-=== Discography:​ ===+Gadget has come to be known as [[Marc Plainguet]]'​s industrial alter ego. In 1987 Marc Plainguet began to become interested in trying a style of music he had only delved into a little. Inspired by early industrial music by groups like S.P.K.and Laibach he recorded //Joyful Noize//. Using no traditional instruments that would create melody or tonal scales, the music was crafted purely of noise elements, digital samples, and metallic percussion. What started as an experiment turned out to be considered one of the best industrial music recording ever done by a Christian in the late 1980s. Gadget was in fact the second Christian industrial musician in music history coming only after [[Blackhouse]]. In 1990, after a long absence in recording, Gadget returned with his follow up titled //Gnashing Of Teeth// and an expanded and more aggressive sound. Whereas //Joyful Noize// was largely improvised, //Gnashing Of Teeth// was tightly arranged. Now, after another long hiatus Gadget returned with a track on the compilation //Electro Shock Therapy// which is a heavily mechanical reworking of "​Amazing Grace" with Francine Plainguet on vocals and work has just begun on the third (and final) Gadget project tentatively titled //Cruel & Inhuman Practices//​.
