An absolutely bizarre mix of rap, spoken word, computer sounds, sampled instruments, huge orchestral arranging and a New York dance beat all supporting the narrated tale of OZN's Robert Ozn aka Dada Nada encounter with a gorgeous Swedish tourist in early 80s Manhattan. The video made OZN a bona fide rock star and EBN Ned Liben the reigning mad scientist. computer geek musician of the New York music scene of the early to mid 80s.

Emerging out of the fallout from the disbandment of Audio Adrenaline and Mark Stuart’s personal problems, the project has been described by Stuart and McGinniss, as "an ever-changing group of musicians from a variety of backgrounds who come together to create worship music while sharing their unique experiences and testimonies," and "a ground-breaking initiative that combines worship music with stories of hope and inspiration." Stuart further elaborated it as being "driven from an emerging style of worship and a place of vulnerability. We go on a journey together through the good, bad and ugly to the redemptive side." The project’s self-titled debut album was released March 1, 2011.
