Artist Biography by

A pioneer of Christian industrial music who also uses elements of dance, folk, punk and salsa, Marc Plainguet has released 14 albums since 1986 (11 as himself, two as Gadget and one as Graveyard Cafe). His first band was Nutty Faith, formed in 1985 with Mike Futch. The duo released It's Our Job! on Futch's Plan 7 label. Plainguet and Futch added Shaka the following year and became Crazed Bunnyz, a punk band with synthesized bass and drums. Bored with life in a band, Marc Plainguet released the solo cassette Amebas in Love and, after Crazed Bunnyz broke up, World Media and Demovision. All three appeared in 1986 on his own Corpqii label. Plainguet's first release as Gadget was Joyful Noize in 1987, the same year he issued Blood & Fire as himself. Between Gadget's first and second releases (Gnashing of Teeth), he issued Security Shelter (1988) a self-titled album (1989), Surrealism for Beginners (1989), Cats Welcome You Home (1989) and Strange Tales (1990). His next three releases, recorded as Marc Plainguet, were Security Shelter Hope, Surrealism for Beginners and Strange Tales. Electric Campfire Songs and Live at Cornerstone '90 both appeared in 1991, and Plainguet released Fresh Ground as Graveyard Cafe the next year.
