The Dignity Of Labour
narrative on demo cassette version only:
The metallic beat you are now listening to forms the basis of the first part of a new three-part work by The Human League, entitled The Dignity Of Labour.
The Dignity Of Labour is supposed to show that modern technology depends almost entirely upon the worker. In this case, the example is the Russian space program.
The first part has the miners underground in Russia, digging up the coal to make steel.
The second part shows gantries being made from the steel, for Yuri Gagarin's spaceship.
The third part is an instrumental tribute to Yuri Gagarin.
The next music you hear after this piece ends will be Part Two of The Dignity Of Labour.
