Raw grunge power from Canada’s underground scene
Rusty has its origins in Nova Scotia band One Free Fall – founded by Ken MacNeil (vocals), Sandy Graham (guitar), Jim Moore (bass) and Bob Vespaziani (drums) – who moved out to Toronto in the late 80s. After signing with Handsome Boy Records, the lads saw little success despite releasing an album ("Mud Creek") and collaborating with Canadian punk icon Art Bergmann on a cover of Neil Young’s "Prisoners of Rock ‘n’ Roll" for the tribute album "Borrowed Tunes". One Free Fall disbanded in 1994 and led to MacNeil, Moore and Vespaziani teaming up with Scott McCullough (formerly of Doughboys) to give rise to Rusty. Their EP of the same year, "Wake Me", was a hit on campus radios across Canada and resulted in a major distribution deal with BMG Records for their debut album, "Fluke", which came out the following year. Rusty established a connection with impressionable teenage misfits through incredibly raw live shows brimming with rock ‘n’ roll rage thanks to die-hard guitars, blistering drums and MacNeil’s devilishly grungy voice. Over two decades on and they’re bringing it like never before. Check it out by using StubHub to buy Rusty tickets. They’re available right now or, if you can’t make the show, you can sell them here too!
Juno recognition and NXNE reunion
Driven by the scorching hit single "Misogyny", "Fluke" was to be the band’s breakout success and earned them a Juno Award nomination in 1996’s Best Alternative Album category. Another two albums later ("Sophomoric" in 1997 and "Out of Their Heads" in 1998), Rusty decided to part ways and played a farewell show at The Opera House Toronto in 2000. Although they reunited for 2011’s NXNE Music Festival and dropped a fresh new album in 2018, so it looks like they simply can’t get enough of dedicated fans like you!
