The Necks -- presented by New Music Circle and KDHX
Unclassifiable, The Necks stand out over all the other groups Australia has produced. Neither jazz nor rock, this stylistically deceptive trio has maintained a singularly high standard throughout its career.

They will usually begin a set by playing a basic melodic/rhythmic figure and then developing it for up to an hour, gradually introducing microscopic changes and variations. Some critics have compared them to Krautrock groups (German genre of the late 1960s) like Can and Faust while others find similarities to the works of minimalist composers such as La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, or even Philip Glass.

Featuring lengthy pieces which slowly unravel in the most mesmerizing fashion (and frequently underpinned by an insistent, deep groove) the sixteen albums by The Necks hold up well under repeated listening. Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) produce a collective chemistry that warrants their cult status.
