After a successful assault on the San Francisco punk scene with their late 70's band The Dils, Chip and Tony Kinman, along with guitarist Alejandro Escovido, landed in Austin, TX to get their new project Rank and File off the ground. Drummer Slim Evans came aboard shortly after their arrival.
In 1982 their auspicious debut album Sundown was released. And the 'cowpunk' subgenre was set in motion.
Fast forward to 2023, Happyland founder E.J. Wells decides to do a fragrance collaboration with Chip Kinman, to honor the impact that Sundown had on him musically.
Turns out that Chip likes a lot of the old school fragrances from back in the day, so the path was clear!
"Chip and I did some talking back in 2001 when I was recording my album Rhyolite, which was heavily influenced by Chip and Tony Kinman's bands Rank and File, Blackbird, and Cowboy Nation." He was a gentleman then, and he's a gentleman now"- E.J. Wells
Introducing Happyland Sundown
An intoxicating blend of citruses, purple florals, various secret spices, various musks, ozonic notes, suede, lavender, and patchouli.
Chip likes it, E.J. likes it, the Happyland team likes it, and we'll all bet dollars to donuts that you'll like it too.
