Happy 2015... Wish It Was 1985?

Happy New Year to all my readers (bless you both! x).

Ellen has e-mailed me to take me to task about the Spands, as I used to call 'em. How could I ignore 'em?

You've mentioned the Thompson Twins, PIL, Duran Duran, house music, acid house, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Neneh Cherry, Eurythmics, Adam and the Ants, Pet Shop Boys, even Agadoo by Black Lace and Tarzan Boy by Baltimora. But you've ignored one of the most iconic pop groups of the 1980s - SPANDAU BALLET. How could you do that?

Um, well, to cut a long story short I lost my mind, Ellen. No slight intended to the lads and that's TRUE. I just haven't got round to them yet. But I will. Hope you like the pic of them at Live Aid in 1985.

Happy New Year!
