Brothers Chip and Tony Kinman formed Rank and File after splitting up with hardcore punk band, The Dils and added The Nuns guitarist Alejandro Escovedo to the lineup. Sundown was the exceptional debut released in 1982. The band combined a mixture of punk rock and classic country together to create an artfully robust album with themes ranging from heartache to blue-collar woes. Hailed for its strong writing and harmonies, Sundown was ahead of the curve and would become a key influence for future alternative country acts.
