New Weird Australia Podcast #6. The Necks – Interview

From 2009-2012, the New Weird Australia Podcast featured selected interviews and in-studio recordings from my FBi radio show, as well as live performances from events, video interviews and more.

THE NECKS are one of Australia’s most innovative cult bands, channeling experimental, avant garde, jazz, ambient and minimal sounds via a back catalogue that runs to fifteen albums over twenty years. Each of THE NECKS also has an equally impressive solo and collaborative career – however they always find time to regroup and return to Sydney at least once a year for one of their renowned live shows.

Ahead of their Sydney show in February 2010, Chris Abrahams from THE NECKS joined Danny and I on the NEW WEIRD AUSTRALIA Radio Show for a chat about their ever-evolving career and, in particular, the new album ‘Silverwater’ – a single 67 minute piece, representing some of their best work to date.
