British Electric Foundation - Ball Of Confusion


On this date in 1982, British Electric Foundation released their first single, "Ball Of Confusion". The B side was an instrumental version of the A side. The A side appeared on their third long-play release, Music Of Quality And Distinction Volume One which was a collection of covers with different guest singers and the band's synth music. Tina Turner handled the lead on this track. The Sheffield, England new wave "project" was formed when Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh split from The Human League. This was their pre-Heaven 17 days and British Electric Foundation was to be a business collective for releasing not only their music but other artists as well. They recruited Glenn Gregory for vocals soon afterwards and Heaven 17 was born though they kept British Electric Foundation alive.
