Spandau Prison in Europe housed many prisoners including World War II Nazi prisoners. When these prisoners were hanged the swinging of the dead body was called the Spandau Ballet.
That SS officer did a nice Spandau Ballet at his hanging.

The musical group Spandau Ballet took their name from this chilling term.
