"Discipline" may be Throbbing Gristle's most infamous song. First played at the S036 Club in Berlin (as documented on the single), it was at first entirely improvised, based upon a topic suggestion given by Cosey Fanni Tutti before the show. The song is driven by a minimal, pulsing synthesizer drumbeat, over which Genesis P-Orridge would declaim lyrics surrounding the concept of discipline, slowly introducing other musical elements, such as electric bass and walls of guitar or synth noise. After Berlin, it was played at nearly every TG show up to the group's demise. Often it would range in length from eight to twelve minutes, although it could be stretched out much longer: A version from one of their last shows at the Lyceum in London was over half an hour, as documented on the bootleg "Once Upon a Time" and the VHS release "Destiny".
