More About

While Australian trio the Necks is often categorized as jazz, the group actually takes its influence from Krautrockers such as Neu! and minimalists like Philip Glass and Terry Riley. When they perform, the lads usually introduce a simple, improvised melodic motif that's then repeated and subtly expanded upon, embellishing as they go along. Drummer and occasional guitarist Tony Buck often forgoes a steady beat for an impressionistic approach; pianist Chris Abrahams (who once toured as a member of Midnight Oil) alternates the gentle sparseness of Erik Satie with the volatility of McCoy Tyner; and Lloyd Swanton's bass anchors, moans, and sighs.
