OKTOBER – “DIE PARISER COMMUNE” (1977)
Here’s one I know next to nothing about — and sometimes that’s half the magic, try innit?
This is another Krautrock nugget, seek a double LP with a single track taking up each side, and healthy dose of cranky narration in German.

As far as not knowing what the narration is about in the slightest — I don’t think that really matters. If you’re willing to give this one a whirl in the first place, then you’ll get past it, no problem.
I believe this was one that I picked up from the always-spectacular Mutant Sounds blog — and when I went back to check to see what they’d written about the record, they only had this to say:
Sorry no infos found in English. This is their 2nd release.
