“One of the greatest bands in the world” - NEW YORK TIMES

One of Australia’s great cult bands The Necks returns to The Street marking the 30th anniversary of the band.

Fresh from supporting Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds on their 2017 Summer tour, this concert will feature mesmerising pieces that slowly unravel and create instant deep grooves, the deceptive simplicity of their music throws forth new charms on each hearing. The hard earned, almost telepathic rapport that Chris Abrahams (Piano) Lloyd Swanton (Bass) and Tony Buck (Drums) have developed is truly one of the most compelling in live music.

Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor Jazz the music of The Necks is unique in the world today. The Necks are, simply, at the top of their game. To see them live is quite special indeed.

'...entirely new and entirely now….they produce a post jazz, post rock, post everything sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals.' THE GUARDIAN (UK)

'...a performance by The Necks is a kind of religious experience...' THE AUSTRALIAN
