-In 1986, [[Marc Plainguet|Marc "​Gadget"​ Plainguet]] and [[Mike/Bing Futch]] teamed up with Sean "​Shaka"​ Harrison to form 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, apparently influenced by [[Undercover]],​ they recorded //Achtung: Musik Klirrfaktor!//​ in Marc's garage. They played one live gig and also 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, [[Marc Plainguet|Marc "​Gadget"​ Plainguet]] and [[Mike Bing Futch]] teamed up with Sean "​Shaka"​ Harrison to form a band called Crazed Bunnyz.
