Ike Yard is an electronic band 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.
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, only a year after Acute records released a well-received career anthology titled Ike Yard: 1980-82 Collected. After a hiatus of roughly 28 years, Danish/Swedish imprint Phisteria released Öst, a limited edition 10-inch, which was followed by their latest full-length, Nord, Phisteria licensing the album to Desire Records for worldwide distribution.
