|places + spaces presented The Necks WEDNESDAY 5 MARCH, 2008
The Necks are one of the great cult bands of Australia. Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms.
These three musicians are among the most respected and in-demand in . The Necks feature lengthy pieces which slowly unravel in the most intoxicating fashion, frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove.
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.
