Formed 1979.


Yello is a Swiss electronic band consisting of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank. Their single "Oh Yeah" featured in the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and "The Race" peaked at number 7 on the UK Singles Chart.

The band was originally formed by Boris Blank (keyboards, sampling, percussion, backing vocals) and Carlos Perón (tapes) in the late 1970s.

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 comment made by Meier, "a yelled Hello".

Yello worked extensively with singers Billy Mackenzie and Shirley Bassey.
