Farmyard were a Wellington group  who were around only for a short time from 1970 to 1971. Rick White, previously  of the Relics and Tom Thumb, started with the group but was later replaced by  Bernard Lee.
Their first single for Polydor in 1970 was "Learnin' 'bout  Living"/"Da Woirks". It was successful enough to gain entry in to the 1971  Loxene Gold Disk Awards. A self-titled album was also released and came in a  plastic bag with a poster. A second single "Nothing's Happening Here"/"Me, The  Dog, Ma And Dear Ol' Dad" also came out in 1970 and was included on their second  album called "Back To Fronting" released in 1971. Their third and last single  was "Which Way Confusion Part 1"/"Which Way Confusion Part 2", taken from their  first album and appeared during 1971.
Both of their albums were repackaged in  1991 into a double album called "Looking For A Place" on the Little Wing label.  That album appears below. After Farmyard disbanded, Tom Swainson joined  Wellington underground band Arkastra in February 1972, and Redeye in  1976.
