Ike Yard

Profile:
Ike Yard was founded in 1979 in New York. Members are 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, 'A Fact A Second' (on Factory in 1982) is still a classic in the minimal genre and stood the test of time very easily.

Although Ike Yard dissolved by the beginning of 1983, the band reformed as a three piece unit with original members Stuart Argabright, Kenneth Compton and Michael Diekmann in 2007. After a hiatus of 28 years a brand new album (Nord) has been released in 2010.
