The band was originally formed by Boris Blank (keyboards, sampling, percussion, backing vocals) and Carlos Peron (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.
