Vs Mona Mur, En Esch
En Esch and Günter Schulz formed Slick Idiot after the temporary breakup of KMFDM in 1999. They carried with them several of the distinctive sounds that made KMFDM one of the leading industrial innovators of the 80’s and 90’s. Slick Idiot’s music is more than club-worthy, with pulsating beats and swift synthetic sounds, but it also contains a solid industrial metal foundation with thrashing innovation by Günter’s unique guitar stylings and En Esch’s funky beats and gruff vocals. Add to it, soul, provided by vocalist Erica Dilanjian and the additional programming and live drumming of Gregg Ziemba, and Slick Idiot provides many points of sonic titillation.
Since its inception Slick Idiot has released 3 studio albums (“DickNity”, “SCREWtinized” and “Sucksess”) along with 2 remix albums (“Redickulous” and “xSCREWciating”). The band followed each release with a major U.S. tour and recently completed the “In The Flesh Tour” to promote the new release of “Sucksess”, which saw the band play 44 cities from coast to coast.
