This week there was some fairly significant Yes news – The Quest is the new studio album which will be released on 1st October 2021. Mark and I will be talking about this, as you can imagine, in our two pence later in the episode.
Before that, we finish off our examination of The Syn’s 2005 album, Syndestructible which we are taking as what Chris Squire did next in the Yes hiatus period. Stay tuned for our thoughts on that and get involved yourself by adding your comments on the show notes for this week.
- What did Chris Squire do in the hiatus?
- Why was it a return to former times for him?
- What was the result and was it worth it?
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

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 archive.org

I’m thinking that maybe this is the first time you’ve wanted to get through the main subject matter as quickly as possible and commence with the “Two Pence!”
I really love that Syn album, and saw them & met them in Cleveland on the tour. It should be in every Yes fan’s collection.
As for the new Yes album, to respond to some of your conjecture, I’ve been told that a music video for a “single” will be released.
And that there’s a reason all the songs are not on 1 cd- all will be revealed. I also love Roger’s painting. It’s darker than most of his work. As for whether that’s a standing man rock formation (a homage to Chris), Roger isn’t saying. More info will be released regularly before Oct., so it’s a good Yes time.
I find myself interested in seeing how the cracks in those rock formations might line up with a couple of previous album covers.
LOL. We’ll see. I was with Roger when a man laid down the covers of Tales & Relayer. It was on the Cruise to the Edge, in Roger’s art gallery. Roger said it’s a coincidence & I believe him- he’d never seen them put side by side before, and was quite surprised. We talked more about it at dinner that day in the sushi restaurant. Of course, it’s the front of Tales & back of Relayer. Plus, the covers don’t line up perfectly. One is laid slightly lower than the other album to make them look like they match. Close but no cigar…
So glad you enjoyed the Syndistructable album (yes it’s a dodgy title) I have always loved it. I small aside, you wondered last week what was Gary Husband’s involvement at the ‘showcase’ gig at the Marque. He was at the side of the stage triggering samples. Clearly they could not recreate the multi vocals (such as Breaking down walls etc) and so they used some backing tapes. They were to be triggered by their manager but he couldn’t get the timing right. During the rehearsals one of the Stacey brothers phoned Gary and before you know it he turned up. I was one of the lucky few people who were in attendance all day as they rehearsed the day prior to the gig. A memory I will always treasure.
I hadn’t previously paid any attention to Syndestructible, but thanks to your podcast, I will now.
