Out From Under is a weekly exploration of eclectic and experimental Australian music, presented by Stuart Buchanan. This second episode features an interview with renowned Australian improvisational trio, The Necks – celebrating the release of their new record, ‘Vertigo’, and their current 30th anniversary tour, which takes in Europe and North America over the next two months. Chris Abrahams and Tony Buck discuss their wholly-improvised live shows and their approach to studio recording, plus there’s music from ‘Vertigo’ and their 1989 debut ‘Sex’, along with unreleased music from both Chris’ upcoming solo album on Room 40 and the new album from Tony’s collaborative project, Circadia.
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.
