Brothers Chip and Tony Kinman formed Rank & File after splitting up with hardcore punk band, The Dils, and added Nuns' guitarist Alejandro Escovedo to the lineup. Sundown was the exceptional debut released in 1982. The band combined a misture 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. 150-gram translucent red vinyl.
