THE VAPORS

The Vapors are a new wave band who formed in 1978. Discovered by Bruce Foxton of The Jam (who went on to be their co-manager with John Weller), The Vapors released the classic singles ‘Turning Japanese’, ‘News at Ten’, ‘Jimmie Jones’, ‘Prisoners’, ‘Waiting for the Weekend’, ‘Spiders’ and two LP’s ‘Magnets’ and ‘New Clear Days’ before splitting in 1982. The 40th anniversary of the release of their 1980 debut album ‘New Clear Days’ was to have been celebrated with the album performed in full + more in a full UK tour in Autumn 2020. We all know what happened there but hope for new clear days in 2021 when the band will return to stages all across the country.
