The Necks @ The Street Theatre

17 February 2010 1

Legendary Australian improvisers The Necks are one of Australia’s most highly regarded musical ensembles. Critical acclaim worldwide reflects a growing realisation that these three Australians have created a way of making music unlike anything else.
Highly respected music writer Richard Williams, in his book The Blue Moment: Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue and the Remaking of Modern Music starts his discussion of The Necks by saying ‘the new music I would find it hardest to do without, fifty years after Kind of Blue, is that produced by The Necks.’

Long-term fans of this unique band come back time after time for their annual fix, as The Necks slowly conjure their sound mountains out of thin air, but if you haven’t heard them before, come along and check them out. You’ve never known two hours to pass so quickly.

The Necks play at The Street Theatre in Street One on Saturday Feb 27 @ 8pm.

Standard – $33.00 | Concession – $27.00 | Student – $23.00 |

Bookings: or ph: 6247 1223

damn being a new father – don’t think we’ll get there this year. d’oh. brilliant stuff – has to be seen live to be believed, though a recording will give you a sense of it, esp ‘townsville’, which was a gig (though with what and how they play, all their recordings are essentially ‘live’, innit)

and the street is actually a great venue to see them in – their soundscapes work wonderfully in that room, and it is a comfy place to sit and immerse yourself in their magic.
