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’.

Described by the New York Times as ‘the greatest trio on earth,’ The Necks are masters of long-form improvisation, with Chris Abrahams (piano), Lloyd Swanton (bass) and Tony Buck (drums) conjuring a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms.

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.

No two performances are ever the same. Each performance is a thrilling, emotional journey into the unknown.
