I've liked the Slackers for a long time, but lately I've had an increased appreciation for their vocalist, Mr. Vic Ruggiero. Their track "Come Back, Baby" has been in pretty constant rotation for me as of late. It's not their normal brand of ska, but the simpler acoustic guitar sound really allows Ruggiero's voice to be showcased a bit more. I'm really curious about what his solo stuff sounds like, but I haven't been able to get my hands on any of it. Supposedly it's all bluesy acoustics, but the one song he streams on his myspace is a really dreamy organ based instrumental. Even when he's doing the songs in the Slackers' soul ska, this guy still rules.
