The Necks see hear

See and hear The Necks in recent concert performances

For the first time ever, video footage of an entire Necks concert - that's two whole sets - can be viewed online. Their March concert at The Factory in Sydney, Australia, as part of the Places and Spaces series, can be seen here. And last month The Necks played three sellout shows at The Vortex, in London. UK listeners can hear "Locksmith", one of the sets from that night, tonight (Friday 13th June) on BBC Radio 3's Jazz on 3 from 11.30pm. The show will also be available for listening on the internet for one week. Go to and click on 'listen to the latest programme'.
