Spandau Ballet and Blitz club on Great Queen Street, Covent Garden…




North London boys all, Spandau Ballet emerged from London's New Romantic scene to conquer the charts with an unforgettable look. The New Romantics combined the shock tactics of the punks with the working class sartorial sensibility of the Mods to create an image that was both outré yet impeccably calculated.


Blitz was also where David Bowie recruited the extras for his landmark Ashes to Ashes video (1980).   




And here are The Spands in their pomp…
