The Mooks (Ruggiero & Chardiet) - Myh session
— The Mooks —
Three years ago Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers/Rancid/The Silencers/Sic’n’Mad) invited Simon Chardiet (Simon & The Bar Sinisters/ Bo Diddley/Jon Spencer/The Worms/Mike Mok/Sleepy LaBeef/Andre Williams) up onto the stage and they formed an instant chemistry and a unique sound. Working together as a ece band, singing greasy Doo-Wop harmonies, they formed The Mooks. The duo have been compared to the King Khan and Bbq Show (King Khan is a good friend of Simon) but with a bit of Blues, Ska and Rockabilly flair.
Vic plays rhythm guitar, bass and drums with one foot, tambourine with the other foot and sings with Simon on the guitar and vocals. They do a mix of originals and old 1950’s tunes. Their beat is strong and you can dance to it too ! —coming your way—this All Star band–THE Mooks ! playing their own brand of raw, gutbucket "garageabilly" whenever they can --for your dancing enjoyment !
