Wipers Is This Real?

Release Date January 24, 2007

Catalog No 4019099

Formats LP

Debut LP by this influential Portland punk band, re-issued by Jackpot Records. Re-mastered from the original master tapes. Originally released in 1980, this is a limited edition vinyl repress.

Historical note: Sub Pop reissued this record on CD in 1993, catalog number SP190. That CD is long out of print. It contained three bonus tracks taken from the Alien Boy EP: “Image of Man,” “Telepathic Love,” and “Voices in the Rain.” As far as we know the easiest place to get those tracks in the second decade of the 21st century is on the 3CD Wipers box set released by Zeno Records in 2001 (Z-005). The box set contains the first three Wipers LPs plus a selection of essential bonus material. Some of that bonus material is also available on the Jackpot Records record, Out Takes, which we happen to sell.
