Wipers Rarities

This underground Wipers material has only been available through back-alley bootleg channels for the last 25 years, but now these Wipers Rarities are respectable at last, with an official release on the Bang! label. A full 2 LPs of live shows, B-sides, compilatio...view item »

Over The Edge

There are punk bands and there are grunge bands and there are The Wipers. It has everything you need for a great rock performance -- an insane guitar tone (P-90s), a crazed voice, an adrenalized drummer, and great songs with stupid lyrics. Who could ask for more? If you're just getting into this band this is where you might want to start (this or I...view item »

Is This Real?

Unquestionably Portland's most well-loved punk group, the Wipers formed in the late 1970s and in 1980 released their debut LP, "Is This Real?"- twelve songs of stabbing, jittery guitar, snapped vocals, and unabashed teen angst. Full of desperation and yearning, the LP has stood as a blueprint for wretched youth for over 25 years. In the ...view item »

Better Off Dead

Originally released in 1978 Better Off Dead was the first recordings made by Portland, Oregan punk rockers Wipers. Whilst being heralded as being highly influential they hardly played live and were mainly a DIY studio band, only being discovered through cassette compilations and later Nirvana playing li...view item »

Youth of America

Nice re-issue of the second album from Greg Sage's post-punk greats. This is where the band got all cold and nihilistic and spread six long tracks that burn with a fiery intensity across the LP. It's a harsh angular sound that influenced Mission of Burma amongst others and led Kurt Cobain to consider it one of t...view item »

The Herd

While classic Wipers overall, there are a lot of moments here where the guitar goes melodically sailing off in new directions, and the songs are really quite different from their other releases. As usual only the best of the high energy assault one expects from this band. The only thing I find wrong with this album is that some of the tracks sound...view item »

Silver Sail

These guys are a better bet than the majority of the grunge bands they influenced. Silver Sail is a little different from other Wipers material, to me at least. There's a reflective, more relaxed feel to it that makes for great driving music. There's definitely the influence of the southwest here, in a general way, and the whole idea of extra-terre...view item »

Power In One

Power in One is another phenomenal onslaught of singular music, made by someone who emerged just before the dawn of the punk era. Having predated it, Greg Sage merely straddled it, keeping his solitary, idiosyncratic space. As with all his other records, the listener is held in his insidious grip on first play, a hold that grows more persuasive ...view item »
