Pink Floyd has re-released the original video that played during their 1977 In The Flesh tour when they played 'Welcome To The Machine." It was created by Gerald Scarfe who did much of the artwork and animation for The Wall.
"Welcome to the Machine" is the second song on Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here. The song is said to be inspired by George Orwell's book 1984, in which a man is trying to escape the government which is brainwashing its citizens with TV shows and oppressive rules. The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour. (youtube)
