Sex is the debut album of improvised music trio, The Necks, originally released on the Spiral Scratch label and later rereleased on Fish of Milk and Private Music in the US. The album features a single track of just under an hour in length performed by Chris Abrahams, Lloyd Swanton and Tony Buck improvising over a two-bar motif. On this album the band overdubbed the instrumentation of piano, bass and drums in a dual take creating a "hypnotic repetitive piece".

Sex by The Necks, released 11 July 1989 1. Sex Sex was not the band’s first recording, but it was their first release. Recorded in 1988, it established the long form approach that the band has become known for, and has continued to be a strong seller in the Necks catalog. Fifty-six minutes and six seconds of strange/beautiful acoustic ambience plays out as Swanton’s pulsing bass motif combines with Buck’s gliding cymbal work and Abrahams’ sparsely melodic piano. The effect is mesmerising and immersive - an excellent album with which to begin listening to The Necks’ music.

Sex doesn't fulfil first album stereotypes. It is fully formed and unfaltering, as smooth and lustrous as sea-lashed glass. During the naughties The Necks oozed from cult to iconic band, both at home in Australia and abroad. Copies of Sex, originally released on Spiral Scratch, re-issued in '95 on The Necks' label Fish Of Milk and, more recently, on Fuse, continued to tick over.

Talk about The Necks - Sex


Pooker
someone should press this on vinyl! its time I think...Please!
Gogal
Best album I've heard in the last 20 years of "ambient" type music, as classic as the best Eno stuff (so much so he started collaborating with them). Can't say enough about this amazing debut. I've played it 50 times, all their stuff is good but this one really stands out for me.
Briciraz
Agreed. I picked up a copy at one of their concerts last night having only just discovered the band. Truly hypnotic, beautiful and unique music which I can't recommend highly enough.
Rarranere
precious, precious thing this is."After more than 20 years of playing together, the Necks have honed their art to the point where their concerts are like collective meditations, executed with a Zen-like discipline that paradoxically engenders an extraordinary amount of freedom". The Age Couldn't agree more.

After a hard day's work or a weekend of drug-induced extravaganza, this is the perfect CD to unwind. For me it works best on a cold winterday close to a soft knispering fireplace, but during sunset in a hammock at a tropical beach it equally does the trick. Are you sitting comfortable? Now prepare yourself for an hour of PURE RELAXATION. The track uses a minimal amount of elements from a piano, a bass and different kinds of percussion to create a musical palette which slowly but surely builds by adding a new element at just the right moments. It's the ultimate hybrid of JAZZ and AMBIENT an sounds like an improvised JAMsession: by mixing these three words together I hereby invented a brand new musical style > this is JAMBIENT ! One of my alltime favorite chillout CD's, now go buy it!
