Orkestra Obsolete perform Blue Monday

New Order’s Blue Monday was released on 7 March 1983. What would it have sounded like if it had been made 50 years earlier? In a special film for BBC ARTS, using only instruments available in the 1930s – from the theremin and musical saw to the harmonium and prepared piano – the mysterious Orkestra Obsolete present this classic track as you’ve never heard it before (well ,assuming you haven’t heard this several times today already!).
