  • Venue: Hullick/JOLT Space — 288 Albert St, Brunswick, VIC

Event Details

Dead Neckers are comprised of ‘bucketrider’ and ‘Embers’ members Adam Simmons on tenor saxophone and other woodwinds, and David Brown (AKA ‘candlesnuffer’) playing microtonal electric bass. Also from Embers and his own ‘Kris Wanders Unit’, but with a long history dating back to the mid-1960s in European ensembles like the Globe Unity Orchestra is Dutch expatriate Chris Wanders on Tenor Saxophone. On electric guitar and organ is Lisa MacKinney renowned for her solo, psychedelic, drone project Mystic Eyes. The gel that entangles and underpins all these elements is powerhouse jazz drummer Damien Ellis.

What they will play for JOLT: Dead Neckers will map out glacial movements and shifting tectonic plates - slabs of sound, piercing guitar clashes, microtonal-grinding bass, screeching saxophones – it might not be pretty but it is a visceral sonic experience.

What she will perform for JOLT: My work will include inhalations, exhalations, articulations and resonances. Objects and instruments other than me may be involved. I may or may not yell at the audience quite as much as at recent gigs. Extended vocal techniques are guaranteed.
