Vic Ruggiero is a ska, reggae, blues musician of Italian heritage from Bronx, New York. He now lives in New Jersey.

Next to being the singer, organist and songwriter of The Slackers, he is/was involved in various projects like The SKAndalous All-Stars or The Stubborn Allstars.

For many years, Vic has also nurtured a dusty alt country/blues/rock solo project.

He's recorded a slew of solo albums on which he mainly plays the guitar, harmonica and percussion.

Ruggiero is known for his distinct Bronx accent that has a deep, raw quality to it. His lyrics follow several themes, including the apocalypse, dark humor, political distrust, paranoia, murder, irony, romance and loneliness. His songs range from narrative ballads to whimsical tunes inspired by Beat generation poets, authors and songwriters, including Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and John Lennon.


Punk Rock Doll is Lauren Napier.

Never really having roots in one geographic location, Lauren Napier has tailored her many creative interests to suit her ever changing address. Writer. Singer. Cellist. Model. Publicist. These are labels that can be indulged whilst traveling.

Lauren finds solace in the written word, inspiration in the frequencies of her favorite music, and creative tranquility in being able to have her visions and a part of her being captured on film. She has lived in many different stateside locations as well as European countries throughout her life; her studies and experiences have aided her in crafting a creative and global perspective outside of the traditional American schema. A degree at Bowdoin College with a stint at Humboldt University in Berlin found her delving into Medieval Literature and the German language.
