The incredible Necks

The Necks are one of the great cult bands of Australia. With next to no publicity, their 13 albums have sold in their thousands.

Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums) and Lloyd Swanton (bass) have an intimate musical chemistry.

Featuring lengthy improvised pieces which slowly unravel in the most fascinating fashion – frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove – The Necks’ music is not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz. The music is, well, the unique music of The Necks.

The Necks will play the Byron Community Centre on Sunday, February 21, from 7.30pm.

Tickets are $25/20 and available from the centre or at www.byroncentre.com.au.

To go in the draw to win, phone 6622 2888 between 10.15 and 10.30am next Monday, February 15, and tell us if climate change is a) real, b) green fear-mongering, or c) a plot by Tony Abbott to save women from giving away their greatest gift.
