The Dils

Profile:
Once labelled as "California's The Clash", The Dils were part of the very first wave of the L.A. punk scene. They formed in Carlsbad in San Diego County before moving first to San Francisco - where bassist Tony Kinman was briefly in The Avengers - then to L.A. In 1977 What? Records released their debut 7" "I Hate The Rich / You're Not Blank". After a two year gap, Chip and Tony Kinman, who were the axis of the trio, returned with a three-sided EP, Made In Canada, which was a far more melodic affair, offering hints at their future as country-punk band Rank & File. They split up in 1980.
