The Necks

Fri 8 Feb

One of the great cult bands of Australia.

Revered instrumental trio The Necks return to Wollongong following a sell-out UK and European tour and the release of their 20th album ‘Body’.

Described by the New York Times as ‘the greatest trio on earth,The Necks are masters of long-form improvisation, with Chris Abrahams (piano), Lloyd Swanton (bass) and Tony Buck (drums) conjuring a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms.

Featuring pieces which slowly unravel in the most mesmerising fashion and frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove, every show is a unique performance. The deceptive simplicity of their music throws forth new charms on each hearing. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the music of The Necks is possibly unique in the world today.

No two performances are ever the same. Each performance is a thrilling, emotional journey into the unknown.
