Anyway we are lucky, good music has no time and I (or we) can give the right importance to this band now. Their music was really a mix of rock, blues, country, punk and wathever you want. Guy Kyser' s voice appairs to me like a "polite" version of Jeffrey Lee Pierce disturbing voice. You can accost Thin White Rope music to several others like Dream Syndicate, Television, Neil Young (?) but at the end probably it make no sense. We can consider as a stand alone event in the californian (or world) music scenery of late '80.
Here some contributions to close the gap I had more than 20 years ago...

Here is an experiment; mp3 tracks are recorded directly from Youtube (all tracks from the album are available there). Quality sure is not at the top but it is enough to know the old Peter Godwin's group.
Peter is still active with the group called "nuevo" and on solo works.
