Yello is a Swiss electronic band consisting of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank. They are best known for their singles "Oh Yeah", featured in the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and "The Race", which peaked at #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.
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 worked extensively with singers Billy Mackenzie and Shirley Bassey.
