Biography

Yello is a Swiss electronic band consisting of Dieter Meier and Boris Blank. Their 1985 single "Oh Yeah", featured in the films Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Secret of My Success, 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.
