D80sV #112: Spandau Ballet - Soul Boys Of The Western World Documentary

Daily 80's Video #112: Just watched this Spandau Ballet documentary available right now on Netflix and it was great! It's extremely comprehensive, covering each of the group members pre-Spandau and post-Spandau. Some things that stuck with me were how much the group was controlled by Gary Kemp, the groups guitarist and prime, possibly sole songwriter. Another thing was how much that control went to Kemp's head, and how it seemed to manifest in almost nonstop animosity toward the group's lead singer Tony Hadley, who comes off as innocent and totally not deserving of such treatment. In short, Gary Kemp, comes off as a prick and a half. On a lighter note, one last thing that stuck with me was how ridiculously handsome Martin Kemp was. Definitely an entertaining and informative documentary for anyone interested in 80's music. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
