Spandau Ballet

Previous Names: The Cut, The Makers, Gentry

Friend of the band (and writer for The Face magazine) Robert Elms saw the phrase "Spandau Ballet" written on the wall of a nightclub toilet in Berlin. The term had been used by allied troops in the trenches during WWI to refer to the twitching of corpses hanging on barbed wire while being hit by German Spandau machine gun fire. The weapon was named from the city of its production, in Spandau Germany.
