Not that i recently didn’t put any content online but nearly all of it was on Facebook. The danger of integrated, walled garden constructs like that is that you get cut off from the rest of the internet.

Wipers - Logo
Driving back yesterday evening after a few days at the seaside my iPod provided me with nearly 2 hours of the Wipers, which turned out to be excellent driving music, creating an eerie driving experience.

There is so much to say about the band but I prefer this time to let the music say it all: Greg Sage and the Wipers …
