The Necks - masters of their own musical language

Over the thirty years of their existence, The Necks have built an international reputation as masters of their own musical language. They have collaborated with artists such as: Brian Eno, Swans, Evan Parker, Karl Hyde and several symphony orchestras. They toured Australia 6 years ago as the opening act for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, and in 2019 they collaborated with Underworld on their new audio-visual series, as well as with Michael Gira on the new Swans album. After an extended, covid-enforced hiatus, they return to Prague with their new album Travel (2023).

They have been touring Europe for over 20 years. Every Necks’ performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room. Their minimalist, repetitive improvisation with piano, drums and bass sounds as if it comes from a single unknown instrument.

The Necks are:

Chris Abrahams – piano, Hammond organ
Tony Buck – drums, percussions, electric guitar
Lloyd Swanton – bass, double bass
