Oktubre is the second studio album by Argentine rock band Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota, released in 1986.[1][2] It is the band's last album to feature to Piojo Ávalos, Tito D'Aviero and Willy Crook as band members, who left the band after the tour between late 1986 and early 1987. Oktubre is ranked at #4 in the Argentine version of Rolling Stone's "Los 100 Mejores Discos del Rock Nacional" (The 100 Greatest Records in Argentine Rock).

Background[edit]

The album cover and his concept are inspired by the Russian Revolution from the early Twentieth Century. Also, the sound incorporating elements of post-punk influence in the new wave of the 1980s, imposed by groups as The Cure, Joy Division, The Police and others. The band garnered some airplay with "Jijiji" and "Ya nadie va a escuchar tu remera", as a result, Patricio Rey pursued a more melodic, radio friendly direction on their future albums.

Oktubre was officially presented on 18 and 25 October at Paladium in front of 1200 fans. For these concerts, the keyboardist Andrés Teocharidis participated in both shows. Some CD bootlegs from these shows were released with Teocharidis, his only contribution to the band, because he died in a car accident in early 1987.

Hailed by critics and fans as the band's masterwork, the album has some of the group's signature songs, such as "Jijiji", ″Ya nadie va a escuchar tu remera″, ″Fuegos de octubre″ and "Motor Psico".
