    General CommentThis live, semi-improvised piece would turn out to be a go-to song for TG during later concerts. It's definitely "Industrial Music for Industrial People"--the motto of the record label that TG founded.

    The physical packaging for the "Discipline" single adds a bit of context to the noise symphony heard on the record:

    "Center labels are cream with black printing. Glossy picture sleeve of TG group stood outside ex-Nazi Ministry of Propaganda in Berlin on front and Val Denham holding Hitler Youth dagger centre back. The words 'Techno Primitive' scratched on side A and 'Psykick Youth Squad' on side B. Both tracks were later released on the CD version of 20 Jazz Funk Greats."

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
    discogs.com/…

    TG weren't scared of controversy in their heyday, but they also had a playful side. Here, one might think that they're simply taking the piss out of fascist attitudes. Well, they are, but I'm of the mind that TG also had their finger on the pulse of the times. Trouble was brewing. The 70s were no picnic either, but their invocation of Nazism right after détente is no accident.

    The Cold War wasn't over yet by 1981, and things would get worse before getting better.


    p.s. Transcribing the lyrics for this song was a bitch. Fun, but still a bitch.
