Gustavo Cordera


Gustavo Edgardo Cordera is an Argentine rock musician, best known as the frontman of the band Bersuit Vergarabat.

Cordera's musical career began in 1988, when he was studying communications at the Universidad Nacional de Lomas de Zamora and running his own auto dealership, Cordera Bros. In the spring of that year, he visited Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval and was inspired to become a musician. Returning to Lanus, he sold his dealership, abandoned his studies, and shaved his head, an act which earned him the sobriquet Pelado ("Bald").

At la Casa de las Artes de la Vieja Avellaneda, a meeting place for musicians and artists, Cordera met keyboardist Juan Subira and bassist Pepe Cespedes, and together they produced the songs "Masturbacion en masa" ("Masturbation en masse") and "Hociquito de Raton" ("Little Rat-Snout"). A year later, along with drummer Carlos Martin and guitarist Charly Bianco, they formed Bersuit, whose name was soon lengthened to Bersuit Vergarabat. During the early nineties they were joined by guitarist Oscar Righi, keyboardist Raul Pagano, and vocalist Ruben Sabrinas. In 1992 they released the album Y Punto, and in 1993, Asquerosa Alegria. Both albums were well received.
