The impact of the early Wipers records on the musical scene of
the 1990s cannot be overemphasized. The majority of popular
music was steeped in their influence, leaving the Wipers in the
unenviable position of attempting to find solid footing in the
landscape they had forged. After 1993's slow, haunting and
introspective 'Silver Sail', Sage and crew returned to the classic Wipers sound with 'The Herd'. Originally issued in 1996 on Tim/Kerr (and nearly impossible to find on vinyl for over a decade) the album is fast, fuzzy and moody. Drenched in rocket-fuel guitar tones, the paranoid beauty that spilled forth from the early recordings resonates on blasts such as
'Green Light Legion' and 'No Safe Place'. On 'The Herd's slower
pieces, such as 'Wind The Clock Slowly', Sage's urgent and
virtuosic leads peel away at the psyche leaving only underlying
and once hidden truths. Even as the most successful bands of the time were raking in mountains of money ripping off the Wipers, Sage and his band were crafting something new, unexpected and powerful. Something that evokes such musical excitement that it borders on panic.
