David Fenton (ex-Vapors): Fresh Air (1983)

Thanks to Håkan for the rip and scan of this lost treasure.

After The Vapors (more HERE) dispersed, leader David Fenton released his only solo single in 1983.

While in instrumentation these two tracks ( "Fresh Air" b/w "Buried in Snow") are closer to the synth-pop of their time, the songs are thoughtful, melodic and vocal-heavy, which makes for a far more human final product than so much of what filled the racks of this time.

So, whats your take on Mr. Fenton's solo stand?
We await your word in the COMMENTS section!

  3. As much as I would love to own that single I sadly dont and the rip is not mine.
    It was found on the www as is a few years ago and I dont remember the name of the blog/blogger who posted it.

    Hope any Vapors fans who had never heard it gets a kick out of it. :)

  4. Many thanx for this. Always up for anything Vapors related!

  5. Oddly enough, I think it's great. Was never fond of the style, but he pulls it off. I haven't heard this in a long, long time. Hearty thanks to the upper.
