Spandau Ballet were one of the most successful bands of the 80's, and released six studio albums (three of these made Platinum in the UK) and 17 Top 40 singles.
Paint Me Down (still love that bassline) was the band's fifth single and was taken from the second album Diamond, reaching #30 in the UK during November 1981.
The peak of Spandau Ballet's musical career came in 1983 with the release of the album True, which gave the band their first chart hits in the U.S. This featured their biggest hits including the title track which reached #1 in the UK (#4 US) and Gold which made #2 in the UK (#29 U.S.).
The band split in 1990, but reunited again in 2009 with all the original members; Tony Hadley, Gary Kemp, Martin Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble.
