Kelippa 2012 . Hand-painted limited edition of 300 copies. “No Neck Blues Band are the last of their kind, children of a New York City that no longer exists. They’ve operated in the shadows of Gothams music scene for almost twenty years as likely to perform in art galleries as loft spaces. No Neck Blues Band are revolutionaries, carrying on the search for freedom through improvisation that began after Coltrane liberated jazz. But No Neck Blues Band doesn’t play jazz per se, or any other known idiom for that matter. Their sound has its precedents most notably the genre-blurring, early-70s work of England’s Third Ear Band and German groups Exmagma and recent co-conspirators Embryo.
