Back Yard recordings is a UK independent record label based in London.

The label was set up by Gil Goldberg and can count acts such as Gossip, Chromeo, Seelenluft, The Similou, Ali Love and Teenagersintokyo among its roster.

Back Yard initially made its name as a promotions company, putting on the first London shows of now well established bands such as Muse and Stereophonics.

Slowly it evolved into a record label and in 2006 after a number of minor chart hits, Back Yard released 'Standing In The Way Of Control' in the UK, Europe and Japan, the third album by American disco punk rockers 'Gossip'.

The album spawned the Top 10 single of the same name and went on to sell 300,000 copies across Europe.

The following year the label released 'Fancy Footwork' by Chromeo in the UK.

Back Yard Recordings has its own customised content channel on Audiotube.
