The Constructus Corporation is was project of [a=Watkin Tudor Jones], who was previously in rap rock/jazz hip-hop act [a=Max Normal].

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 musical/production talents of [a=Sibot] and [a=Markus Wormstorm], female vocalist Anica The Snuffling (aka [a=Yolandi Visser]) and producer [a=Felix Laband] to form The Constructus Corporation, which in late 2002 managed to deliver one of South African music’s most original concept albums- the 2CD / hardcover graphic novel/album package The Ziggurat, which combines futuristic storytelling and sound effects with vocal performances.

The 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).

Watkin and Yolandi have nowadays become better known as [a=Die Antwoord], whereas Sibot and Markus Wormstrom later callobrated as [a=Real Estate Agents, The].
