The Vapors are a / band from England that existed between 1979 and 1981. The band reformed in October 2016 and started playing gigs again that year.

Their early musical style owed a great deal to New Wave and influences such as The Jam, Secret Affair and The Jags. Indeed, they were discovered and managed by The Jam’s manager John Weller.

The song for which they are mainly remembered, Turning Japanese, was produced by The Jam’s producer Vic Coppersmith-Heaven and hit the Top Three in the UK at the same time that “Going Underground” was at number one.
