Buried Treasures: Rusty – “Groovy Dead,” “Wake Me,” and “Misogyny”
Hi everyone. Last night I was toggling between Dion and In Flames, specifically “I Wonder Why” and “Trigger.” It doesn’t make much sense to me either.
On the album front, I reacquainted myself with Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 classic, Born To Run. Individually, the songs don’t work for me. Sure, the title track can, at times, but as a collective whole, I love this record. It’s definitely one of the more legendary album covers. RIP Clarence Clemons.
Today’s Buried Treasure piece features a long-forgotten and long-inactive Canadian band named Rusty. They’ve toured with No Doubt, Bush, Everclear and many others. I bought their album Fluke after hearing the single “Wake Me.” I believe I heard it on the radio, but I’m not entirely sure. It’s loaded with gems. I highly advise checking it out. And, if you’re interested, you can download , free of charge, in MP3 format, with a no-risk free trial of eMusic here.
It’s an awesome rock record. Undeniable.
