about

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!

Track Name: CTRLSHFT - Friendly Fascism
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.'
Track Name: Stoneburner vs Out Out - Butyric Acid
i want to talk about media distortion
ad campaign telling lies about abortion
standing there calling yourself a good christian
break your fucking sign because you're causing me friction
ignorant group operations rescue
if you treat women then they might even kill you
Randall Terry says they're soldiers of god now
if you ask me i'd say they're smoking much pot now
a little advice for the medical students
(they're) teaching cowardice not medical prudence
lobbying pressure from the a.m.a. cracker
don't treat women and you call yourself a doctor
standing in line fucking slime with no sense
two can play at that start clinic defense
yelling over me showing patients no respect
break for the lane get (an) elbow in your neck

[CHORUS x 2]
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

marching with your cross and your dead fetus picture
don't let me see you or i'll jam it up your sphincter
you're lucky that i find violence so heinous
but my wife and her friends'll put a foot in your anus.

confused sad woman kill apologizing
sad fucking bible you still memorizing
had to make a choice between god and her sisters
you imitate your oppressor so you dissed her

even though you told me you had the procedure
just 'cause you're rich and you're white that freed you
from the consequence of a child out of wedlock
from the family shame at the congregation potluck

crazy pregnant woman citing her religion
the baby's going to die without cesarean section
i won't support scientific intervention
i give her the freedom to deal with her actions

[CHORUS x 4]
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

'Women have the right to make choices about their own bodies.
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
Track Name: Caustic - Consolidated
'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'
Track Name: Nau-Zee-auN - Unity of Oppression
[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.
