"The Necks are one of the great cult bands of Australia. Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms. Featuring lengthy pieces which slowly unravel in the most mesmerising fashion, frequently underpinned by an insistent deep groove, the fifteen albums by The Necks stand up to re-listening time and time again.
The deceptive simplicity of their music throws forth new charms on each hearing. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the music of The Necks is possibly unique in the world today." [www.thenecks.com]
In other words, The Necks are the shit. Get this, you should've by now.

"Do you guys know that actually, with a band that operates at this level, up-loading and sharing all this music does great damage to the possibilities in the future for the band to record and make new albums. Maybe it's becoming a boring subject, but with income from our records being severely dented by this stuff, it does make it really hard.
Glad you like the music. How about supporting us and buying some music from www.thenecks.com
Cheers, TONY (The Necks)"
