Jet

  • Jet is a rock band from Melbourne, Australia composed of Cameron Muncey, Mark Wilson, and brothers Nic and Chris Cester
  • Brothers Nic Cester and Chris Cester grew up in Dingley Village, a suburb just out of Melbourne, Victoria listening to classic rock from the 1960s and 1970s such as The Who, AC/DC, The Easybeats, Faces, The Loved Ones and particularly The Rolling Stones and The Beatles
  • However, according to Nic, it was Australian band You Am I who had the biggest influence on Jet's developing musical tastes
  • They decided to form a band with Cameron Muncey, Nic's friend from school and with whom he had been in a band, and with bassist Doug Armstrong whom Nic and Chris met while working together at their Dad's spice factory
  • During 2001 an old high school friend of Chris' joined the band on keyboard, and it was at this time that the band took their current name from the song "Jet" from Wings' 1973 album Band on the Run
  • The new band met Mark Wilson one night in 2002 at a concert and, despite already having a bass player, asked him to play with them
  • In May 2008, Jet released a video clip on YouTube paying tribute to the work of the late Fred Hollows.  Lead singer Nic Cester says he wanted to highlight that Professor Hollow's work to restore sight to the cataract blind in developing countries was ongoing 15 years after his death
  • In 2007, Jet signed a petition which called for an end to Canada's annual seal hunt
