‘Time’s gonna make me a man someday’ second edition

Mike Philpott’s wonderful book about his life trailing The Vapors has just been published as a deluxe, expanded hardback. Bringing the original 2019 text fully up to the present day, Mike has added almost a hundred extra pages. In addition, there are three sections of photos, a newly designed dust jacket and a introduction by Vapors ally & former drummer in The Chords, Brett ‘Buddy’ Ascott. If that wasn’t enough, every book has been hand signed by the four band members!

The attendees at the Portmeirion event had a chance to grab a copy over the weekend. Now’s your chance… This limited edition, high quality hardbacked book is available exclusively through the Vapors Merch website here and will also be on the merch stall on the band’s 2023 tour (if any are left!). Each book retails at £30 and all proceeds-a huge £20 per copy-are being donated to the charity Parkinson’s UK. To keep track of the monies raised, Mike has set up a Just Giving page here which is already off to a flying start. Either treat yourself to a copy or grab a perfect Christmas present for the Vapors fan in your life.
