Coming to rescue Industrial Music fans stranded in a land of complacency are EN ESCH and GUENTER SCHULZ, together as SLICK IDIOT.
Legends in the Industrial music world, EN ESCH and GUENTER SCHULZ came together in their native Germany in the 1980’s and have worked together ever since.Frontman, guitarist, programmer and drummer En Esch worked with Sascha Konietzko in KMFDM since 1984. With many illustre collaborators, a whole lotta sampling technology, drum machines, guitars and vocal processing, they laid the foundations for the industrial rock scene with fellow colleagues such as Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Pigface, Die Krupps and many more.
Günter Schulz joined in 1990 for KMFDM's release "Naive" with a fierce understanding of the guitar, introducing some of the most remarkable and unmistakeable guitar riffs of his time.
ESCH and SCHULZ left the groundbreaking industrial powerhouse in 1999 forming their own project, SLICK IDIOT.
“This is how crossover between guitars and electronics have to sound: pure cyber-rock & roll! “ (SIDE-LINE)
“.. a twisted brand of techno-driven industrial rock, yet still retaining those signature elements that many still miss from KMFDM - SCHULZ's versatile and technical fretwork and EN ESCH’s gritty and sexually charged vocals.” (ReGen Magazine)
