The Necks are one of the world's great cult bands. Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums/percussion), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms. Featuring lengthy pieces which slowly unravel in a mesmerising fashion, frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove, The Necks are not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz - their music is unique in the world today.
After one of their busiest years yet in 2017 - which featured the release of their acclaimed double LP Unfold, opening for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds on their Australian tour, a successful tour of the US, three European tours, and a huge feature article in the The New York Times describing them as ‘the greatest trio on earth’ - The Necks, Australia’s legendary artists-in-resonance, return in February to perform a run of east coast dates and mix their new album which will be released later in the year.
