Ed Finkle played in a few choice rock rings in the first ’90s but bought a drum machine and began tinkering with commercial sounds. In university in 1993, he proved helpful being a vocalist and drum programmer in the group Manhole Vortex with Paul Seegers. Finkle started more solo function, recording a demonstration tape as Bubblegum Turmoil. The death steel music group Adversary recruited him for drum coding, though he continuing to record by himself. In 1995, Finkle documented another demo, this time around as Cult of Jester. He in addition has recorded tracks for just two compilations: Structure 009 (Arts Industria, 1995) and Electro-Shock Therapy (R.E.X. Music, 1995).
