Teapacks was formed in 1988, when Gal Peremen and Kobi Oz met at a Kibbutz in southern Israel. The two began playing Kobi’s original songs, and were later joined by other musicians from local Kibbutzim and the city of Sderot.
Up until now, the band has released several albums, a movie soundtrack, one EP and a greatest hits collection. Four albums went Gold, and two went Platinum. Over the years, their singles have received regular radio play, often climbing to the top of the Israeli charts. Teapacks has been named “Band of the Year” numerous times by various Israeli media outlets. Their thousands of live performances have filled concert halls, festivals, and a host of high-profile events in Israel and around the world.
The last album is titled עבודת כפיים (Manual work) and counts with many collaborations giving serious gains to the self named jewish punk.
Teapacks participated in the Eurovision Song Contest that took place in Helsinki, Finland on May 2007, as they refer in their facebook account "a kind of an international American Idol for songs" .
