God Save the Queen/Under Heavy Manners is the second solo album by Robert Fripp, released on the Polydor Records label in 1980 (US catalogue no. PD-1-6266). The album largely consists of Frippertronics, with much of the work being performed by improvisation. On the Under Heavy Manners side of the album, the effect was modified in what Fripp described as "Discotronics", adding a solid drum beat and bass line to create a dancier sound.

Initial copies included a (Fripp photo + liner notes) innersleeve and a postcard (Robert Fripp sitting on his stool, performing Frippertronics). Label/cat appear on sleeve as: E'G Records Deluxe EG LP 105. Compiled at the Hit Factory, New York. Matrix, Runout (Side 1): EGLP 105A // 1 ∇ ESTR STRAWBERRY.

Despite the double title, this is a single album consisting of five examples of "Frippertronics," Fripp's word for his instrumental tape loop experiments, some also called "Discotronics" to indicate more of a rhythmic impulse. Talking Head David Byrne sings the words to "Under Heavy Manners," most of which consist of words ending in the suffix "ism.

Fripp conceptually considered the Frippertronics of God Save the Queen and the Discotronics-based Under Heavy Manners as two independent pieces contained within one album, leading to the duality of the album's title, and the album's sides being designated as "Side A" and "Side One"  .
