The band's strength lies in the semantic power of its lyrics, which discuss different topics such as politics, drugs and women, but always from a philosophical and existential point of view. The band represented a counter-cultural paradigm, reinforced and supported by its truly independent production nature. Read Full BioPatricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota was a rock band originally from La Plata, Argentina in 1976. Their tours in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s drew a cult-like following that mirrored Grateful Dead frenzy in the United States.
The band's strength lies in the semantic power of its lyrics, which discuss different topics such as politics, drugs and women, but always from a philosophical and existential point of view. The band represented a counter-cultural paradigm, reinforced and supported by its truly independent production nature.
The band maintained a no-TV contact policy, a very seldom and sparse contact with the press and sporadic radio interviews. However, its music always had and currently maintains significant airplay in argentine radiowaves. Patricio Rey is a fictional character or group consciousness, and not a real person or member of the group.
It is considered as one of the most important bands of argentine rock, and one of the outstanding acts during the end of 1980s and 1990s. Together with Sumo, Soda Stereo and Seru Giran, Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota is considered one of the most influential rock bands of its time.
The song lyrics are characterised by the use of metaphores and multiple possible interpretation. Musically, they are noticeable for their creative use of instruments - including violin, trumpet, piano, harmonica and percussion - on top of their classic lineup of guitar, bass, sax and drums. They have included several musical styles throughout their career, including rock, hard rock, pop rock, rock 'n' roll and blues. They also experimented with samplers and audio games.
El Indio Solari, the lead singer, embodies the one-man-show mystique followed by his powerful guitar player Skay Beilinson. Other members of the group have left the band and have been replaced (drums: Piojo Abalos; saxophone: Willy Crook; guitar: Tito Fargo D'Aviero). The members of the group were reluctant to do any interviews during their career.
The band broke up one year after the release of Momo Sampler, in 2001, but several former members are still active and pursuing solo careers.
The final line-up of the band was:
Indio Solari - voice
Eduardo Skay Beilinson - guitar
Daniel Semilla Bucciarelli - bass guitar
Walter Sidotti - drums
Sergio Dawi - saxophone
Hernán Aramberri - sampler
Carmen Castro a.k.a. "La Negra Poly" - manager
Ricardo Cohen a.k.a. "Rocambole" - artist (as stated in the official site)

Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota Track 1/20
by Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota
Fue unos meses a Caseros why su Strato roja
Se hizo el torbellino que hoy suena en la radio.
La ceniza no caía desde su cigarro
why estaba en sus ojos desarmándote.
Alquiló una rana rubia, tibia why haragana.
Se moría de ganas de matarla.
Una linda damita de Concordia,
El más bello fuselaje que jamás lustró.
Le hizo un par de promesas imprudentes
why así fue que de ella se aburrió.
Las minitas aman los payasos
why la pasta de campeón.
El pibe de los astilleros nunca se rendía.
Tuvo un palacete por un par de días.
Rapiñaba montado a los containers
El maldito amor que tanto miedo da.
Fue por una lluvia que realmente moje,
Que pusiera fin a su aventura.
Un final feliz para pimpollos
Allí estaba, al fin, acechándolo.
Ciertos reyes no viajan en camello.
Ellos andan al tranco del amor.
Esos tipos soplan con el viento
Al rebaño why su temor.
