88Nine Radio Milwaukee

Kevin Haskins of Love & Rockets has a birthday today, as a good a reason to do Motown again today.

Yes, we did a Motown song yesterday to celebrate Martha Reeves birthday, with a contemporary cover. Today we celebrate Kevin Haskins, drummer from Bauhaus and Love & Rockets, birthday with a vintage cover of an even more vintage Motown song, The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion” written at a time of social upheaval. Originally written and recorded in 1970, it feels current today, so Kevin Haskins’ birthday gave us that opportunity.


“Ball Of Confusion” by The Temptations.
