New Vic Ruggiero Documentary

This video has been up since April, but it’s news to me- so now it’s news for you.  This short interview based documentary was directed by Marie Le Claire, whose name I recognized instantly.  I remember a few years ago, The Slackers announced a concert documentary and even released this trailer.  I contacted Le Claire and she says that the project was never finished, and it sounds like we’ll have to settle for the short we have.

It really is a great video, too.  Here’s Vic in the studio talking mostly about his dad, and weighing the pros and cons of working as a musician.  There’s some great concert and rehearsal footage between the interview segments, and some faces from Slackers past.  I love getting a glimpse of their cramped rehearsal space- oh and Vic does a Mick Jagger impression.

Here it is in two parts:

Of course, none of this has anything to do with The Slackers: A Documentary by Ben Levin

Or… The Slackers Live And Direct From The Flamingo Cantina, both of which are available here.
