New Entry: Pin Ups Unveil "Turning Japanese" (The Vapors Cover)

London indie punk/glam band Pin Ups have unveiled their cover version of The Vapors classic "Turning Japanese".

From the band's JB: "This is a cover of the absolute banger ’Turning Japanese’ by The Vapors that we recorded in 2018 with our boy Scott Docherty at his private studio near Finsbury Park, North London. We’d finished up recording ‘Do You Hate Yourself Yet?’ and decided to smash this one out whilst the gear was still out and we were still all juiced up. The idea was to catch it as lively as possible so I think we set a maximum of three takes, and Scott put on these flashy lights and danced about to conjure up some weirdness. He's the master. We overdubbed the vocals over a huge bag of cans later that evening and what you get it is a weird, lively version of an already weird, lively song."
