A New-wave band originally formed in 1978, and reformed in 1979. The group was a one-hit wonder, with that one hit being Turning Japanese which made it to number three on the UK charts in 1980. They actually released a second album in 1981, but it flopped and the group broke up. The Vapors were Howard Smith (drums), Edward Bazalgette (lead guitar), David Fenton (vocals), and Steve Smith (bass). Their discography, like many bands from the '80s, now includes more compilations than albums.
