OK so today I'm going to talk the wipers. The Wipers were a punk/proto grunge band from portland OR. They formed in 1977 and released their first single "Better Of Dead" the following year. In my opinion The Wipers are one of the most underrated bands of the 80's and 90's and should be recognized as trailblazers of grunge and the Seattle scene (even though they weren't from Seattle Kurt Cobain cited them as a big influence on his music and he even covered one of their songs). Greg Sage the guitarist and singer says that he thrives in his obscurity because he gets to do whatever he wants with no pressure from major record labels which I think is pretty cool. Anyways here is a video of nirvana doing the Wipers song D-7. Enjoy!
