What 'Blue Monday' would sound like if it was recorded in 1933


BBC Arts and Orkestra Obsolete will take you back in time with this masterful interpretation of New Order's Blue Monday. Dressed in tailcoats and Zorro style eye masks, the bizarre group of musicians have re-recorded the electro-pop classic, giving it an ultra-vintage feel with instruments that were only available in the 1930s, such as the theremin, musical saw, harmonium and prepared piano. The cover was done in honor of the track's 33rd anniversary. Check out Orkestra Obsolete's freaky version of Blue Monday below. You can also watch it here.
