Performance Reponse: The Necks 30th Anniversary Series
Struggling to find the right words with which to describe a performance by the Necks, a writer can't be faulted for veering off-road. The long-running Australian improvising trio, which celebrated its 30th anniversary with a three-concert series at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn February 22-25, consistently lives up to the hoary adage more than meets the eye – and, as compared to its impressive string of 18 albums, more than meets the ear, too. Live, believe me, the group's impact encourages gonzo.
