THE NECKS IN EXCITING NEW AUSTRALIAN TV SERIES, WITH AUDIO ON INTERNET
Hear the music of The Necks
Their entire 25-minute performance for Set:
The Necks are one of the great Australian underground acts.
With Chris Abrahams on piano, Tony Buck on drums, and Lloyd Swanton on bass, they’ve produced 12 critically acclaimed, highly successful albums that have sold in the thousands, all with a minimum of publicity and mainstream media support.
In 1998 their evocative soundtrack for Rowan Woods’ The Boys was nominated for Best Musical Score at both the AFI Awards and Australian Guild of Screen Composers Awards and in 2004 their 11th album, Drive-by, received the Aria for best jazz release.
Decidedly difficult to pigeon-hole, The Necks inhabit a space somewhere between minimalism, ambient music and jazz; yet remain distinct from all of these forms.
