Ed Finkle played in a few alternative rock bands in the early '90s but bought a drum machine and began experimenting with industrial sounds. In college in 1993, he worked as a vocalist and drum programmer in the group Manhole Vortex with Paul Seegers. Finkle began more solo work, recording a demo tape as Bubblegum Crisis. The death metal band Adversary recruited him for drum programming, though he continued to record on his own. In 1995, Finkle recorded another demo, this time as Cult of Jester. He has also recorded tracks for two compilations: Construction 009 (Arts Industria, 1995) and Electro-Shock Therapy (R.E.X. Music, 1995).
