(Meatball and Sushi Party, 2009) and Kepi Ghoulie (The Dark Ages, 2009) and Don't Feed The Cats in Iraq (2010). Over the years, various unofficial CD-Rs and bootlegs of his work have been made available through Vic and his website. Ruggiero is pretty much shaping up to be "the man" when it comes to finding someone to play keyboard instruments in the north American punk scene. His guest appearances include famous artists like Rancid, The Transplants or Roger Miret And The Disasters.
He was also involved in a side project going by the name of "The Silencers" with Tim Armstrong of Rancid and others. The Silencers have oficially released one song ("Policeman") on the Hellcat label sampler "Give 'em The Boot I". Ruggiero has writing credit, does backing vocals and plays the organ on this song. Other songs of the Silencer sessions are to be found on Rancid's Life Won't Wait Demos which have leaked to the internet.
