The Vapors - Jimmie Jones


On this date in 1981, The Vapors released their sixth single, "Jimmie Jones". It was backed by "Daylight Titans". Both songs appeared on their second album, Magnets. "Jimmie Jones" was written about cult leader Jim Jones, founder of the People's Temple, infamous for their mass murder-suicide in 1978. The Guildford, England band was from the same area as The Jam and were managed by Bruce Foxton of The Jam. The new wave/power pop band called it quits in 1981 after two albums.
