descriptionVinyl LP pressing of this 1993 album from the Portland-based punks. 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 Post Punk. A listen to Silver Sail puts the Wipers legacy in an entirely new context. By 1993, Grunge had exploded from the basement to the shopping mall, being pipelined into the mainstream corporate consumer culture. Written and recorded while Sage lived in Arizona, the desert informs Silver Sail's dry, desolate and ghostly feel. 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.
