Yes people, after some “time off” we are back (with a vengeance), thanks for all the mail we have got, and sorry you weren’t able to visit us (has something to do with the “holiday camp”” regime). Here we are again in our hometown:
Although we are really getting the hang of this cloth peg making, we found the time to upload another revealed secret, check it out here
Bad news people, unfortunately we are told that we can't perform for a couple months, due to certain circumstances we cannot reveal right now.
Meanwhile we wish everybody else a nice summer, as we refine our skills in clothes peg making.
Although we don't play on any of the 5th of May Liberation festivals this year, we sure would like to a make a musical contribution in the name of Freedom.
Check out our live performance on Live@ideaal.org , where we played our song "Freedom"

We had (again) a great night in Nirwana Dronten, thanks everybody of the crew of Nirwana and thanks to all people who did show up at our gig. Especially the 5 people who did buy our WiPe USB stick, enjoy!!
Just a little update, we are currently working on our second EP which will be finished after our summer break. We’re quiet excited how the songs work out, we hope you like them aswell.
We will be playing on the 27th of May in Nirwana Dronten together with Vandervens and Roadcrew.
We were asked back for “the end of the season party” in Nirwana Dronten on the 27th of May, details will follow.
We had a blast last night in Barneveld, thanks everybody!!
Attention attention, this saturday the 16th of April we will be the opening act of the night in Villa 29 in Barneveld. We will be starting exactly 21.00 hour! And please no pushing at the entry door please.
We have entered Giel Beelens talentscouting program and uploaded a (bedroom) video for “Level 32” , check it here
Our next gig is on the 16th of April in Villa 29 in Barneveld!!
Our EP from 2015 contained a “Hidden Track” titled “Moon”. As we self, hardly could find this track back again, we decided to make a video for it, just to remember it :-) check it here
Check out “Forecaster” played live in Nirwana Dronten right here
Holy Zorro, it looks like we have ourselves our own facebook page!
We just had an amazing night in Nirwana Dronten last night. Thanks to all the kind people of Nirwana who helped us playing our very first live show as WiPe. We hope everybody enjoyed it as much as we did, and hope to see you soon again!
Meanwhile check out two great pictures made by Femke Broekhuijsen here
And it is confirmed, WiPe will be playing in Nirwana Dronten on the 20th of February.
Allright! It looks like we are gonna do or first ever gig (as WiPe) in Nirwana Dronten on the 20th of February, it all has to be confirmed though. Hang on!
And if all this is not enough, we celebrated our first year being WiPe, hurray!!
It feels like we are on a one month rocketride. This week (week 5) we have reached number 4 of the Indie 40 on Indie XL!! Almost time to celebrate with a cake!!
We moved up another three places with “Level 32” (week 4) we are at number 6 now, unbelievable, check it at Indiexl
This week (week 3) we’ve moved from 20 to 9 on the Indie 40 chart at Indie XL in!
It seems like Mr Bowie predicted the rise of Wipe already in 1980: “We are the goon squad and we're coming to town, Beep-beep” (Fashion) , R.I.P. Mr Jones.
We just recovered the shock that we’ve entered the Indie 40 chart at number 20!! at Indie XL
Happy new year everybody, and this years starts big!! We are the “Indie disc” of the week according to Indie XL!! with “Level 32” Hip hip hurray!!!! Thanks Indie!!
As everybody, we were shocked by the news that Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister has passed away on the 28th of december 2015. The godfather of Lead Bass is no more. R.I.P
We wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a happy 2016!! Keep on supporting WiPe!
.We’ve partied all night long last night, we have entered the Indie XL Advice list :-) with “Level 32”
As it is played at Indie XL, we’ve uploaded “Level 32” to YouTube also, check it here
We made a video to accompany a track from our EP, check it out here
10 months underway, and we are very proud to present our first recorded EP. Check out a track (or all, if you dare) on our media page. Also you can gaze for a couple of hours or so, at our beautiful heads on the images page if you want. :-)
You may ask yourself how did I get here? (Thanks David!!), well, you used Google or stumbled upon this page, because you were curious about it. And rightfull you are, because WiPe is an exciting 2 man band project.
William (singer of Crazy/Daisy), approached Peter to do a new musical project and while discussing it, they thought no other band members were really necessary. Drums and vocals are handled by William, and Peter plays lead and bass guitar at the same time. Although he already played lead bass in a project called “Dirty Underwear” together with Claw Boys Clay drummer Marc Lamb in the early nineties, he didn’t handle the bass parts aswell back then. Fortunally Mike Kerr from Royal Blood has already proved, the last couple of years, that that also can be done.
And although it can’t been denied that Royal Blood is a influence, WiPe certainly doesn’t sound like them. Hold on to your seats, within a couple of months WiPe will produce a stunning EP. The world will be shocked!
