So where did the name Spandau Ballet come from? According to Gary Kemp, “There were bands around at the time like Cabaret Voltaire and we didn’t have a name and Robert Elms, who is now a well known writer and broadcaster over here, was one on our scene and he had just come back from a trip to Berlin clubbing. He said ‘I’ve got a great name - ‘Spandau Ballet.’ You know, Spandau is a place in Berlin and we thought it sounded incredibly exotic and we took it. But it was a few years later that he actually admitted to us that he had seen it written on a toilet wall in a Berlin club, so I guess the truth is, we stole it from another band.” If it’s on the Internet, it must be True.
