Biography

Immoral Discipline was formed in Washington D.C. in November of 1986 with singer, Shawn Garard and lead guitarist, Bill Gerber writing lyrics and music in a basement that belonged to their friend Keith Sturges while searching for a bass player and a drummer to round out the band. A short time later, they added their close friend Jimmy Wood (R.I.P.) on bass and as fate would have it, he was stabbed to death before the band’s third practice together. Wanting to pay tribute to Jimmy at a benefit show in his memory, Shawn and Bill asked John Allen to fill in on bass and recruited drummer, Bryan Kelly (who was in another local band Bill played for called What Happened?) to play the show. The Jimmy Wood Memorial Concert took place on December 14, 1986 at D.C.’s Hung Jury Pub. Having only 6 songs in their set, this first incarnation of Immoral Discipline played two sets and got a good response from the crowd. Wanting to add some variety to the D.C. scene and to give their friends a band that they could call their own, Shawn and Bill decided to keep the band together.

Bryan stayed on as the bands drummer, and Todd Greene joined the band as a permanent bass player, staying on until the bands end. This line-up started playing shows in the D.C. Metro. area on a regular basis and began to make it’s mark on the local scene. Bryan leaving for college prompted a change in drummers; “Bhatman” took over on drums.
