High-spin levels of ('122)Xe and ('124)Xe populated in the ((alpha),4n(gamma)) reaction on enriched tellurium targets, were investigated. Gamma-ray-multiplicity filter, and angular distribution measurements have been carried out. The observation of the backbending of the ground band, and of the two-quasi-particle high-spin bands in ('122,124)Xe, is the first in xenon nuclei. These bands were interpreted in the framework of the rotation-alignment picture.
