1 - WIPERS - BOX SET - (CD) 
ZENO


The Wipers are often referred to as Portlands first punk band. But calling the band punk totally ignores and underestimates what Greg Sage and crew were doing from 1997 onward. Acknowledged by many over the years (including Nirvanas Kurt Cobain who curated a tribute album to the Wipers), the bands albums have been curiously unobtainable by many. The Wipers Box Set collects the first three albums (and a few obscurities) at a more-than-reasonable price for a 51 song 3 CD Set.

3 - WIPERS - OUT TAKES - (LP) 
JACKPOT


Featuring 13 rare and unreleased cuts, "Out Takes" collects unheard songs, demo recordings, and alternate mixes. Handpicked by Greg Sage, the songs date from 1979-1983, the same years as their landmark first three LPs. Side one focuses on the era of their debut LP, "Is This Real?", a desperate, energetic masterpiece, considered by Kurt Cobain as the blueprint for grunge. Included are raw, sparsely arranged 4-track demos, two unreleased songs from 1979, and the forceful, youthful track "Rebel With A Cause" which was cut from the LP. The second half of the LP presents a live recording of "Mistaken Identity", originally intended for the Wipers third LP, "Over the Edge", a rare B-side, and alternate mixes of songs from "Youth of America". "Out Takes" is an incredible new window into the career of one of the greatest American punk bands.

4 - WIPERS - OVER THE EDGE - (LP) 
JACKPOT


The bleak, hard-driven third LP by the Wipers (originally released in 1983) offers Greg Sage at his most chased and breathless, lashing out with sharp staccato notes as if melody were his only defense. While their debut LP provided the blueprint for grunge, and their second album recast the band as one of Americas premier postpunk bands, its Over The Edge that best exemplifies the Wipers sound. The jagged, effortless guitar lines, the paranoid lyrics and raw-throated vocals and the taut, unified rhythms that define their sound bleed together most clearly on this LP, and it stands as both the best entry point for new fans and the most prevalent favorite of diehards. Remastered from the original tapes by Greg Sage, here is the reissue of Over the Edge, pressed on audiophile grade vinyl and packaged in a deluxe, tip-on sleeve.One of the most passionate and influential punk records ever.

5 - WIPERS - POWER IN ONE - (LP) 
JACKPOT


The Wipers' 'Power In One' became the last final Wipers recordings. Recorded in 1998 by Greg Sage, all tracks were recorded through vacuum tubes. "Guitar leeds that dazzle, frighten, and prick the senses, like Jimi Hendrix sans the showy bits and hyper-blues base. This remarkable talents work as a guitarist is without peer. 'Power In One' is another gale force wind." ~Jack Rabid (All Music Guide).

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Fall 02. Power In One 03. Shaken 04. Misleading 05. Rocket 06. I'll Be Around 07. Still Inside Of Me 08. Ship Of Dreams 09. Rest Of My Life 10. Losers Revenge 11. Take It Now 12. Stay Around 13. What's Wrong? 14. Too Many Strangers

10 - WIPERS - YOUTH OF AMERICA - (LP) 
JACKPOT


Simply obliterating any conception of the Wipers as a mere punk band, Greg Sage released this follow-up to 'Is This Real?' in 1981 - a sophisticated, overwhelming response to the evil times marked by the turn of the decade. Broken up into six long songs, 'Youth Of America' is a much colder, harrowing experience than the teen angst of their debut. Vocally, Sage comes off as sleep-deprived and forsaken, snarling not only at his own predicament but at the predicament of the entire world.It's a fitting commentary that the exacting, post-punk legends Mission of Burma and squalling, noisy thugs The Melvins both saw fit to cover the track. Completely remastered from the original tapes, pressed on audiophile vinyl, and housed in a heavy tip-on sleeve.
