The Vapors stopped touring and gigging in the 1980s but the band has lost none of its edge by pursuing individual careers largely away from the stage.

Unfairly portrayed as one hit wonders, the set was packed with 19 great songs and literally fizzed from the beginning to the end. The show opened at pace with Secret Noise before breaking into News at Ten and finishing off with a barnstorming Here Comes The Judge.

Since the band broke up, singer/ song writer David Fenton has been pursuing a career in the legal profession while lead guitarist, Edward Bazalgette has had success as a television director. Bassist, Steve Smith worked on number of other music projects while running an independent record store.

The line up now includes an outstanding new recruit, Michael Bowes on drums and whole line up worked well together to produce a show that was as fresh and vibrant as when they first started out.

David Fenton is a great front man and vocalist but the backing harmonies add another dimension. The band has been sorely missed and this performance including their cult hit Turning Japanese showed what a great outfit they were – and continue to be.
