Wipers

Profile:
Wipers was a recording project formed in 1977 by Greg Sage in Portland, OR. Originally conceived as a studio band, they rarely played live and maintained a DIY ethos that kept them relatively unknown outside their hometown apart from appearances on underground cassette compilations in Europe. It wasn't until a relatively well known band called Nirvana paid tribute to the band by performing cover versions of their songs that Wipers gained a worldwide audience.

Very good band. Youth Of America remains their masterpiece in my eyes. SAGE is one of the unsung guitar heroes of all time. What a player! (And quite a good singer, too).

I'm with you Harspistolen. The Wipers and Greg Sage, for that matter, were quite well known by people who listened to punk and hardcore even in the U.S. This bio is not accurate.

Not so sure about that bio. If they weren't known outside of their hometown until Nirvana covered them,why are there UK and German pressings from as early as 84?
