(Oct 2, 2012): Wipers – Up Front

From the 1979 album, Is It Real?  The Wipers started out as an underground band from Portland, Oregon.  The band’s first single, “Better Off Dead,” released in 1978, reflected the sensibilities of punk, but the band, led by Greg Sage, was much more than punk.  Even on this debut LP, which has the band at its rawest, you can hear the emergence of post-punk, independent music.
