The Government Yard write songs out of our concerns for compulsive land clearing and sterility of urban society. In the Jarrah forests of the Darling Scarp we practice ringing out voice, chords and drums, learning our own ways of playing and writing .

We enjoy creating our own art and video clips; In 2012 the video for our song "Peron" was selected as Indie of the week on rage (ABC TV)

"If you're a fan of classic 90s post-rock/hardcore you'll love our Indie of the Week. The Government Yard's video for Peron uses shadow puppetry, and is quite mesmerizing!"
