The Necks - Wollongong

The Necks - Wollongong

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