Jon Moss (drums | vocals)

After early outings with The Clash, The Damned, and Adam & The Ants, Jon Moss is of course best known as the drummer and co-founder of 80s pop phenomenon Culture Club. He also played in Basti's previous band Yeah in the late 1990s before now forming Ridiculous. Needless to say, it was Jon who came up with the name.
