Consolidated were an industrial band, highly politicised who were influenced in the early 1990s by the sounds coming from Europe. They worked with Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto) who moved to the US from the UK in that period and added his crunchy beats to their guitars.
Consolidated were Adam Sherburne, Mark Pistel and Philip Steir. But they didn’t sell terribly well and ended up being better received in the UK and Europe, probably the politics was too much for a US audience.


Consolidated was formed in 1988 and was best known in the early 1990s as an alternative dance/industrial music band. They were distinguished by left-leaning political activism and politically radical lyrics, as well as their innovative sonic collages which blended industrial and hip-hop styles.


Today’s tracks focus on issues of guns, racism and drugs; nothing too heavy there then…
