Wipers - Over The Edge (1983)

Woke up this morning and the first thing I did was put on this album, made breakfast, coffee, did the dishes and then replayed "Over The Edge" is that good.  Wipers are a three piece from Portland,Oregon and they played some great punk rock to knock the flannels right off your back before even put them on.  Expect nothing-less then superb guitar work on this LP with tone changes and backing distortion that scream solidarity with vocals carry over that lazy punk attitude, into a nice post-punk vision.  These guys come highly recommended from idols like Nirvana, Melvins, Dinosaur Jr and Poison Idea so you know they have something going on.  "Over The Edge" is the Wipers third release and next time I head back to the record shop I am going to pick up one of their first two releases.  Do not sleep even longer on this band.
