Yes Talk with guitarist Fernando Perdomo – 435

Fernando with Steve Hackett on the Cruise to the Edge

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

This week, Mark and I had a hugely enjoyable conversation with the amazing Fernando Perdomo. A long-term collaborator with a previous guest, Dave Kerzner, Fernando tells us about his fascination with Peter Banks, his work on the 50th Anniversary Yes tribute CD and his own music in the new Peter Banks continuation project, The New Empire whose album is out soon. Fernando has even given us permission to play a song from the new album exclusively here on the show so listen out for that later on – I’m sure you’ll agree it’s brilliant.

Mark and I also had time to record our thoughts in a two pence segment about the rumours around the producer for the new Yes album. Hold on tight for that as well.

Fernando in full flow
  • How does Peter Banks’ style differ from Steve Howe’s?
  • What drew Fernando to the music of Yes?
  • How is Fernando preserving the legacy of Peter Banks?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

Reviews from the archives – 383

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

This week it’s half term for me and the family so there’s been no time to record a full episode. Instead, here are three reviews Mark did a long time ago – Flash, In The Can and One Live Badger. We hope to be back with our full episode on One Live Badger next week as usual.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What did Mark think of these 3 albums?

Peter Banks-era Yes videos – 369

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

Peter Banks

After seeing Fernando Perdomo’s Peter Banks replica Yes guitar, we were inspired to watch some early Yes videos featuring the original guitarist.

We also find time for a quick 2 Pence on a single song we would both like to add to the Cruise to the Edge set list!

  • What is Peter Banks doing on stage?
  • Could he have continued with the band?
  • What did the other members think of him?

Listen and let us know what you think!
