The Vapors Information

The Vapors - UK New Wave band formed in 1979 - The band reformed in 2016 after 35 years apart but were originally co-managed by Paul Weller's Father John and The Jam Bass player Bruce Foxton. They were discovered by Foxton whilst playing in a pub in Guildford and invited to tour with Paul Weller and The Jam on the Setting Sons tour. The band hit the big time in 1980 when 'Turning Japanese' reached number 3 in the UK charts and also hit Number 1 in Australia, Canada and Billboard Top 40 in the USA. The song was used in hit films such as '16 Candles and Charlies Angels' and regularly features on Punk and New Wave compilation albums. After a number of other single releases including 'News at Ten and Jimmie Jones' and 2 critically acclaimed albums 'New Clear Days' and 'Magnets' the band parted company.
