Spandau Ballet was one of the biggest bands of the 1980s, being at the forefront of the New Romantic movement in Britain.  In this independent, unapproved and wholly unauthorized story of the band, long-time fan David Barrat reveals some surprising, and hitherto unknown, facts about its origins and early development.

Compiled from various sources, the book is based on detailed research over many years. If you have ever wondered how Spandau Ballet got its name or what a New Romantic actually was, or if you are curious about the various legal proceedings involving the band members, you will want to read this book.  It is certainly a must-read for any Spandau fan or anyone interested in the New Romantic scene or Eighties pop music in general.
