Consolidated Reunited 18/9/20
The legendary Industrial/Rap/Rock/Funk politically active and socially critical 90's band, Consolidated, have reunited for a one-time album release through Cargo Records later this year, plus a European tour pencilled in from May to July next year. Indeed, since breaking up in the 1990's, the left leaning group, consisting of Adam Sherburne: guitar, vocals, Mark Pistel: samples, sequencers and keyboards/synths and Lynn Farmer (Meat Beat Manifesto): drums, have decided to bring a well-needed message to the world during this time of great division. Formed in 1988, the Americans are best known in the early 1990's as an Alternative Dance band, and between 1989 and 1994 their instrumental style evolved from Industrial, to Hip-Hop, to Hard Rock and Funk, with mixtures of live and electronic instruments. They were also distinguished by their radical lyrics, as well as their innovative sonic collages.
