2002 – 2003 (1 year)
The Constructus Corporation is another project of the inspirational Waddy Jones, who previously surprised the world with Max Normal, a hip-hop-like project with a style never before seen.
In early 2002, having summarily disbanded Max Normal (just as they were cracking mainstream cross-over) and relocated from Johannesburg to Cape Town, Mr Jones assembled the production talents of Sibot, Markus Wormstorm and Felix Laband and managed in late 2002 to deliver one of South African music's most original concept albums ever - the off the map 2CD / hardcover graphic novel/album package The Ziggurat, which combines futuristic storytelling and sound effects with vocal performances, comics and much much more…
The original package also included a blank CD, meant for a free 2nd album downloadable from African Dope Records.
Unfortunately the band self-destructed after a farcical 6 week delay in the album's release (involving wrong cliche designs being printed, customs confiscating and then losing 3000 cds, and a printing bill over which a dispute with the label's distributor almost bankrupted African Dope), leaving Mr Jones to pursue fresh directions (such as the Watkin Tudor Jones solo project, Max Normal.tv and his current incarnation as Ninja, the lead rapper of Die Antwoord.
