After 10 glorious years in Brooklyn, NECKING has reformed in San Diego. Nick (founder) is lame and super bummed to have left Dong-Ping Wong and Rop Vazquez, but stoked to find rad folks in SD including Amy Cimini, Clint McCallum, and Scott Nielsen. New life!
NECKING has just uploaded SINGLES 2005-2009 to Bandcamp. Download it for free!
Introducing MANKINDA! Alan Jones, Steve Flato, Nick Lesley. Live and studio albums coming.
“Then, one of the weekend’s mightiest acts stormed the stage, early evening light still dappling, even though their crazed sounds were meant for the midnight hour. Alien Whale brings together the tri-borough (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens) New Yorkers Colin Langenus (guitar), Matt Mottel (keytar), and Nick Lesley (drums), three musical maniacs with a desperate rapport, once again taking a form, psychedelic jazz-rock, and bending it into an extreme parody—thrilling, absurd, macho and moronic, virtuosic and violent. Mottel and Langenus were vying for supremacy as they traded ever more elaborate solos, kept aloft and limber by Lesley’s whipcrack patterns. When Langenus was rising up to solo dominance, Mottel maintained a rippling bass flow, but when the keytar-slinger came forth himself, the treble end suddenly ripped into glorious primacy, in a rocked up Terry Riley rupture of rapture. They played like it was their final show, as if it was the latest, most drink’n’drug fuelled nightcap possible.”
