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.

A listen 1993's Silver Sail puts the Wipers legacy in an entirely new context. By 1993, grunge has exploded from the basement to the shopping mall, being pipelined into the mainstream corporate consumer culture.

Written & recorded while Sage lived in Arizona, the desert informs Silver SailâTs dry, desolate & ghostly feel.

Above all Silver SailâTs best moments come from being exactly what it is: Deeply personal, constantly searching & undeniably unique.

In other words, it is a Wipers record.
