A Message To The People: A Tribute To CONSOLIDATED!

by A Collective of Various Artists

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the end of the twentieth century and the arrival of friendly fascism. Regrettably, millions will die as before. But just think of the tremendous selection and savings you’ll gain. Of course the loss of freedom and democracy are tragedies, I know, but consider the entertainment value contained within. And to remind you, it is you, the people, who have mandated this course of our fate so please come with me…. Look at the new face of power in America. This is your future. You can never leave. Who said tyranny can’t be fun? Friendly fascism having so much fun. What else do you need? You’ll learn to like what you must do. If you resist you are suppressed. You are told who to fight and when By Trump the Nazi fascist friend. Alienating technology wipes out our sense of community. Millions will die just as before. We disconnect and start the war. We make life a commodity. We turn animals into machines. Kinder and gentler slaughter house. Big business and government Distract us with entertainment. They manufacture our consent While we destroy the environment. What has happened here is but the sound before the fury of the oppressed. All of us here realize that wherever there is that struggle... that sacrifice, we ain't going to quit. You know why we ain't gonna quit? Because we're one unit. We're tired of being beaten. We're tired of being oppressed. 'The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent. They have created a repressive society, and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others. We are focused only on our own gain. Please understand. They are safe as long as they are not discovered. That is their primary method of survival. Keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated.' Look at the new face of power in America. This is your future. You can never leave. Who said tyranny can’t be fun? Friendly fascism having so much fun. What else do you need? 'The feeling is definitely there. It's a new morning in America...fresh, vital. The old cynicism is gone. We have faith in our leaders. We're optimistic as to what becomes of it all. It really boils down to our ability to accept. We don't need pessimism. There are no limits.'

You're trying to make choices about OTHER people's bodies.' [x3] ru486? yes i am sir anything to empower women that's for d*** sure know what it means when they're bombing all the clinics who's going to say get off the fence to the cynics harassing g.y.n. with a death threat say that you're doing god's work well yeah bet respect women and give her some room believe in her rights stay out of her womb if you want to see women stop termination give her a future and a real education do you think women want to kill their own babies? do you think women want to kill their own babies? do you think women want to kill their own babies? if got your own twisted baggage then maybe [x4] if you don't want a Nazi in your house don't let one don't know a fundamentalist 'til you've met one if you've memorized your civil rights don't forget one if you don't want an abortion don't get one
God Damn! This is madness. its the fourth consecutive week I've had this reoccurring nightmare of a woman who tries to walk her child to daycare They pass a liquor store See an average looking kid running out the door In a moment frozen they watch as he reveals a handgun Terror in her voice no sound he unloads a round her son goes down Then I wake up screaming but am I dreaming cause its just another day So many killings repeated until people have no feeling When every two years guns take more American lives than the whole Vietnam war. Six teens and children die Every day in gun homicides and the NRA lobby fool Pays athletes to tell kids to stay in school Whoever said that must be joking, Go tell that to the kids in Oakland, DC. Detroit and Newark And you wonder why kids don't do their homework The school is a war zone Teachers and students alike are afraid to leave home Hallways are an innocent tomb The principal's office a grieving room This is a malignant cancer Guards and metal detectors won't be the answer Hundreds of thousands of students say they carry guns to school daily Growing up with fear and panic. [scratch] Bang. Nine. Automatic. [x2] [scratch] Its genocide America has the most homicides Society devouring its own young [x7] Take away those guns We need gun control [scratch] Bang, Nine. Automatic How can we stop the violence When everywhere we look is the image of gun death The Rodney King explosion Is just one result of inner city erosion Take away all hope and kids will turn to robbery and dealing dope You don't care about elections What urban youth want is protection From a life of war could be the Iraqi war or war in the Filmore There is no more tragic sight than a heavily armed youth with no respect for life. The leading cause of death in African American males under the age of thirty five At the funeral the friends will cry but on the streets they tool and die And Hollywood has done more than anyone to glamorize the gun in movies, music and TV. [scratch] Its Genocide... can't you see... Got to take the profit out of crime, Stop glamorizing death on prime-time. Cities aren’t the only places Where kids are waging arms races In suburbs and rural areas. Across the country kids are carrying Three more hours and another teenage youth will have committed suicide While his mothers crying Gun advocates are on TV lying To the public about how people are the ones who kill and guns don't Until we have gun control we can't stop these ten year olds From going in their father's closet Where the gun was left unlocked and loaded. Where does it end? When everyone gets their own piece, dividend [scratch] Its Genocide... can't you see... [scratch] Obviously none of you can be trusted with guns. So I'm going to take them away from you. Driving down Guerrero Cut off a psycho kid looks like Sendero Luminoso words are froze so I don't start talking shit or acting macho You could get popped in a minute This is the wild, wild west and we're in it And my kids don't want no play When they have to worry about duckin’ spray Or two drunks having an argument In front of our apartment When I hear that sound, I yell, "Everyone get inside and get down." GET DOWN! Get the fuck down!
'democracy has so disappeared in the United States' Consolidated hasn't been shown on TV. Consolidated is not obtainable in stores. Consolidated is not even a consumer product...yet. This is no rock and roll band. It's 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. Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated You'll address and rectify a personal history of general disregard for all life - human and environmental. You'll behave in a manner befitting your stature. You'll exhibit profound humility in the company of all women and peoples of color. You'll abstain from acts of idle or wrongful gratification. You'll abstain from substance abuse or profit off exploitation. This is no consumer product, help us win the war against inequality - racist, sexist, and economic -- before it's too late. Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated -Consolidated - Consolidated - CON-SOL-I-DATED - Consolidated This is neither law, religion, philosophy, or fashion and should never be represented as su-uuuuuuuuuuch You'll reassess and prioritize your life in accordance, with the principles of intelligence, compassion, and accountability. The status of family, friends, and community are foremost in your thoughts at all times, and are inseparable from the creative process itself. This is no rock and roll band. It's a democratically executed forum for social and political transformation...in effect! Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - Consolidated - CON-SOL-I-DATED - 'the country has always devalued black bodies. has never seen black people as worthy of protection' 'this is American justice. this is American democracy. And those of you who are familiar with it know that in America democracy is a hypocracy' [x3] 'a hypocracy' 'democracy is a hypocracy'
I quit my job today but i quit giving up a long long time ago being an activist doesn't pay still gotta pay the rent and utilities somehow but i don't know I’s reading the op-ed page today a conservative priest just ripped me for advocating safe sex for teenagers he said this is god's punishment we'll feel sorry for her tragedy but she got what she deserves i don't want your sympathy i don't need your platitudes this father's no different from my own father so my friends and my family why should i listen to you you never listen to me everyday i ask the same questions (same) everyday i wonder what you'd think if you were me call me if you have time it's strange to see my old friends when they're out at night maybe I'll take some time to travel right now I'm just trying to keep things level but sometimes i lose it today is my birthday I'm gonna be twenty and i'm HIV positive i contracted it a year ago you all have to understand that it's part of our reality and the person next to you could be hiv positive your lover could be HIV positive and they don't know you have to be careful every time i see my reflection i start crying but i refuse to let you tell me my life is just dying my will is strong but time has double meaning and it cuts like a knife at the time i was diagnosed i'd only had three lovers in my life why should i answer to you you never answer to me everyday i ask the same questions every day i make big decisions i'll deal with the consequences of my reality i'm only telling you because no-one ever told me In the meantime i stay healthy my only regret is i'll never have a baby i used to catch myself saying maybe
[Bobby Seale] "When we went to the capital, we were there to deliver a message based upon our understanding of what racism is and how it is inflicted upon us in our communities in America, and deliver this message to the world." "...that we were anti-white. That we hold no bones... This is a quote. Pick no bones about being anti-white. This is a bold faced lie! We don’t hate nobody because of their color. We hate oppression! We hate the murder of black people in our communities We hate the gross unemployment that exists in our communities" “We don’t hate nobody because of their color.” “We don’t hate nobody because of their color.” “We don’t hate nobody because of their color. We hate oppression!” The history of oppression. You know we can’t erase it in a pop song but the facts we gotta face it. Men rape women and man rapes the environment. And people with opposed religious views are violent. How can we advance with a memory so short. We live in a society that kills animals for sport. And how can we discuss gender, class, or race when we can’t respect the rights of lesbians and gays. [Greta Thunberg] 'People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing' [Harvey Milk] “We must destroy the myths once and for all and shatter them. We must continue to speak out” In our efforts to make a difference we specialize but the contradiction arise. We fail to realize the damages done to the Native American. These singular issues — I just can’t understand how you can love one and have hatred for another. You torture your sisters while saying peace to your brothers. As long as we insist on being so aggressive, we will continue to play the role of the oppressor. When men and women, straight and gay, whites and non-whites begin to unite; when humans can treat non-human species with fairness and dignity, then only then is there Unity. [x2] Gotta understand the concept of Unity… of Oppression Make a sacrifice for the price of Unity. To all the white liberals and non-white militants that over-simplify the impact of prejudice. Blame it on the whites and you’re right but it keeps us divided; that agenda becomes short-sighted. I hear you condemning all racist sentiments and then I hear you making anti-Semitic comments. Instead of only allowing one type of equality, place the blame on each other. Yet we should be expanding our scope of understanding and hope. Just posing some questions and make some suggestions. We don’t claim to speak from a position of authority, we only want one thing and that’s Unity. [x5] Gotta understand the concept of Unity… of Oppression Make a sacrifice for the price of Unity. [Harvey Milk] "to the gay community all over this state, my message to you is, so far a lot of people joined us and rejected Proposition 6, and now we owe them something. We owe them to continue the education campaign that took place. We must destroy the myths once and for all, shatter them. We must continue to speak out, and most importantly, most importantly, every gay person must come out..." [Bobby Seale] “We don’t hate nobody because of their color" "We don’t hate nobody because of their color" "We don’t hate nobody because of their color. We hate oppression! We hate the murder of black people in our communities We hate the gross unemployment that exists in our communities" [Harvey Milk] "...every gay person must come out. As difficult as it is, you must tell your immediate family, you must tell your relatives, you must tell your friends, if indeed they are your friends, you must tell your neighbors, you must tell the people you work with, you must tell the people in the stores you shop in (thunderous applause), and once they realize that we are indeed their children, that we are indeed everywhere, every myth, every lie, every innuendo will be destroyed once and for all. And once you do, you will feel so much better." [x4] Unity.
[the babel of crooks and morons] [x2] White American Male What have you ever done to reverse the pattern of institutional racism? [x2] Said nothing. Done nothing. Silence. [x2] White American Male [more nonsense from crooks and morons] What have you ever done to rectify the history of racism and inequality? [x2] Said nothing. Done nothing. Silence. [more nonsense from crooks and morons] [x4] White American Male

I know you're really proud, cause you think you're well-hung, But I think it's time you learn how to use your tongue. You say you want things to be even and you want things to be fair, But you're afraid to get your teeth caught in my pubic hair. If you're lying there expecting me to suck your dick, You're going to have to give me more than just a token lick. Well, you may not like it but you better learn how, 'Cause it's your turn now. Now, you suck If you're worried about babies, you can lower your risk- By giving me that special cunnilingus kiss. It's on your face that I'm gonna sit. You can wiggle, you can jiggle your tongue on my clit. Don't worry about making me have an orgasm. Just take your time and do it with enthusiasm. I can tell it's making you scared jut thinking of it, But you better learn to love it. Now, you suck When you hear safe sex, you snicker under your breath. We got to take cover, we're flirting with death. Aids is our problem, we've got to talk. Break out your dental dam and your latex sock. I'm your latex lover wrapped like a gift, Got my microwave plastic wrap heating up my clit. Dinners on, get busy with my booty. Got a couple of flavors, sweet licorice and fruity. I know you're sad, luscious pussy with a cover. I'm aching, too, we can't taste each other. ... Well, I know you think it's a real drag, To suck my cunt when I'm on the rag. Quit making up stories, yeah give me a break. 'Cause I really don't believe you've got a headache. Now, you suck,
Sex Work Work makes you free Arbeit mach frei


The Dead Kennedys / Public Enemy of industrial music, Consolidated, are much more than a foundational band of the genre. They represent the fight for human rights and a social focus that was once indicative of the alternative music subculture of bands from New Model Army to Billy Bragg to Skinny Puppy. Our "Message to the People" release presents numerous powerful remakes of Consolidated songs. In addition, DJ Darryl Hell and DJ Zvetschka have created a MEGA reMix comprised of dozens of Consolidated songs that is unlike anything the industrial genre has ever seen / heard.

Launching on the birth and death day of the mother of the civil right movement, Ella Baker, on December 13th, 2019, with all money collected going to charities selected by the original Consolidated members, Mark Pistel, Adam Sherburne, Philip Steir; American Civil Liberties Union - ACLU and Boston area homeless youth/adult services (currently determining which one - suggestions are welcome).

Originally conceived as an alternative outlet for a cover done by Nau-Zee-auN of Unity of Oppression for the We Are Not Trump Singles series (see wearenottrump.bandcamp.com/music), and inspired into action by the cover of Butyric Acid done by Stoneburner and Out Out, the compilation is a tribute to a band that warned us at every step about what has taken place to lead to our current place in history of Me Too, Black Lives Matter, fighting against concentration camps, mass shootings, burning rain-forests, melting ice caps, mass extinction, and the most corrupt, dishonest and openly racist president in half a century.

We, the collective of artists on this compilation have made this with LOVE, HONOR and RESPECT for Mark, Adam and Philip, the original members of CONSOLIDATED!


released December 13, 2019

All music written by Consolidated members Mark Pistel, Adam Sherburne, Philip Steir with the exception of track 5, '10,000 Years Locked Down (Future Garage Mix)' which is inspired by Consolidated and written by Caldon Glover.

Concept, production and graphic design by David 'Deftly-D' Dodson.

Mastered by Rob Galbraith of Component Recordings.

Original versions of the covered songs appeared as follows:
Track 4 from the EP Consolidated and the album The Myth of Rock
Track 8 from the album The Myth of Rock
Tracks 1 and 7 from the album Friendly Fa$cism
Tracks 3 and 10 from the album Play More Music
Tracks 2, 6 and 9 from the album Business Of Punishment
Track 11 from the album Tikkun - Survivor Demos
Track 12 and 13 Is a DJ collage of music by Consolidated spanning multiple albums and singles, along with Grace Jones' cover of Typical Male. All remixing was done live on camera by DJ Darryl Hell and DJ Zvetschka.

Cover design inspired by William J. Dickson II, who designed the majority of Consolidated's album art and logos, especially his work on Consolidated's self titled debut EP, The Myth of Rock and Friendly Fa$cism.
