Ike Yard was founded in 1979 in New York. The downtown art band created a new sound by tapping into the UK post-punk dub of PiL and Joy Division, the Neue Deutsche Welle of D.A.F., and the krautrock experimentation of Can. Members were Stuart Argabright, Kenny Compton (bass/vocals), Fred Szymanski (synthesizers/ programming) & Michael Diekmann (guitar). Together they recorded for labels like Disques du Crépuscule and Factory. Ike Yard dissolved at the beginning of 1983. Their only album, Ike Yard also known as A Fact A Second is a classic that still inspires post-punk bands and electronic producers. Released in 1982 it was also the sole album to be issued by Factory US.
Ike Yard is now reissued in its original form : 6 tracks where the drums were replaced by machines, guitars swapped for synthesizers and vocals mostly processed through masses of effects.
