Speaking on his personal life prior to the release of Familiar Stranger, Mitchell jokingly revealed in an interview that "I have zero social life. I have no hobbies, I have nothing else except making music and being a father”.
