This political remix video was created by the UK scratch video duo The Duvet Brothers in 1984. It was created by combining recorded tv footage with the song "Blue Monday" by the band New Order to comment on class inequality, privatization and the economic polices of the Thatcher government. In the early to mid 80s, scratch videos would be seen in nightclub performances, at independent cinemas and through DIY distribution on VHS tapes. Some scratch video artists called their work "anti-art".
