The disciplines (Norway)

Made up of three Norwegians and one American, The Disciplines sound more native to Brit-rock’s T. Rex and The Kooks than anyone from their homelands. With meaty guitar chunks flailing about like the embers of a bonfire cradled in form-fitted slings of bass swells, The Disciplines stuff their songs with fever-pitch flurries and soft, smoldering thrusts that show muscle in the band’s chord movements.

Ken Stringfellow lives in Paris. He was in some other bands. He met some guys from Norway. They were in some other bands. Then, they got together and became the greatest rock & roll band of all time. The end.
