Rank and File
Rank and File - "Amanda Ruth"
Rank and File - "I Don't Go Out Much Anymore"
Chip and Tony Kinman formed the cowboy punk outfit Rank and File in the early 80's and released one great album, Sundown, in 1982, and a couple of okay albums over the next five years before calling it quits.
I got to hang out with the band in '82 when I worked for a student-run production company that brought the band to my college for a free concert. They were nice guys, still trying to figure out if their sound would appeal to anyone. What a great year that was at my college campus... We had free noon-time concerts from X, The Knack, Berlin, and the Blasters. I skipped way too many classes to see those shows. The Kinmans are still around with Cowboy Nation.
