Biography

Calva y Nada was one of the most innovative groups of the German Electro Dark Wave from the beginning of the 90’s, when a rebirth of the electro-dark music took place. The group had a great impact when it first appeared and kept the impact as it continued, maintaining the unalterable and original style from their first album “Días Felizes” (1991) until their most recent release, “Schlaf” (1998).

In 1990, after abandoning Glatze des Willens and starting his career alone under the name Calva y Nada, Breñal released his first LP named “El Peste Perverso LLeva Mi Peluca” on the label ZZO Records. Some critics considered the album too experimental, although the music in it has already the deep essence of Calva y Nada’s peculiar style. Lyrically, the album is inspired by the writings of a Calvinist secret correspondent in the hypercatolic Spain of the 16th century. The songs on that album have a sour, dry, serious and rude timber a lot of people have tried to relate to D.A.F. or even Laibach.

After the release of their next album through the label Hyperium, “Días Felizes” (CD, LP), in 1991, Calva y Nada became pretty well known in the German electro scene, which in the beginning of the 90´s experienced an incredible peak that gave place to formations of different styles such as And One, Armageddon Dildos and Das Ich. The album is a quite direct, even dancing sometimes, with lyrics both in German and Spanish and a special treatment for the rhymes, conferring to the interpretations a colder and more metallic tone.
