Dan from Tosa posted a cool video on my Facebook timeline last week. The video features Orkestra Obsolete performing the landmark 1983 New Order song “Blue Monday” done entirely using 1930’s era instruments, including a saw, a Theremin and various other vintage instrumentation. While the music alone is a great listen, the video, featuring those vintage instuments is well worth watching.

And the Orkestra Obsolete video version:
