Consolidated Trans-Jester and Liberating Music


Categories: , ,


Consolidated is an American radical activist music group, formed in 1988. Since then, their instrumental style has evolved from industrial, to hip-hop, to hard rock and funk with mixtures of live instruments and electronic instruments. They are distinguished by left-leaning political activism and politically radical lyrics, as well as their innovative sonic collages which blend industrial and hip-hop styles. Their signature song contains the band’s mission statement: “Consolidated is not even a consumer product… yet. This is no rock and roll band. It is a unique creative vision of a small, isolated group of individuals. A team that’s skilled and dedicated. Searching for the knowledge that will enable them to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of those around them.
