Chalar began his musical career in the early 1980s, when he formed Los Violadores ("The Violators", referring to breaking the law, as mentioned in one of their songs, "Violadores de la Ley"); with Gustavo Fossá (Stuka) in electric guitar, Sergio Gramática on drums and Robert "Polish" Zelazek on bass. This 1983-1991 lineup released six studio albums, influenced British punk bands like Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, The Jam and Buzzcocks. Among the best known songs of the band are: "Represión", "Uno, dos ultraviolento", "Más allá del bien, más allá del mal", "Fuera de sektor", "Violadores de la ley" and "Comunicado 166".

With several lineup changes, Pil Trafa was the only permanent member until the final separation in 2011.

In 1992, at the first separation of Los Violadores, Pil Trafa formed Pilsen, a group that only released two albums between 1993 and 1994, and would have production of former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones and Ronald Biggs, The famous "train robber". This band broke up in 1995.

In 1999, together with Stuka form the duo Stku@Pil, and edited an Homonym album and separated in 2000.


In 2004, he released his first solo album, entitled El monopolio de las palabras (in English: The monopoly of the words) and their first single was a cover of Manu Chao, Clandestino.
