Trevor Rabin’s 90124 – 363

Ken Fuller's gift!
Ken Fuller’s gift!

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

This week Mark and I take a look at Trevor Rabin’s collection of demos and early versions entitled 90124. It’s a fascinating set of proto-yes music, if you can get hold of a copy. I am indebted to Ken Fuller for mine.

Also this week, we think about how Yes or ARW could keep in contact with their fans better.

  • What are these early demos like?
  • What can we learn about Yes songs from them?
  • What clues to the influence of Rabin do they contain?

Steve Nardelli talks about Chris Squire, Peter Banks, The Syn and Syndestructible – 362

Syndestructible

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

In our somewhat delayed episode, Mark and I speak to The Syn front man, Steve Nardelli this week. It was an amazing conversation which delved deeply into all parts of The Syn’s story including a residency at The Marquee Club, supporting Jimi Hendrix,  inventing the Rock Opera, trying to get Chris Squire to turn up to gigs on time and the influence of Peter Banks amongst many other topics.

Also this week, I announce the dramatic changes to the Yes Music Podcast which are planned for 2019. You can’t afford to miss this information. Next year is going to be very special.

  • What were Chris Squire and Peter Banks like to work with?
  • Which Welsh icon was kind to the band?
  • Why couldn’t The Syn get out of their dressing room on the night Jimi Hendrix came to town?

Episode delay

We have a wonderful interview this week with Steve Nardelli from The Syn. We really enjoyed talking to him at great length but unfortunately, I haven’t finished the editing so rather than rush the episode out I have decided to release it as soon as possible. Sorry for the delay!
