goddamn, I don't know what it is but this band is clicking for me in ways they never, ever did before.

I mean I liked them before, but this is different now.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

If you haven't already, pick up The Herd. "Last Chance" and "Wind The Clock Slowly" will rule your life for some time. Hell, so will all of that album.

Same here. I think when I heard them years ago I really liked Nirvana and Nirvana is so much more immediate so their Wipers covers make the originals sound quaint to a 16/17 yr old because they lack the production you're used to. Cut to 15 yrs later and they sound incredible.

This is how it works with the Wipers. I'd hate to know how obsessive I'll get over them by the time I'm 50.

"Someplace Else" is great at sounding other-worldly. Creepy and awesome.

I was looking at all the funny Seattle grunge and The Kingsmen and Hendrix equipment (8 string Hagstrom bass!) at the Experience Music Project, and then I saw Sage's '69 SG with the bigsby and pretty much shit a brick.

Completely great.

A good a place to start as any. I also recommend The Herd which I think I prefer to the first album. The rest go from good 'n' solid (The Circle, Silver Sail) to a bit patchy (Follow Blind, Power In One). As a general rule you'll nae find anything as experimental as YOA or much in the way of variety, but I reckon later Wipers gets an unjustly bad rap sometimes.

There's also that live one called The Wipers that has good material on it but I cannot recall if the quality was that great. There's a Greg Sage solo album called Straight Ahead that's like him and a twelve string or something. I'm not really in a big hurry to reevaluate it.
