Description

Together for 25 years the Australian cult trio, The Necks, enthral audiences worldwide with their compelling style of improvisation.

Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies orthodox description. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, their music is regularly described internationally as, simply, unique.

The deceptive simplicity of their music throws forth new charms on each hearing. Featuring lengthy pieces of long-form development, which build in a mesmerizing, epic fashion frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove, their performances are never less than phenomenal.

Village Underground in Shoreditch will play host to this great cult band of Australia as part of our Transcender festival.

'One of the most extraordinary groups on the planet... sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals.' The Guardian
