Anyone know why they were renamed Yaz in the US? -- Funky Monkey  (talk)  09:27, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Thee was a band called by the same name (Yazoo) there. To avoid a lawsuit they are called Yaz there. feydey 16:08, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
maybe you mean Yazz, late 80s singer unrelated to Yazoo? she had a hit single "the only way is up"

Why would he mean that, since she appeared 6 years later? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:03, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

What is up with this illustration? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki Wikardo (talkcontribs)


Not that I don't appreciate the illustration, but, would it not be preferable to have an actual picture of Yazoo? Is none available? GassyGuy 17:20, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Agree, would it be possbile to change it? There must be a more appropriate pic out there Kalied04 (talk) 01:44, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Yazoo's initial foray into the US was disastrous when they received a £3.5 million lawsuit threat over the band's name.[5]

Was it really disastrous to simply be 'threatened' with a lawsuit? They simply changed the name for the US market. Issue resolved. ◦◦derekbd◦my talk◦◦ 17:46, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Years active[edit]

Don't add years 1998-1999 & 2008-2012 to this section. Years active mean when they are performing or recording.

In the years 1998-1999 the record label released a best of (with probably permission of the band). In 2010 the company released a live album

Alison & Vince performed only in 2008 (+ released a boxset) & at the Mute Short Circuit gig in 2011. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:08, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
