Yes – The Tormato Story
by Kevin Mulryne
Foreword by Oliver Wakeman
The music of Yes indelibly shaped the original sound of progressive rock. But the true tale of this landmark band goes well beyond headline-making albums like Fragile and Close to the Edge. In this book, Kevin Mulryne tells the absorbing story of the final Yes album of the 1970s, Tormato, uncovering myriad fascinating twists and turns for the first time.
“Tormato was my introduction to the music of the world’s greatest progressive rock band, and I have spent years finding out all I can about it,” explains Kevin. “I have spoken to fans, experts and many of the people who were there during the technical setup of the equipment, the recording of the album, and the creation of the artwork.”
“Along the way, I have learned a great deal about Yes, and the processes, frustrations and triumphs of recording a rock album in the late ‘70s. This is a deep dive into what makes an iconic band tick. I’m sure you will enjoy the journey as much as me!”
So what’s the real deal with Tormato? … Be prepared to be surprised.
Kevin Mulryne is founder and joint host of the weekly Yes Music Podcast, which is now in its second decade. He is also co-founder of Teacher Hug Radio, an audio expert, a member of The Podcast Academy, an audiobook producer and narrator, a webinar host and an e-learning consultant.

How about lanyards, Kevin? Would love a YMP lanyard. I would wear it proudly!
Once upon a time there was talk of a luggage tag. . . and I’m sure we’d all like to see T-shirts again. If you can wrangle the legalities thereof.
Tee shirts shouldn’t be a problem as Kevin has the OK for the new logo (at least assuming the OK is not limited to use on the website/pod feed). My old tee is seriously faded and has shrunk (OK i might have put on a bit of weight).
The red/Blue logo on a black tee would look great
Yes I agree, Tim and T shirts are being worked on as we speak. I have a prototype but it’s not quite right yet…stay tuned!
Kevin …just a thought but the T-shirt would be longer lasting and not out if date next year if it just said
Yes music podcast at the bottom.
Liking it all though.
Ah yes, but this is a ‘special edition’ to celebrate the 50 years and 7 years. Another version will be available soon. I should have made it clear on the details. Thanks for the comment, Dave. I’ll add those details. 🙂
Ordered the t-shirt and the coaster – Yes , I am a fan!
