Nice work by our work experience Hull native Sophie, a recent convert to the work of the mighty Laibach, for finding the above video, a brilliant shot-for-shot recreation of the mock-propaganda film that the Slovenian group made for their track 'Life Is Live', itself a cover of Opus' hit single. The video features a troupe of young people recreating the video in office temp uniforms of shirt and tie. Say the makers of the video, "After seeing the original video and witnessing the pure power of life, we were motivated to create a video of our own. Enjoy, and remember that Life is Life." It's really ace. Is this meta? Is it a me me? Laibach's original is below. Check the Quietus next week for the story of Laibach in Laibach's own words.
