Biografie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Consolidated was an American radical activist recording and performing group, formed in 1988 and 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. An entry on a previous version of Consolidated’s official website noted that all their albums have combined to sell over 500,000 copies.

Between 1989 and 1994, their instrumental style evolved from industrial, to hip-hop, to hard rock and funk with mixtures of ‘live’ instruments and electronic instruments. Their music often focused upon the following topics: vegetarianism, women’s rights, animal rights, fighting racism and homophobia, the unity of oppression, World War II and the Holocaust, the dangers of capitalism, and the evils of American Nationalism.

Although often criticized as having strident and confrontational lyrics, Consolidated tempered the intensity of their songs with many instances of self-deprecating humor. They admitted to their own struggles with addressing complex social issues within the constraining structures of „pop music,“ an artistic form they referred to as „a neutralized medium,“ but explained that they did so because they felt that it might be their only chance to reach a mass audience with progressive messages of social justice.
