He has also participated in many Productions, & Collaborations outside of MBM including Consolidated, Disposable Heroes of Hip Hoprisy, Public Enemy, EBN, Globo, Tino and more. As said in the past "In the Beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove"...

   Jonny Stephens Left Meat Beat Manifesto in 1994 to pursue his own solo project, Fire Escape. His debut release Abandon Head is quite excellent! He has also done remixes or production for Schaft, Hayato Mizuta, & more...

Mark Pistel  (Current Band Member)

   Credited for Sound on 99% tour with Consolidated. Also a key figure in Consolidated. As they say "Yo Pistel Activate the Bass"... Has worked on a number of other projects as well, including The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, Bass Kittens, and solo debut Pistel which is definitely worth picking up!

   He also substituted for band member Jon Wilson on the Actual Sounds & Voices tour. Currently, Mark is supplying keys, samples, and loops for a project called Ledenhed

   "A.K.A Colin James. Present for the "birth" of MBM...Arguably co-producer on STS, AAA and all singles up to Dog Star Man."

Marcus Adams Pirannah Jones

   A.K.A Marcus Adams. He was friends with guitarist in Perennial Divide and then went to dance college in London. Meat Beat happened and Dangers and Adams became primary collaboraters... He helped in the creation of videos for broadcast and performances with the other dancers.

   Aided in graphic design for Meat Beat Manifesto release "99%" (The spikey texture). Was in charge of visuals and latex props for live shows during the first two tours. The masks on "Psyche-Out" were also made by Craig as well as the brilliant costumes and sets for "Strap Down" video.

  Still designing under the name Craig Morrison Design. His creations are sold in various stores in the UK & US. I definitely need to get me one of those latex loveseats one of these days!
