Upcoming tour dates from The Necks:
Known as one of the great cult bands of Australia, The Necks conjure music that defies description in orthodox terms.
Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the music of The Necks is regularly described as, simply, unique. Together for over twenty years, they have honed an assured process of building around repeated motifs through subtle shifts and layering, to produce an extraordinarily dense and hypnotic effect frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove. As their dedicated followers know, their performances are entirely improvised consisting of two pieces evolving over around 50 minutes each and are an experience that has to be heard to be believed.
