SPANDAU BALLET (III)

BarricadesEn 1986 Spandau Ballet firma con CBS (hoy Sony/BMG), preparándose para lanzar su 5to álbum de estudio, “Through the Barricades”, el cual es grabado en los estudios Musicland (Alemania) y Miraval (Francia). Para la grabación de dicho LP reemplazan a Jesse Bailey por Toby Chapman quien los acompañaría hasta el año 1990 y las siguientes giras. Un año antes Spandau se había presentado en el Festival de San Remo presentando el tema “Fight for Ourselves”.

El estilo de la banda varía del funky de “Parade” a un rock con cierto mensaje social (aunque Gary Kemp nunca consideró la música de la banda como “política”). De este quinto LP se editaron tres sencillos: “Fight for Ourselves” (# 15), “Through the Barricades” (#6) considerada como una de las mejores baladas de la banda al igual que “True” y finalmente “How Many Lies” (#34 ). Las giras comienzan siendo incluso más populares en España e Italia.

Es durante uno de los conciertos en el National Exhibition Center que se registra el video “Through the Barricades…Across the Borders” y el promo de “How Many Lies” es tomado de este video.

Sky promo picDurante el año 87 la banda se encargaría de promocionar el nuevo álbum; un año más tarde, se prepara un adelanto de lo que vendría a ser su último álbum de estudio “Home” que luego pasaría a llamarse “Motivations”; el nuevo sencillo “Raw” se edita en del año 1988 con un video promocional inspirado en la película “Angel Heart”. Aprentemente se planeaba tener listo el LP por esas épocas, Pero los hermanos Kemp incursionan como actores en la cinta “The Krays” en donde personifican a los gangsters Reginald y Ronald Kray; “Motivations” no saldría sino hasta el año siguiente con el título final de “Heart Like a Sky”; sin embargo el albúm es recibido con poca atención tanto de fans como de crítica y los sencillos de este no logran el impacto de sus primeras épocas: “Be Free with Your Love” sólo llegaría al puesto 42, finalmente “Crashed into Love” y “Empty Spaces” (que no entraron en los charts) marcarían el final de la banda; hay rumores de que lo último que se grabó en estudio fue un cover de “The Boxer” de Simon y Garfunkel; pero esto no he podido confirmalo.

Spandau Ballet realizó su último concierto el 6 de marzo de 1991 en el Edimburgh Playhouse, la banda no se deshizo oficialmente; simplemente habían dejado de tocar y según Gary Kemp ya era hora de cerrar esa página.
