Disciplina Kičme (English: "Spinal Discipline"; currently working under the slightly altered name of Disciplin A Kitschme), is a
Serbianband, one of the two spin-offs of the seminal Yugoslav New Waveand later post-punkband Šarlo Akrobata, the other being Ekatarina Velika. Musically, they are best described as an aggressive and artistic rhythmic explosion, experimenting and seeking out new expressiveness while finding inspiration in the traditions of Punk rock, Funk, Jazz fusion, Jimi Hendrixand Motown.
The Belgrade years (1982–1995)
The band was formed by former Limunovo Drvo and
Šarlo Akrobatabassist and vocalist Dušan Kojić Koja in late 1981with former Urbana Geriladrummer Nenad Krasavac Kele. The lineup also featured Radnička Kontrolabassist Srđan Marković Đile, but after a short period of time, he left the band. The following year Krasavac went to serve the Yugoslav People's Armyand was replaced by former Radnička Kontroladrummer Srđan Todorović Žika.
The band prepared material for their debut album, but due to the non-commercial musical style, the major
Yugoslavrecord labels denied releasing it. Eventually, "Sviđa mi se da ti ne bude prijatno" (I like when you feel uncomforatble) was released by Slovenian record label Helidonin early 1983. The record producer was Kojić with the help of Toni Jurij (one of the producers of the Šarlo Akrobata album " Bistriji ili tuplji čovek biva kad...") and Partibrejkersguitarist Nebojša Antonijević Anton (signed as Riki Rif). The tracks "Uživaj" ("Enjoy"), "Zgodne kretnje" ("Attractive movement"), "Mladost ne oravdava besvest" ("Youth does not justify senselessness") and "Nemoj" ("Do not") presented Kojić's dominat basslines combined with the agressive sound of Todorović's drums, similar to the style of Šarlo Akrobata drummer Ivica Vdović Vd. A rerecorded Šarlo Akrobata unreleased track "Pečati" ("Stamps"), written by Kojić, appeared on the album featuring a part of the Yugoslavanthem " Hej Sloveni", stylistically similar to the Jimi Hendrixcover of the " The Star-Spangled Banner". The album was printed in a very small circulation and was rereleased on cassette by "Slovenija" record label in 1987, but did not help the band to gain wider audience popularity. The band continued playing in major Yugoslav cities, mainly in clubs.
The next release was an
EPcalled "Ja imam šarene oči" (I have colorful eyes), with the track "Novac neće doći" ("Money will not come") as the most notable track, released by Slovenian record label Dokumentarna in 1985. Todorović did the drums and Krasavac appeared only on the intro for the track "Sviđa mi se..." ("I like...") and on "28. jun 1984" ("June 28th 1984") recorded live at Belgrade's SKC on the same date as the song title. Kojić produced the EP(which he did on all later releases) and for the first time included a trumpet in the lineup, played by Jugoslav Muškinja.
The album "Svi za mnom" (Everybody, follow me), released in
1986by Helidon, brought some lineup and style changes. The album was recorded by Kojić with drummers Krasavac and Todorović and a brass section featuring Zoran Erkman also known as Zerkman and Dedža on trumpets and Branislav Trivić on saxophone. Backing vocals on the album were done by the members of the Novi Sadband Boyewhich collaborated with Kojić on the next releases. Other guest appearances featured Električni Orgazamguitarist Branislav Petrović Banana who did the backing vocals and former Radnička Kontrola guitarist Darko Milojković appeared as percussionist. A cover of the popular Yu Grupa song "Čudna šuma" ("The strange forest"), originally recorded in 1973, appeared as the opening track on the album. Kojić also partially used a violin theme of the Smetana' Humoreska on the track "Zašto" ("Why") and some acoustic guitar sections on the instrumental version of "Čudna šuma" called "Šuma igra" ("The forest is dancing"). The track "Ovo je zvuk" ("This is the sound") featured a part of the interview Kojić did for Vrnjačka Banjaradio and "Ne, ne, ne" ("No, no, no") featured lyrics from the " Marš na Drinu" ("March on the Drina"), a Serbian patriotic World War I song. The mentioned tracks became popular and, for the first time in the band's history, were taken seriously by the media and the critics. After the record release Krasavac moved to the USAwhere he lives today.
In the early
1987, the band celebrated the fifth anniversary and released a live album, "Najlepši hitovi! Uživo!", recorded on November3 and 4 1986at the Belgradeclub "Akademija". The album was recorded with an eight channel technique without additional studio works. The album was released by PGP RTBrecords. In the meantime Todorović joined Ekatarina Velika and was replaced by former Limunovo Drvo and Katarina II drummer Dušan Dejanović and former Film and Dee Dee Mellow saxophonist Jurij Novoselić Kuzma replaced Dedža.
The same record label released an
EPcalled "Dečija pesma" (Children song) featuring five different versions of the song "Dečija pesma", children, disco, early, hit and superior mix of the track. The song lyrics featured the verse "Nije dobro Bijelo Dugme; Nije dobra Katarina; Šta je dobro; Šta nam treba; Kičme, Kičme Disciplina") (" Bijelo Dugmeis not good; Neither is Katarina; What is good; What we need; Kičme, Kičme Disciplina"). As guests on the EP appeared Yu grupa guitarist Dragi Jelić, Ivica Vdović Vd, Žika Todorović and Roze Pozeguitarist Željko Nikolić. Ironic cover versions of Robert Palmer's " Addicted To Love" and The Cult " Love Removal Machine", recorded live at "Akademija", also appeared on the EP.
The same lineup recorded the album "Zeleni Zub na Planeti Dosade" (Green Tooth at the Boredom Planet), released in
1989by PGP RTB, with the tracks "Tata i mama" ("Dad and mum"), "Ah, kakva sreća" ("Oh, what happiness"), "Iza 9 brda" ("Behind 9 hills") and "Betmen, Mandrak, Fantom" (" Batman, Mandrake, Phantom"). In February 1990Kojić appeared on MTVshow " 120 Minutes" and the promotional video for the English version of "Dečija pesma" ("Children song") was broadcast. In the meantime Kojić, with Vlada Divljanand Srđan Gojković Gile, recorded the soundtrack for the movie "Kako je propao rokenrol" (The fall of rock 'n' roll) and appeared in the movie as the super-hero Zeleni Zub.
The album "Nova iznenađenja za nova pokolenja" (New surpriezes for new generations), released in early
1991, featured former Haustordrummer Srđan Gulić Gul and former Pop Mašinaand Innamorata i Papatra drummer Dušan Đukić Đuka on goč (a Serbian folk drum). The album featured the usage of sampled music, on "Buka u modi" ("Noise in fashion", featurinh a sampled riff of the Dahsong "Noćna buka" ("Night noise")), "Zlopamtilo" ("Grudge-bearer", featuring a part of the Yu Grupa song "Bio jednom jedan pas" ("Once uppon a time there was a dog")) and "Zemlja svetlosti" ("The land of light", featuring chorus of the Time song "Rokenrol u Beogradu" ("Rock 'n' Roll in Belgrade")) which is a cover version of the Pop Mašina single. "Buka u modi" was also released on single with a different version of the track on the B-side. At the time Kojić was also playing the guitar in the ad hoc band Kod Tri Balona performing cover versions of Atomsko Sklonište, Buldožer, Pop Mašina, Smak and Yu Grupa.
Marchand June 1991at the students' protest in Belgrade, Kojić's lyrics "Vreme je za pravdu; Vreme je za istinu" ("It is time for justice; It is time for the truth") were shouted and the song "Buka u modi" became an unofficial anthem of the Winter 1996/ 1997protests in Belgrade. The last concerts the band held in August 1991in Koparand Pula. In 1992Kojić went to Londonand Zerkman went to Holland.
The London years (1995–2003)
After performing cover versions of
Yugoslav rocksong with Serbianmusicians in Londonand working with local musicians in the bands It's Good To Smoke and Brushstick blues, Kojić decided to reform Disciplina Kičme. In the meantime he started performing as Black Tooth and with an African-American singer Gofie Bebe and drummer Pete Warren (also known as Beat) from Aucklandreformed the band with an altered name, Disciplin A Kitschme. Beat used to work with the bands DD Smash from Australiaand various American bands and Gofie Bebe debuted in Disciplin A Kitschme.
The band performed in minor clubs in
Englandand in Spring 1996they found their own record label, Babaroga records, for which they released an EP "Have You Ever Heard Of Any Other Rhythm?", featuring three versions of the song "Have You Ever Heard Of Any Other Rhythm?" (English version of "Da li znaš za neki drugi ritam") and the song "I've Got Those Technicoloured Eyes". In Novemberthe band released the album "I Think I See Myself On CCTV" featuring the songs from the EP and English versions of Disciplina Kičme songs, "Do Not" ("Nemoj"), "Oh Why" ("Zašto"), "Children Song" ("Dečija pesma") and "Is That Really All?" ("Zar je to sve").

The next album, "Heavy Bass Blues", released in 1998beside the new material featured a cover version of the John D. Loudermilksong Tobacco Road. Only two Disciplina Kičme songs appeared on the album, "Noize In Fashion" ("Buka u modi") and "High Temperature Man" ("Čovek sa visokom temperaturom"). Co-producer of the album was Skip McDonaldwho also did backing vocals on the track "Bedroom Muzik" featuring the lyrics "You got a mouse in your hand; You need no people in a band" as a comment on the media and record label attitude towards musicians.

In the meantime the band released a CD single featuring three versions of the song "Da Answer", signed as Tooth-Goofie-Nappy.
