Song of the Day #32
Wipers - “Youth of America” (Youth of America, 1981)
Great, often overlooked post-punk band. They seem to have a strong influence on lots of noisy, punkier garage rock stuff (I remember Wavves made t-shirts mimicking Wipers’ logo) but Wipers were more refined, even kind of proggy here. The closing riff on this is super catchy and that’s why they stretch it out to 10 minutes!
