One of the greatest and most prolific cult bands of our time, ISSUE Project Room is pleased to present two evenings with The Necks.

Performing January 27 and January 28, The Necks will unravel their lengthy, transfixing works in mesmerizing fashion, with pieces frequently underpinned by their signature insistent, deep groove. Their fifteen albums consistently stand up to re-listening time and time again, engaging audiences with their deceptive simplicity. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the music of The Necks is impossible to classify.

Comprised of Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums) and Lloyd Swanton (bass), the spokes of this groundbreaking trio form a diverse circle of collaborators that includes the likes of klezmer-punk group Kletka Red, John Zorn, Sting and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, amongst many others.

"Absolutely riveting...how three musicians can sound like eighteen is a mystery... extraordinary magical sounds emerged from the ensemble...the way The Necks do this with acoustic instruments is nothing short of miraculous." FINANCIAL TIMES (UK)

"...Entirely new and entirely now...They produce a post-jazz, post-rock, post-everything sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals. They may teach us to listen in a new way, but they communicate a fierce energy and warmth at the same time. Their music is a thrilling, emotional journey into the unknown. Like seeing a world in a grain of sand, The Necks permit us to hear a whole new world of music in a sliver of sound." THE GUARDIAN (UK)

"It is a fairly safe bet to say that no other group in the world sounds quite like The Necks...extraordinary empathy and discipline." THE TIMES (UK)

"Tonal, accessible, and yet profoundly challenging... The Necks are singular... Yielding things no one else does." THE WIRE
