live at WFMU 2/10/2009 by The Necks
The Necks hail fron Sydney, Australia and since 1987 have utilized the piano/bass/drums format in a singular, unorthodox fashion that has left them uncategorizable, yet critically-acclaimed and in high demand from jazz, ambient, and avant-rock festivals.
In 2008, the trio of Chris Abrahams (piano) Tony Buck (drums, percussion) and Lloyd Swanton (stand-up bass) performed their sprawling, dense, and tranced-out pieces at four shows at their hometown Sydney Opera House. They arrived in America for a short Northeast tour in February 2009 that included shows February 10th at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC, and Feb 11th at Princeton University, as well as this Feb 10th live set on Brian Turner's show.
