The Necks are one of the most distinctive and compelling groups in music. This November they take up residency at Cafe OTO performing six sets over three nights...
“these men are gods!” Michael Gira, Swans
Chris Abrahams piano
Lloyd Swanton bass
Tony Buck drums
Together for 25 years the Australian cult trio, The Necks, have enthralled audiences worldwide with their compelling style of improvisation. Defying orthodox description, not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, their music is regularly described internationally as, simply, unique.
Featuring lengthy pieces of slow-form development which build in mesmerizing, epic fashion frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove, their performances are never less than phenomenal.
"one of the most extraordinary groups on the planet...not so much a trio as a revolutionary consortium redefining music...“ The Guardian
"One of the greatest bands in the world" - New York Times
"Absolutely riveting...how three musicians can sound like eighteen is a mystery... extraordinary magical sounds emerged from the ensemble...the way The Necks do this with acoustic instruments is nothing short of miraculous" Financial Times
"The Necks are singular... Yielding things no one else does" The Wire
