A year ago!

Sadly, due to the pandemic & subsequent lockdowns, it’s now exactly a year to the day since the band graced a stage. The last show was with From The Jam in Leamington Spa which beat the first lockdown by a few days. Hopefully, with the gradual easing of restrictions, life can get back to normality very soon and we will have the long-overdue return of live music.
Now is a perfect time to grab your tickets for the autumn 40th anniversary of New Clear Days gigs (or a FTJ show) and details and links are on the left.… Read the rest

Magnets @ 40

Exactly 40 years ago today, on the 9th of March 1981, the band released their second album ‘Magnets’, a mere nine months after their debut ‘New Clear Days’. The 11 track album was produced by David Tickle, who was best known at that time for his work with Split Enz.

The album’s feel was generally darker and less poppy than its predecessor and the lyrics dealt with a range of bleak topics such as mental health, presidential assassinations and a mass murdering cult leader.… Read the rest

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
