Spiders @ 40

Exactly 40 years ago today, back in 1981, the band released their fifth single ‘Spiders’. It was the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘Magnets’, the follow up to ‘New Clear Days’. The song hinted at the darker feel of the album to come and the shift away from the poppier sound was highlighted by the use of synthesisers. The single release was coupled with the track ‘Galleries For Guns’ on the flip side. For some reason, EMI’s promotions budget didn’t stretch to a making a video and that probably contributed to the single not charting.… Read the rest


Season’s greetings

On behalf of The Vapors, their management & crew, we would like to wish the band’s fans around the world best wishes for the festive season and a happy and safe 2021. Despite everything else happening in the world this year, 2020 was also the year that finally delivered the band’s long-awaited third album Together, proving well worth the 39 year wait! Live wise, the year was written off after mid March due to the pandemic, forcing the postponement of both some FTJ gigs and the band’s New Clear Days 40th anniversary tour.… Read the rest

Waiting For The Weekend @ 40

On this day in 1980, the band released their fourth single ‘Waiting For The Weekend’, the third and final single from ‘New Clear Days’. The single version was a different mix to the album track and featured the inclusion of a brass section. The lyrics described a relationship hindered by the constraints of the working week and the catchy track ‘Billy’ was the b-side. Despite the accompanying video (with the band as mechanics), the single didn’t make the UK chart. Listen to both songs from the single on Spotify hereRead the rest
