Love And Rockets – Ball Of Confusion (US 12″)

Love And Rockets give the Temptations classic a rocky make over with this successful cover from 1986, co-produced by John A Rivers. This was their debut release and sees the Daniel Ash and Co emerge from the ashes of Bauhaus. There is more guitar and guitar treatments on USA mix. Very topical at the moment, prophetic lyrics.

“People moving out, people moving in
Why? Because of the colour of their skin
Run, run, run but you just can’t hide”

B-side is a bit more classic Bauhaus, “All In My Mind” has the classic acoustic guitar sound from Mr. Ash.
