Formed in 1967 as a psychedelic electronic duo featuring Dan Taylor on drums and Simeon on a homemade synthesizer consisting of 12 oscillators (and an assortment of sound filters, telegraph keys, radio parts, lab gear and a variety of second hand electronic junk), Silver Apples quickly gained a reputation as New York's leading underground musical expression.
Their pulsating rhythmic beats with the use of electronics laid the groundwork for what would become Krautrock.
Silver Apples was released in 1968 and still remains an innovative and revolutionary album. Their highly influential sound has influenced countless bands from Stereolab, Beastie Boys, b and more.

Depending on whom you ask, the early Wipers recordings either innovated punk, invented what came to be popularly known as grunge, or initiated the blueprint for DIY postpunk.Rather than scramble to cash in, Sage ignores the outside world and digs deeper into his singular and solitary sense of self and again creates an album ahead of trends and outside of time. Written and recorded while Sage lived in Arizona, the desert informs Silver Sail's dry, desolate and ghostly feel.
A listen to the 1993 release Silver Sail puts the Wipers legacy in an entirely new context. It's 1993 and grunge has exploded from the basement to the shopping mall, being pipelined into the mainstream corporate consumer culture. Sage and his Wipers watch as their influence is diluted from passionate teenage revolt to soft drink commercial.
The downtempo pieces are positively haunted by it. Stand-out tracks such as Y I Came, and the albums centerpiece, the epic and lumbering The Prisoner countervail the heavy guitar sounds of 1993 and exhibit traits of the then burgeoning slow-core scene.
Side Two is all plodding surf rock, eerie soundtracks and jangly punk echoing an Athens, GA sound through the filter of Northwestern gloom and 90's detachment. Above all Silver Sail's best moments come from being exactly what it is: Deeply personal, constantly searching and undeniably unique. In other words, it is a Wipers record.

The classic Wipers sound: Fast, Fuzzy, Moody.
Re-mastered from the original master tapes. Released in 1996.
The impact of the early Wipers records on the musical scene of the 1990's cannot be overemphasized. The majority of popular music was steeped in their influence, leaving the Wipers in the unenviable position of attempting to find solid footing in the landscape they had forged.
After 1993's slow, haunting and introspective Silver Sail, Sage and crew returned to the classic Wipers sound with The Herd. Originally issued in 1996 on Tim/Kerr (and nearly impossible to find on vinyl for over a decade) the album is fast, fuzzy and moody. Drenched in rocket-fuel guitar tones, the paranoid beauty that spilled forth from the early recordings resonates on blasts such as Green Light Legion and No Safe Place.
On The Herd's slower pieces, such as Wind The Clock Slowly, Sage's urgent and virtuosic leads peel away at the psyche leaving only underlying and once hidden truths. Even as the most successful bands of the time were raking in mountains of money ripping off the Wipers, Sage and his band were crafting something new, unexpected and powerful. Something that evokes such musical excitement that it borders on panic.
17 years and 10 studio albums later, that feeling so prevalent on the first record is masterfully woven into the very fabric of The Herd.

13 rare and unreleased cuts from 1979-1983 hand picked by Greg Sage.
Re-mastered from the original master tapes.
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.

Historic 2nd LP by this influential Portland punk band.
Remastered from the original master tapes Released in 1981.
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.
