What did they do next – part 10b – Steve Howe PLUS interview with Danny from prog/fusion group Marbin – 422

The_Bodast_Tapes featuring Steve Howe

This week, Mark and I enjoyed listening to The Bodast Tapes featuring Steve Howe in the second part of our examination of what Steve did after leaving Yes following the Drama tour. We also had the pleasure of speaking to Danny Markovitch who plays saxophone in the progressive/fusion band Marbin who are returning for the second time to the Cruise to the Edge next month. He explains what his band is all about and how they developed their music from their roots in Israel to the US.

If you are a YMP Producer or Patron you should already know what the top secret project is which we have kicked off in March. Everyone else will just have to wait and see – or become a Patron themselves of course – you are most welcome to join us.

  • What’s the actual Bodast music like?

Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and

Interesting conversation about Bodast. I was surprised to enjoy the music more than I thought I would. Of course, I noted, as did you, that the opening of Nether Street uses the chord progression that went on to become Wurm. What you did not notice (unless I missed your comments) was the tiny snippet that would later be found in Close to the Edge. Listen to the track, Black Leather Gloves, at around the 1:50 mark and tell me you don’t recognize that… I am listening to the album on Spotify. Perhaps your version was different.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed Bodcast – If looked at in a different way , you could almost do a after ‘What they did next’? to ‘What did they do before”? ie before they joined YES

Kevin and Mark those were great shows about Bodast. I was amazed by the conversations. A lot of dots connected with how all of these different musicians, producers, and others have crossed paths with each other over the years. You two guys are like an endless Tor of facts and trivia about Yes and music in general!

Hi Michael,
Thank you so much for your kind words. This podcast for me, and I’m sure Kevin as well, is something I enjoy doing very much…so the research is fun to do and I learn quite a lot myself. The great thing with a band that has so many former members is that there is a lot of extra material to check out.
Thanks again for your support.
