If you research a little bit, the story behind the Buggles-Yes connection is even more bizarre.
Yes had more or less ceased to exist after "Drama"; the album following "Drama" (I just can't remember its title) was originally meant to be a kind of Buggles album, called "Cinema", with Chris Squire as a kind of supporter or how his role was.
Anderson much later joined in, originally just for inging, I think.

On the "Yes Years" box set there are two additional songs from that era. Wikipedia says these have been published on the remaster, too.

Regarding "video killed the radio star" there seems to be an additional version on this album as well (found on www.mazon.de ) :
