 "If electronic industrialist Marc Plainguet (pronounced Plan-J) is anything, he’s imaginative. It is unusual to find someone so unafraid to go against the grain and offer sounds that both challenge the established norm and stimulate the much neglected grey matter between the ears. His ever changing style has embraced everything from industrial noise and post modern dance to requiems and humorous punk-folk storytelling. His lyrics bombard his listener with some of the oddest visual pictures on could imagine. Skeletons at Disneyland, a suitcase toting Godzilla looking for work in Hollywood, melting clocks, choking cats, televisions with eyes, psychotic TV preachers, old factories grinding out machine laden rhythms, and microscopic amebas who fall in love to a Latin salsa beat are only a few specks from Plainguet’s menagerie of supporting cast members. ​ "If electronic industrialist Marc Plainguet (pronounced Plan-J) is anything, he’s imaginative.

-In 1985, Plainguet and soloist [[Mike / Bing Futch|Mike Futch]] formed a strange duo called [[Nutty Faith]]. As [[Nutty Faith]] the two produced a cassette release titled //It’s Our Job!// and released it on the streets through Futch’s [[Plan 7 Distribution]] label. ​+In 1985, Plainguet and soloist [[Mike_Bing_Futch|Mike Futch]] formed a strange duo called [[Nutty Faith]].

 That next year, Plainguet and 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. It was during this time that Plainguet started doing some recording of his own on a four track. ​ That next year, Plainguet and Futch teamed up with Shaka and formed a band called [[Crazed Bunnyz]].

 "The packaging for the original 14-song cassette only release of this project was completely designed by Yambar and came with an activity book and props so you could actually participate in the ‘physical adventure’ as well as the audio experience. There was even a phone number for you to call in order to get a secret message from Marc (aka: Pastor Smilin’ Jack Stomach Pump) which got updated every once in awhile and was available to callers for several years. The cassette and booklet package also included a pair of signed and numbered surgical gloves. The original packaging was overhauled for a new millennium CD release but still kept plenty of Yambar’s artwork intact, including the infamous ‘Prayboy’ logo parody. This project was also available with a variant electronic book for more hi-tech listeners. The Prayboy logo made its way onto several dozen t-shirts which raised even more eyebrows than those gloves! An ever-evolving and maddening audio magic moment!"​ (from [[http://​www.yambar.com/​audio/​corpqiiarts.html]]) "The packaging for the original 14-song cassette only release of this project was completely designed by Yambar and came with an activity book and props so you could actually participate in the ‘physical adventure’ as well as the audio experience.
