Diamond Geezer – Barry Cain Recalls Spandau Ballet

Written by Barry Cain

It was April 1980 and punk was dying.

Dig the new breed who were still pretty much the old breed with the occasional knob on. The Jam, the Clash and the Stranglers were no longer punk bands in any sense of the word. They’d ‘progressed’.

“Tomorrow when we meet…..
jarring collisions on hostile street”
(Dave Waller, front endpaper, Notes From Hostile Street, 1979).
