London-Irish Psycho-Céilidh rockers, Neck, are set to take over Stockton’s illustrious The Georgian Theatre later this month as they return to the region with a highly-anticipated and once postponed headlining performance on Friday 13th July.
Often linked musically to such celebrated bands as The Clash and The Pogues, many have drawn comparisons. Backonthetracks.com in the US stated: “If The Clash had been born in the Emerald Isle, they might have ended up sounding like this!” Carefully weaving their way between the electricity of punk-rock and the melancholy of traditional Irish music, Neck manages to master the niche genre known as ‘Psycho-Ceilidh’.
Now renowned on the live circuit of the UK and beyond for their infections tones of Celtic punk and incredible live performances which seem to captivate any crowd they play for, Neck spawned from the densely Irish populated North London neighbourhood of ‘County Holloway’.

After initially restricting their performances to the confines of the London Irish pub circuit, they have since broadened their horizon – both musically and geographically – touring viciously across the US, UK, Ireland and mainland Europe in recent years.
Now a well-respected and raucous live act, they have established themselves as a monumental festival band, and have over the years performed at some of the world’s largest and most acclaimed festivals, including six performances at Somerset’s beloved Glastonbury Festival.
