Discipline is an album by the band King Crimson, released in 1981. This album was King Crimson's first album following a seven-year hiatus. Only founder Robert Fripp and later addition Bill Bruford remained from previous incarnations. Fripp brought in Frank Zappa and David Bowie alumnus Adrian Belew (guitar, vocals) and Peter Gabriel alumnus Tony Levin (bass, Chapman Stick) to round out a quartet. The album resulted in a more updated 1980s new wave pre-techno sound mixed with the previous dark and heavy sounds of the 1970s. ImageMetadata File history File links King_Crimson_Discipline. ...

Song notes

"Matte Kudasai" (Japanese: 待って下さい) means for "please wait for me". The original release of Discipline featured only one version of "Matte Kudasai", with a guitar part by Robert Fripp that was removed from the track on a subsequent release of the album. The latest versions of the album to be released contains both versions of the song - track 3, "Matte Kudasai", without Robert Fripp's original guitar part; and track 8, "Matte Kudasai (alternative version)", with the guitar part included.

The lyrics of "Indiscipline" were based on a letter written to Adrian Belew by his then wife Margaret. The letter concerned a sculpture that she had made. Adrian Belew in concert, November 2006. ...


"Thela Hun Ginjeet" is an anagram of "heat in the jungle". When it was first performed live, some of its lyrics were based on an illicit recording made by Robert Fripp of his neighbours having a vicious argument when he was living in New York. (This recording is featured on the track "NY3", on Fripp's solo album Exposure.) While "Thela Hun Ginjeet" track was being recorded for the Discipline album, Adrian Belew, walking around Notting Hill Gate in London with a tape recorder looking for inspiration, was harassed first by a gang and then by the police. On returning to the studio, he gave a distraught account to his bandmates of what had just happened to him. This account was recorded by Fripp without Belew's knowledge as well, and is featured on the Discipline version of the track, in place of those earlier lyrics that were based on Fripp's New York recording. An anagram (Greek ana- = back or again, and graphein = to write) is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce other words, using all the original letters exactly once. ...

"The Sheltering Sky" is named after and partially inspired by the 1949 novel of the same name by Paul Bowles. Bowles is often associated with the Beat generation, which would be an inspiration for King Crimson's subsequent studio album Beat.

Ground and Sky review - King Crimson - Discipline (1271 words)
Discipline was originally the band's name, with Bruford and Fripp from the previous 70s incarnation of Crimson joining up with guitarist/vocalist Adrian Belew (fresh from Frank Zappa's band) and bassist Tony Levin (who has played in innumerable jazz and rock bands).
On their first album, songs like "Elephant Talk", "Frame By Frame", "Thela Hun Ginjeet" (an anagram for Heat in the Jungle) and the title track showed the band's new style of having the nimble melody lines of each of the stringed instruments play off one another to create almost hypnotic patterns.
In short, Discipline is perhaps the most successful and in a sense truly 'progressive' comeback of a prog rock group that had been away for seven years.
Tentative Review by The Christopher Currie: King Crimson - Discipline (1143 words)
Originally entitled "Discipline", the unit was to serve as the opening volley of Fripp's curiously titled (though sadly prophetic, in the light of subsequent albums) "decline to '84".
Discipline captures the group at the crest of their artistic purpose, and is the definitive statement of the unit.
And, finally, "Discipline" closes the album with a statement of controlled expressivity, using the skills of all group members to create a successful whole (though the cymbal crashes in the middle of the piece serve as a momentary disruption).
