Founded in 1979, the downtown art band Ike Yard created a new sound by tapping into the UK post-punk dub of PiL and Joy Division, the Neue Deutsche Welle of DAF, and the krautrock experimentation of Can. Their 1982 album 'A Fact A Second' (released on Factory Records) has stood the test of time and is considered a classic in the minimalist genre. In conjunction with their recent 1980-82 retrospective CD on Acute Records, Ike Yard performed a set of new music for the first time in 25 years at WFMU on John Allen's program. A track from that session, "Traffikers", will be released on a new full-length titled Nord on the Phisteria label, in spring 2010. In February 2010, Phisteria released a 10'' EP titled Öst - the first new release in 27 years from these no wave/postpunk legends Ike Yard.

-John Allen and Jason Sigal
