Throbbing Gristle - Discipline


On this date in 1981, Throbbing Gristle released their fifth single, "Discipline". The B side was also "Discipline". Both tracks were live, one recorded in Manchester, the other in Berlin. Neither version appeared on an album initially but both were included on the CD re-release of their third "studio" album, 20 Jazz Funk Greats (third album with some studio tracks, that is). The London post punk/experimental band is credited as being one of the founders of industrial music. While most of their releases were live albums over the course of their career, they did release some studio material and lasted until 1981. Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson formed Psychic TV. Throbbing Gristle re-formed in 2004 and have been somewhat active.
