Discipline. gained a following in the Detroit area partly because they performed challenging, original music, and partly due to their strange live shows. Lead singer, Matthew Parmenter, delivered each song in a different costume behind a thick coat of mime's makeup.
After the release of Push & Profit, Discipline. played numerous shows throughout the U.S., sharing bills with new and established artists such as Ozric Tentacles, Steve Howe of Yes, Anekdoten, and Echolyn. Discipline. has been featured on radio shows in Europe and North and South America, and the band flew to Norway for a tour directed by a Norwegian college. Push & Profit (1993) was released on the independent label, Strung Out Records.
STRUNG OUT RECORDS:
Strung Out Records released Discipline.'s studio CDs, "Push & Profit" (1993) and "Unfolded Like Staircase" (1997), as well as Matthew Parmenter's solo CD "astray" (2004). The independent label also produced the definitive visual record of the band in concert: "Discipline. Live 1995" (DVD 2005).
