A decade after its departure, El Otro Yo changed alternative rock with a production that turned a more danceable concept based on the punk energy that already characterized the band, being able to create notable (anti?) Pop anthems such as anthem of "The music" or "I do not care to die", and that made it possible to make a reality what until then an independent band in Latin America had not achieved, not without first bringing a group of young people as new fans who accepted the conjunction of noise, electronic and the rebellious adolescent in his fresh philosophy.....~


El Otro Yo is an Argentine alternative rock band, although they have been exploring various genres in all their albums; is originally from Temperley, Province of Buenos Aires, formed in the late 1980s and influenced mainly by Nirvana, Pixies, The Cure, Sonic Youth and The Smashing Pumpkins.1.....~



El Otro Yo was born in the late 1980s and early 1990s, in the town of Temperley, Lomas de Zamora. The brothers Humberto Cristian and María Fernanda Aldana played from the age of five in their house in Témperley with a Creole guitar from their father (who was a singer of boleros and tangos in old cantinas) and a Gem organ. Under the influence of their mother, who was a poet, they began to write their first songs, which at first were simple but no less revolutionary, in the style of "Velvet Underground" and Nico. At school they played together in Revolución, a band in which they covered Sumo, Virus and Miguel Mateos. Then Cristian joined his first punk rock group, "Los Apáticos." Between 1986 and 1987, Cristian played in the band "Los Apáticos" and others such as "El Gregal", where Ricky Rua (former singer of Los Brujos and current drummer of EOY) played drums and María participated in other groups such as "Rebecca" where Ricky Rua also played drums; it was around these years that they decided to form a band together. Maria had read a poem that Arthur Rimbaud wrote at the age of sixteen, I am Another, and the phrase was imprinted in her memory during the process of forming the group.

In January 1988, María commented the phrase to Cristian and El Otro Yo definitely became the name of the group. After several formations in which musicians such as Sergio Ucci (Red Alert), Gabriel Manelli (Los Brujos y Babasónicos) and many more, by 1989, El Otro Yo became a quintet: Cristian en voz, María Fernanda en keyboards and Lee-Chi (former Los Brujos and former manager of El Otro Yo) on guitar. Then Omar Kischinovsky joined on drums and "Pajarito" on bass. The latter lasted a short time. Then María Fernanda started using a Faim guitar that served as a bass guitar.

In 1993 they had a demo with two songs, "Los birds" and "Sex in the elevator. In that year they launched their first self-production in a totally independent way: it was the cassette "Los Hijos de Alien". This cassette was selected as the best album of the year by the rock supplements Sí de Clarín and No de página 12. Cristian distributed the cassettes in record stores. It was the first edition of Besótico Récords. A label called Random, which released Los Brujos, Babasónicos, Martes Menta and Suárez, among others, listened to them and suggested they make an album recorded in a good studio.

At that time, Daniela Cugliandolo also joined the band with her theatrical group «Cold Sweat» which emulated a person who were actually two girls and went up on stage as part of the show, then Daniela continued doing live performances going through different emotions representing the intensity of the music; In the video for "Cut the grass" she can be seen with giant wings and pruning shears, later she joins the group as a keyboardist.

After this, already in 1994, the three members that made up the band at that time - Cristian Humberto Aldana (Guitar and voice), his sister María Fernanda (Bass and voice), and Omar Kischinovsky (Drums) - recorded in Moebio, with the artistic production of Guillermo Piccolini (Pachuco Corpse), his second production and first CD: Traka Traka. Before starting '95, there was a fundamental change in the group's structure, since Omar Kischinovsky, the drummer, decided to move away after having played for almost 3 years with El Otro Yo, and said goodbye to "El Borde" by Temperley. The replacement was made when Raymundo Horacio Fajardo appeared.

That year they recorded Mundo completely independently. That same year they participated in the compilation "Fuck you", an album in tribute to Sumo, performing the song that precisely gives the album its name.

In 1996 they released Los Hijos de Alien on CD, with unreleased versions such as "Lo de Adentro", a song dedicated to Kurt Cobain, the late leader of Nirvana; and a remix of the song "69" belonging to Mundo, in a production of Animated Fantasies. That same year they participated in the "Alternative Rock Festival" at the Ferro stadium, establishing themselves as one of the best bands in the country.

The following year, they surprised by releasing a triple album, Esencia, which is a solo production by each of the three members of EOY, adding more than 70 songs divided into three discs and recorded independently. It all started when María Fernanda told Cristian that she had a lot of his songs but that they didn't suit El Otro Yo and that she would like to edit a cassette.

In 1998, after performing more than 30 Attaque 77 guest shows in the interior of the country, and more than 15 in Capital and Gran Bs. As., A compilation album was released, which extracts the most outstanding songs of Esencia, which It is titled under the name El Otro Yo del Otro Yo and contains 25 songs. They also edit, with Besótico, a book that comes with a solo album by María Fernanda, called Entresueños. In addition Ray took out a book of poetry called "The winged sea".

In 1999 they released Abrecaminos, which was widely accepted by the public, further opening the boundaries of El Otro Yo. At this time, the former bassist of Avant Press, Ezequiel Araujo, joins the group, taking over the keyboards.

At the dawn of the year 2000 they began again and again with the "Barriales Tours", taking their music throughout the province of Buenos Aires and to other parts of the country. They play with success in Chile and Uruguay, where they begin to find more and more followers. At this point the record label created by themselves: Besotico Records is already beginning to actively move. Thus they in turn begin to edit different bands such as Sugar Tampaxxx, Victoria Mil (ex Victoria Abril) and She-Devils.

2000 was key for El Otro Yo. After years of independent struggle, their well-known Endless Tour finally took them to the Obras Stadium. More than five thousand people gathered there.

In 2001, the reissue of his first work, Traka Traka remastered, goes on sale.

After three years of the last studio album, Temperley's band presents Colmena. The album was described as the honeycomb where the musicians concentrated the resulting pollen product that they collected in each place they visited and that they processed, shaped and packaged into a CD of fourteen songs and an interactive video. The new material, which featured the artistic production of Diego Vainer and the presence of several guest musicians, reflects an evolution from the musical point of view and a greater integration of the group in the composition of the songs. Songs like: "Viajero", "Virus", "Calles" or "Me harte" stand out. The album contains the song "Punk", recorded together with Ricky Espinosa (at that time Flema singer),

"I think the album was enriched a lot by spending so much time since the previous album, all the things we lived in the middle were very important, from very happy and new things like playing so far, sharing the stage with very important bands and musicians and also A lot of painful things happened to us and I think that's all on the album and it's important. "
Ray

Two years after the release of the band's most experimental album, the group presents Espejismos, more experimental, in part due to the departure of keyboardist Ezequiel Araujo, who would leave the band after finishing the album and say goodbye to his audience at Quilmes Rock. , a megafestival at the Ferrocarril Oeste stadium, where they shared the stage with bands like Rata Blanca and The Offspring. In Mirages you can see the return of hardcore moments and messages related to the system and society ("Sinners", "New Order" or "Mascot of the system"), which the band showed in its beginnings. However, he also shows calmer sides in songs like "It must change" or "Your angel".

Six years later, Contagating the other's energy - Live at Obras records the best moments of that night on CD and DVD. At the height of Abrecaminos' time, you can see how the punk pulse of Ray Fajardo and the brothers Cristian and María Fernanda Aldana were perfectly mixed with the programming and keyboards of Ezequiel Araujo. The repertoire includes the most celebrated songs of the group (“10.000.000”, “No me importa dying”, “La música”, “EOY”, “Alegría” and a version of “Territorial Pissings” by Nirvana) and some guests both flashy: Heavy metal vocalist Claudio O'Connor on “69” and Diego Arnedo. The album includes “Lobizón”, an unpublished song and, for its part, the DVD includes documentaries about the Endless Tour of 2000 and the backstage of the show in Obras.

For the Espejismos tours, and the place left by Ezequiel on guitar being vacant, Cristian decides to speak with an old acquaintance from his youth in Temperley, Gabriel Guerrisi, former guitarist of Los Brujos, to whom he proposes that he join the band.

In June 2007, Out of Time came out. Produced by the American Billy Anderson (Melvins, Mr. Bungle, Sick Of It All and Los Natas, among others) and Patricio Claypole. The album has a more pop sound than the previous ones. Many songs were interpreted by María Fernanda and it was the first album after Gabriel Guerrisi's incorporation on guitar.

For 2008 the celebration of the 20 years of the band was prepared at the Works Stadium and an international tour. In addition, the group is the first in Argentine rock to launch a shoe model (Black Fin by Vans). In 2009, and after 15 years, Ray Fajardo stopped being the drummer for El Otro Yo to dedicate himself to music production. In his place comes Ricky Rua, former singer of Los Brujos.

That same year, the band is invited by the Pixies and the Smashing Pumpkins to open their shows at the Luna Park Stadium in the City of Buenos Aires. In 2011, they were part of the Unite Tour, which toured all of Mexico for three months.

At the beginning of 2012, they entered the Panda and Cuzco studios to register their tenth studio plate "5.ª. Dimensión", with the production of Cristian Aldana and Gabriel Guerrisi and the art by María Fernanda Aldana. On August 11 of the same year they officially presented the new album at the Vorterix Theater.
25 years of independence (2013)

At the end of 2012 they went on a tour, touring several provinces of the country, presenting their new album, closing the year on December 29 at the Teatro de Flores, along with 2 minutes, Loquero, Expulsados, and Lash Out as a support band. That day saw the surprise of the return of the long-awaited Ezequiel Araujo, who returned to stay as an official member again.

In 2013, the band turns 25 and decides to do thematic recitals to celebrate them. On February 23 at the Vorterix Theater, the celebration of Colmena's 10 years was held, with guests such as Mariano Martínez de Attaque 77, causing a fury in his followers, and providing a very special and emotional show, covering the 14 songs that make up the disco and others. On May 25, at El Teatro de Flores, they gave a recital with songs "just to pogue." On July 13, an unplugged was going to be offered, but it was postponed to September 14 (with DVD recording included), due to health problems of drummer Ricky Rúa. For this reason, on the July and August neighborhood tour, Rúa was temporarily replaced by Joan Sprei, drummer of Lash Out and Los Monos, ex-Eterna Inocencia and student of Ray Fajardo.

In September the album "Plato in the 5th dimension" was released, the official release in 5th Dimension record stores (2012) along with a new song: Plato, produced by Ezequiel Araujo on his return to the band.

The 2 faces of EOY (2014)

Currently the band is touring and presenting their "punk" side and their "alternative" side on various dates. At the beginning of 2014, Ricky Rua stopped being a drummer and instead Joan Sprei entered as a guest musician (who had already replaced him several times due to an illness that Ricky suffered in 2013 and prevented him from performing with the group). Likewise, Gabriel Guerrisi stops playing for a while to dedicate himself to the return of Los Brujos. Finally, Joan Sprei, who had replaced Ricky Rúa in 2013, is confirmed as the band's new drummer after leaving Lash Out.

On Sunday, October 19, the 20 years of Traka Traka will be celebrating in Groove (Palermo). This date has special guests such as Tasmanian Devils and Dangerous Sparrows, as well as the band's first drummer (Omar Kischinovsky) who will be present to play with EOY.
WORLD TOUR 2015

During the month of October the band will be touring the European continent (Spain, France and England) and Japan.
Musical influences

The band recognizes the influence of artists like Sonic Youth, The Cure, The Clash and Pixies, mainly, through Nirvana; and to a lesser extent Claude Debussy, Cocteau Twins, Kraftwerk, Syd Barrett, Tom Waits, Nick Drake and even The Beatles, The Mars Volta, David Bowie, Velvet Underground, Zappa, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, The Pixies, Debussy , The Strokes, Björk, Dover, Sonic Youth, Joy Division, The Smashing Pumpkins, White Stripes, Atari Teenage Riot, Turbonegro, Pavement, Dead Kennedys, The Who, Stooges, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, etc.....~


indie,pop,punk and more. this album marks the band's first u.s. release, and it was a transitional point for them. before this album EOY was a straight punk band but here we hear dance synth beats, melodic acoustic guitar chords, and radio friendly hits like "la musica" "no me importa morir" and "10.000.000" . the band was growing musically and this album will have you singing along and bopping your head along. when a band can do that for an entire album, you know you have a hit. get it!!.....~



El Otro Yo emerged in the early nineties in the town of Temperley, south of the City of Buenos Aires, with the particularity of including two brothers in their formation Cristian and María Fernanda Aldana (guitar and bass, respectively, in addition to singing both in different themes) with them in the beginning was the drummer Omar Kischinovsky who would leave the group a few years later to make way for Raymundo Fajardo. In 1993 his first cassette Los Hijos de Alien was released in a completely independent way , from which some songs would emerge for his first official CD Traka - Traka (1994) which was followed by Mundo(1995), from the beginning it was a difficult group to classify, with punk influences and alternatives from groups with a heyday in the eighties such as Sonic Youth and Pixies.

But it would not be until 1999 with Abrecaminos that the group achieved the mass and true diffusion. The inclusion of keyboardist Ezequiel Araujo, ex Avant Press, added electronic sounds and samplers to the group's sound, which enriched the distorted guitars and the screaming cries of Cristian that were already a registered trademark in its beginnings.

The great diffusion both on the radio and on their videos "La Música" and "No Me Importa Morir" gave them the true leap in quality. But these are not the only interesting thing that we come across when listening to Abrecaminos songs with beautiful melodies such as "Microcosmos", "Violet" and "La Ola" also say present and invite you to enjoy the sound of El Otro Yo.

A year after Abrecaminos, with a growing number of followers and its own label "Besotico Records", the group released the live album Contagiariendo de la Energía del Otro and released works by new groups such as Victoria Mil, She Devils, among others. ....PERSIMUSIC....~
