As previously mentioned, a month-long tribute to Fad Gadget is underway in NYC this month, and tonight (3/3) is the night Xeno & Oaklander perform with Ike Yard

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. -John Allen/WFMU

Ike Yard disbanded in 1983, but reunited a few years back in conjunction with their 1980-82 retrospective CD on Acute Records. The lineup features three of the four original members — Stuart Argabright, Kenny Compton, & Michael Diekmann. [FreeMusicArchive]

Xeno & Oaklander have been keeping it old school lately. Tonight Fad Gadget & Ike Yard. Last week they opened for William Bennett project Cut Hands at Public Assembly, which is the same venue they played a BrooklynVegan CMJ day party this year. Here are some pictures from the October show. More of them below…
