Meat Beat Manifesto

Beginning in 1987 as an experimental/industrial duo inspired by the cut-and-paste attitudes of hip-hop and dub, Meat Beat Manifesto increasingly became a vehicle for its frontman, Jack Dangers, to explore the emerging electronics of techno, trip-hop, and jungle. Though the group was initially pegged as an industrial act (simply appearing on Wax Trax! was enough to do the trick), its approach to studio recordings influenced many in the new electronica community during the 1990s, even while Dangers remained a superb producer working in much the same way. Born John Corrigan in 1967 in Swindon, England, Dangers played with Jonny Stephens in the pop band Perennial Divide in the mid-'80s. The two formed Meat Beat Manifesto in 1987 initially as a side project, and released the singles "I Got the Fear" and "Strap Down" that year. The dense, danceable material surprised many critics used to the duo's previous work, and the singles received good reviews.

Dangers and Stephens left Perennial Divide by 1988 and recorded an album that same year -- using a touring group of up to 13 members for occasional live shows. The tapes were damaged in a fire, so the two recorded Storm the Studio a year later. Just as dense and sample-heavy as the first singles, Storm the Studio included four songs but added three remixes of each -- no need to explain the title -- encompassing high-energy dub, hip-hop, and noise rock. With an American deal through Wax Trax!, Meat Beat Manifesto became known in the U.S. as an industrial band, though Dangers and Stephens felt themselves pigeonholed. The duo moved to the San Francisco area soon after, and formed a rough political collective with the members of Consolidated and the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. (Jack Dangers and Consolidated's Mark Pistel co-produced early Disposable Heroes material.) Meat Beat Manifesto, meanwhile, continued their audio terrorism with 99%, a 1990 album that added some jazzy rhythms to the collage of noise. That same year, Wax Trax! recycled the remaining tapes from the aborted first album and released them as Armed Audio Warfare.

When Dangers and Stephens signed away from Wax Trax! to the major label Elektra in 1992, the duo finally shook the industrial tag that had stuck with them previously. Instead, the media christened the follow-up, Satyricon, a techno album, due to both the duo's tour of the U.S. with Orbital and Ultramarine and the album's groove-heavy update of old synth groups such as Depeche Mode. Dangers' early material began to be name-checked as at least a partial motivation for the trip-hop and drum'n'bass movement, due to the studio mechanics inherent in the music. The late-'90s full-lengths Subliminal Sandwich and Actual Sounds + Voices increased Dangers' devotion to the experimental side of electronica, though his first Meat Beat Manifesto LP of the new millennium (RUOK?) was a more Spartan affair.

Dangers moved Meat Beat Manifesto to the Thirsty Ear label in 2005. His first release on the label, At the Center, became part of Thirsty Ear's Blue Series, a series of recordings that explored new avenues of jazz. Keyboardist Craig Taborn, Bad Plus drummer Dave King, and flutist Peter Gordon joined Dangers on the album, which was followed three years later by Autoimmune on Metropolis Records. Dangers has also contributed to the Tino's Breaks series of records released on the Tino Corp. label he co-owns with Ben Stokes (aka DHS), and he has released several solo albums, including 2001's Hello Friends!, 2002's Variaciones Espectrales, and 2004's Forbidden Planet Explored. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Im with you!!! MBM started the whole movement, Subliminal was the s**t!!!! No one else gets it! Props to"NOTHING." For mass production
I love Jack Dangers/Meat Beat Manifesto/Ti n o I saw him play live in Atlanta several years ago in a small venue with Consolidated ' s Mark Pistel on live drums, that show rocked me to my soul. I must Say Jack is still looking good after 3 decades in the music business. I find it amazing how prolific this man is, and i cant say that I've ever been disappointed with one of his album purchases (of which i own at least 8 including his Tino work).
If you don't like hiphop andor experimental d a n c e then you don't know Jack Dangers.
When taking enviro appreciation in the 3rd grade, I learned that there are chemicals in much things consumed - in small amounts ppl can build tolerance. I want all chemical to end so I can keep ingesting the chemical, known as ethanol alcohol. I can't remember what the curve is called.It has something to do with building tolerance. Save the liver. I guess.
meat beat remains one of the most underrated and one of the most influential bands of the 90s. Nearly every release has been 100% quality over a period of twenty some years. Early MBM is great and it just gets better. 99%, Subliminal Sandwich, Actual Sounds and Voices, RUOK, and Answers Come in Dreams are all high water marks. Also essential are the Tino albums, which are some of the best break/dub/la t i n mashup albums ever. Jack Dangers' solo work is worth looking into as well.

and kids today think dub step was created by skrillex. HA!
Woo! Alright.....
The best part f the 80's and 90's.
Re-make of Psyche Out - Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll - one of their best efforts.
Just a Wicked Group!!
Dog Star Man best track
harela2
i'M 30 YEARS BEHIND - LOVE THEIR WORK, Animatrix, Martinot Waves - great beat, rythem an is comlex (sounds like a nice wine!)
I agree 99% is essential. Hello teenage america.
steveffg
I got to go with Acid again as the best Meat Beat track
why isnt 99% in the discog, this is probably one of the greatest albums of the 90s
It's in my brain now
When the axe swings, then the fun begins!

Always one of my absolute favorite bands. I used to collect everything they released. Just awesome.

"Marrs needs women!"
"God-like position is a man-made condition"
"I don't know where she takes me but I like it there"
It's That shirt
I am a zombie!
their website has a few downloadable tracks that you won't find on any releases. Great stuff. Jack Dangers INVENTED D&B
Cute picture, but I'm sure they don't look like that now. One of the best electronic groups around.
I love Meat Beat Manifesto. I've been listening to them since Satyricon came out. I'm missing a couple of the latest releases but I know they will make me happy when I get them.
Meat Beat Manifesto are a cornerstone of my musical taste, and to this day 99% is on my "top 100".. too bad their early stuff isnt on here, its really incredible in its own rights.
I listened to my 99% CD until it got so scratched up it wouldn't play any more. I thought that me and the guy who suggested I buy the CD were the only two people who knew who they were.
this band is f**kin hott im f**kin sweatin bulllets!!!! their show is a f**kin trip on acid!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! !
I remember these guys back in the early 90's. As a 15 yr old kid playing with LSD it made for some fantastic strange times. Nowadays it's a welcome break from the usual techno buzz.
