Disciplina Kičme - Svi Za Mnom! (1986)

Disciplina Kicme to jeden z najciekawszych i najbardziej pomysłowych zespołów byłej Jugosławii wywodzących się z kręgów znakomicie tam radzącej sobie nowej fali i post-punka. Założony został w Belgradzie w 1981 roku przez basistę Dusana ''Koja'' Kojica (ex-Sarlo Akrobata) oraz perkusistę Nenada ''Kele'' Krasavaca (ex-Urbana Gerila). Ich muzyka jak na owe czasy innowacyjna, pełna impulsywności, oparta była głównie na brzmieniu mocno zniekształconej gitary basowej i dobitnej perkusji, do których z czasem dołączyły agresywna trąbka i saksofon. Twórczość zespołu ewoluowała czasem od punk-rocka, poprzez punk z elementami funky aż nawet po klimaty jungle, co często spotyka się z nieprzychylnością zwolenników początkowego kierunku muzycznego tej ekipy.

Disciplina Kičme (English: Spinal Discipline; currently working under the slightly altered name of Disciplin A Kitschme), is a Serbian band, one of the two spin-offs of the seminal Yugoslav New Wave and later post-punk band 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 Hendrix and Motown.

The band was formed by former Limunovo Drvo and Šarlo Akrobata bassist and vocalist Dušan Kojić Koja in late 1981 with former Urbana Gerila drummer Nenad Krasavac Kele. The lineup also featured Radnička Kontrola bassist 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 Army and was replaced by former Radnička Kontrola drummer Srđan Todorović Žika.

The band prepared material for their debut album, but due to the non-commercial musical style, the major Yugoslav record labels denied releasing it. Eventually, Sviđa mi se da ti ne bude prijatno (I like when you feel uncomfortable) was released by Slovenian record label Helidon in 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 Partibrejkers guitarist Nebojša Antonijević Anton (signed as Riki Rif). The tracks "Uživaj" ("Enjoy"), "Zgodne kretnje" ("Attractive movement"), "Mladost ne opravdava besvest" ("Youth does not justify senselessness") and "Nemoj" ("Do not") presented Kojić's dominant basslines combined with the aggressive 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 Yugoslav anthem "Hej Sloveni", stylistically similar to the Jimi Hendrix cover 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 EP called 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 1986 by 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 Sad band Boye which collaborated with Kojić on the next releases. Other guest appearances featured Električni Orgazam guitarist 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 Banja radio 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 USA where he lives today.

In the early 1987, the band celebrated the fifth anniversary and released a live album, Najlepši hitovi! Uživo!, recorded on November 3 and 4 1986 at the Belgrade club "Akademija". The album was recorded with an eight channel technique without additional studio works. The album was released by PGP RTB records. 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 EP called 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 Dugme is 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, Ivan Vdović Vd, Srđan Todorović and Roze Poze guitarist 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 1989 by 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 1990 Kojić appeared on MTV show "120 Minutes" and the promotional video for the English version of "Dečija pesma" ("Children song") was broadcast. In the meantime Kojić, with Vlada Divljan and 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 Haustor drummer Srđan Gulić Gul and former Pop Mašina and 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 Dah song "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.

On March and June 1991 at 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 / 1997 protests in Belgrade. The last concerts the band held in August 1991 in Kopar and Pula. In 1992 Kojić went to London and Zerkman went to Holland... (wikipeda)
