Baker's Dozen

Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives


Yello – You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess (Vertigo, 1983)

I think perhaps Yello haven’t had the attention they deserve because they’re Swiss and not German, but like a fine red wine Yello will find a niche in the younger generations of the future. They thought the moon was beautiful.,. “Oh yeah.” They were recording at a time when industrial music was more influential then Synth pop and that’s why it appealed to many a fan of the industrial sound rather then the euro pop sound.

Selected in other Baker’s Dozens: Lord Spikeheart, Tom Ravenscroft
