The Wipers - Alien Boy


On this date in 1980, The Wipers released their second EP, Alien Boy. It contained the title track plus "Image Of Man", "Telepathetic Love" and "Voices In The Rain". The A side appeared on their debut album, Is This Real? The other three tracks did not but were added as bonuses when the album was re-released on CD. Their sound changed somewhat by the late '80's and were a major influence on the grunge sound that surfaced in the Northwest U.S. They disbanded in 2001.
