The Necks: The Great Trio of Australia

Wednesday 26th February / presented by Jackson Hawdon Will Backler

The Australian trio with an international reputation for releasing and performing some of the most interesting and engaging music of our generation joined Jackson and Will on Out To Lunch ahead of their 2 shows in Perth last week for the Perth Festival.

Often labelled as experimental jazz, The Necks defy that classification, taking elements from ambient, avant-garde and minimal composition across their 21 studio albums and relentless live shows. Their most recent release, Three, was a recent RTRFM feature album.

Composed of Chris Abrahams on piano, Tony Buck on drums and percussion and Lloyd Swanton on bass, the trio have been exploring their genre-bending, improvisational work for over 30 years.

They talk to Jackson and Will about the difference between their live show and studio sessions, how their sound has changed since the 80's, the importance of the performance space and more.
