Born as Victor Algora’s personal project in the summer of 2004, his first two demos, “Planes de Verano” and “Cosas del Star System” were finalists and winners in some demo competitions (Foc & Sound, Demo Project, Contempopranea) and after several months of gigs, his first official release saw the light of day: a promotional EP including covers of two of his most acclaimed tunes: “Planes de Verano” and “Mr High Heels“. In 2006 he signed with label Dress For Excess, releasing the LP “Planes de Verano” (DFE Records, 2007) and “Nubes Blancas, Sueños Raros” (DFE Records/PIAS, 2008), a remixes/covers CD. In 2010 Javier Castellanos, Nacho Carpejo and Rafa Casquel join the project releasing their third album, “Galimatías”, an LP based on guitars, where electronics becomes more ornamental, and the lyrics are more oblique and intimate. In 2012, now as a proper group, they prepared a self-defined disc of rarities, “El Cadáver Copulador”, basically a collection of instrumentals resulting from experimentation and the beginner’s creative freedom. Meanwhile, also in 2012, they created the songs of “Verbena“, album that came out this year, under their new label El Genio Equivocado.
