The Necks at Redcat in Los Angeles on February 19th

The Necks "Entirely new and entirely now... The Necks' music is a thrilling journey into the unknown..." --The Guardian

One of the great left-field cult bands working today, the trio from Sydney delivers a post-jazz, post-rock, post-everything sonic experience that has few parallels anywhere. Pianist Chris Abrahams, drummer Tony Buck and bassist Lloyd Swanton have earned plenty of adulation for their truly unique improvisational pieces that unwind repeating musical figures in tantalizing fashion, usually underpinned by an insistent deep groove. The players, individually among most in-demand session men in Australia, conjure up a preternatural chemistry that defies description: they have pioneered a revolutionary method of performing that transcends style and genre while retaining a fierce energy and an uncommon dose of empathy. The Necks' most recent recording is the live album Townsville.
