-In 1986, [[Marc Plainguet]] and [[Mike Futch]] teamed up with Shaka and formed ​a band called Crazed Bunnyz. Using pseudonyms like Futch, Shaka, [[Gadget]] (Plainguet) and Box (the name of Gadget’s drum machine) they played an odd sort of punk rock using a bass synthesizer and drum machine. Soon, they recorded //Achtung: Musik Klirrfaktor!//​ and found themselves in the Christian underground scene which, until then, they did not even realized existed. A small following began to pop up across the United States and even overseas through their small mail order catalog.+In 1986, after releasing one tape under the name [[Nutty Faith]], [[Marc ​Plainguet|Marc "​Gadget" ​Plainguet]] and [[Mike ​Bing Futch]] teamed up with Sean "Shaka" Harrison to form a band called Crazed Bunnyz.
