A radical Left industrial band from San Francisco, California: „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.“ – In each of their live performances, Consolidated included a period of time in which microphones were passed among audience members, who could then discuss, rebut, argue or elaborate upon the topics of Consolidated’s songs. Consolidated recorded many of these interactions and sampled excerpts of them to be included on their albums. Local, regional and national activist groups were invited by Consolidated to set up tables and information kiosks at their shows while they were on tour. Their music often focused on 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. 1989 bis 2005: Free Music!
