Gainesville, Florida locals Less Than Jake have been ripping it up since 1992 with their ska-punk tunes and an Australian Tour including Australian punk legends Bodyjar couldn’t be more fitting as the support act.

Less Than Jake “Does the Lion City Still Roar?” taken from GNV FLA (2008)

Forming in 1990 in Melbourne, going by the names Damnation and releasing You Can’t Hold Me Down (1993) as Helium before their debut Take a Look Inside (1994) and the name change to Bodyjar.

You may be familiar with “Not the Same” from Tony Hawk Pro-Skater 3?

… Or this cool rendition of The Bangles hit, “Hazy Shade of Winter”?

We will take a look at Bodyjar over the years with a video from each release.
