They visited RCA in Los Angeles and The Residents in San Francisco. After returning to Switzerland Dieter Meier showed up and sung on a demo. Carlos was euphoric, but Boris was skeptical - he would rather have a female singer. In 1979 the studio moved to Dieter Meier's atelier at the Rote Fabrik, and later on the trio Yello was founded.
Also the first maxi single of Yello came out (with ‘I.T. Splash’ and ‘Glue Head’) on the local label Periphery Perfume. In 1980 Yello rejected a record contract offered by Klaus Schulze; they preferred a contract with Ralph Records in San Francisco owned by the Residents, and they released their first Yello album Solid Pleasure. After the album "You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess", Blank and Meier remained a duo, when Peron left the band. Read more on Last.fm.
