Rock Rover sees an activation of a big old beaut room in the middle of Fremantle. The mid size venue has been made possible by a partnership between Cool Perth Nights, the people behind Mojo’s Bar, and South Fremantle Football Club. It just so happens that Jebediah’s Vanessa Thornton is a long time supporter of South Freo’s Bulldogs. Given the roots of the band, Jebediah are long time supporters of local music venues in their home town of WA. Supporting this synergy of WA communities pretty much makes this one of the funnest nights on the gig calendar. It was almost 23 years ago that Jebediah first shambled on stage in their shorts, sneakers, blue hair, dimples, grins and smirks and started bouncing off the walls with their roaring riffs and soaring pop hooks, tearing the lid off the Big Day Out and the Hottest 100 overnight. 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. 23 years, six albums and piles of awards and acclaim later, the Jebs continue to captivate their devout fan base with their infectious energy and enthusiasm. There is no hiding the joy the band get from playing together and be it at packed pub or on a festival stage, it’s impossible to avoid their immersive charm.
