WIPERS - Land Of The Lost 1986

Happy Birthday my Love! I still miss you and the today posts are all dedicated to you.

Just like last year on this day, it is tradition to honor a band that has made punk rock history and their sound was always around us and the Wipers are my absolute favorite band from the States. I recommend to buy any other album without hesitation. Land Of The Lost (review) shows a new phase of the band. The songs are still strong but I miss a bit of the rough & snotty sound of the early recordings. Without doubt, the fourth album is another highlight with some energy and should be in every record collection. I guess that see some so. Also recommended Sage's two solo albums Straight Ahead and Sacrifice For Love. He played all acoustic, electric and bass guitar parts, only accompanied by a drummer. A great musician. Enjoy.

Now I have to do things I have to do today & I come back with some jewels. Watch out!

  1. Wipers are awesome! Do you have any more punk by other Northwest American bands, especially around Seattle?

    Do you look for something special?

    1. Not in particular, but I live in Seattle & I don't know much about 70's & 80's punk here. Wipers are famous, though. Ever listen to Helen Keller? Their "Surfin' With Steve And E.D. Amin' 7'' is genius.

    2. Yeah, I know this tune, it's a fucking standout.
      It's the only one I have..... to be honest, I'm not an expert of seattle punk or northwest section so I can't really help. But I recommend The Lewd or Bikini Kill, both damn good.
