Amazing footage from London punk scenes of the 70's and early Spandau Ballet gigs
11 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Can't believe nobody has written anything about this awesome movie yet! It was very well cut and edited- 2 hours long and not a single boring bit. Photos and video footages from the dawn of the band in the 70's are incredible- lots of hipstery- in a good way- party people are genuine and quickly evolving. They're the ones who really make the effort to look special for good parties. Learned about the "it" clubs- Blitz and Beetroot. You can tell there was good music, fun scene with a diverse mix, and clubs today try to keep it that way too, the spirit hasn't changed. For the band itself well go watch this and find out. These guys are the dream team.
