Yello - Discography Yello is a Swiss electronica band consisting of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank. They are probably best known for their singles "The Race" and "Oh Yeah", which feature a mix of electronic music and manipulated vocals. The band was originally formed by Boris Blank (keyboards, sampling, percussion, backing vocals) and Carlos Perón (tapes) in the late 1970s. Dieter Meier (vocals, lyrics), a millionaire industrialist and gambler, was brought in when the two founders realised that they needed a singer. The new band name Yello was chosen as a pun based on a statement made by Dieter Meier: “a yelled Hello” Yello (1980) - Solid Pleasure This debut album is their strangest and weirdest- it runs the gammut of styles from trippy psychedelia to pseudo-reggae. Their later releases were more popular but this album is definitely the most creative. Also check out Claro Que Si and other Ralph Records bands for ultimate strangeness.

When they still made each track a multi-layered mini-movie. Psychedelic, mind bending, never predictable, it's a trip.

They had already separated from their indie roots by moving over from Ralph to the high-profile Mercury Records, and their music was becoming something of an underground cult in clubs and on stereos worldwide. Looking at the track's titles, one might think that Yello had lost their idiosyncratic sting while opting for commercial acceptance.

Dieter Meier and Boris Blank's modus operandi was creating a sophisticated type of dance music that managed to have wide appeal without sacrificing its strangeness. Meier's vocals, often more songspiel than singing, jump from film noir and back again. From the twinkling starlight, disco grooves of "Vicious Games" and "Domingo," to the shuffling synthesizers and air of menace broached on "Desire," Meier's vocals suggest more than a whiff of panther-esque sexuality.

Released in 1987, the album is noteworthy for featuring both Billy MacKenzie and Shirley Bassey, the latter singing vocals on "The Rhythm Divine". The song "Call It Love" was used in an episode of Miami Vice.

Very similar in sound, although this record is more thematic in the concept of a race. Flawless musicianship, perfect mixes, unbelievable clarity and a barrage of well-written, well-contrived material adds up to another great album by a great band.
