Following the breakup of the band One Free Fall, vocalist Ken MacNeil and bassist Jim Moore continued working together, hooking up with former Doughboys member Scott McCullough (guitar) and Mitch Perkins (drums) to record the EP Wake Me in 1994. A video for the song Wake Me would become a minor hit on MuchMusic. Released on Handsome Boy Records, the EP was popular on Canadian campus radio, and led to a major label distribution deal with BMG Records for their full length album Fluke in 1995. Led by the hit single “Misogyny”, which featured a video consisting of clips from Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce’s film Hustler White as well as Canadian singer Danko Jones, Fluke was the band’s commercial breakthrough, also spawning the single “California”, and earning a Juno Award nomination for Best Alternative Album. The album was produced by Chris Wardman, who also played guitar on the tracks “Groovy Dead” and “California”. In 1996, the band contributed a cover of “Let’s Break Robert Out of Jail” to the compilation album A Tribute to Hard Core Logo. Also in 1996 the song “Punk” was included on soundtrack to Chris Farley’s movie Black Sheep. The band’s follow-up album, Sophomoric, was released in 1997, including the singles “Empty Cell” and “Oh No Joe”. Perkins left the band that year and was replaced by John Lalley. Perkins left the group due to creative differences and released an electronic album independently with Andrew Massey under the name “Blu Pernu”.. In 1998, Rusty released Out of Their Heads. The band broke up two years later, playing their final show on November 25, 2000. In April 2011, Chart magazine reported that Rusty would be re-uniting for the 2011 NXNE festival.
