Sentences I thought I’d never get to say: I met En Esch of KMFDM and Pigface! Klaus Schandelmaier aka En Esch was in town touring with Mona Mur and I was fortunate enough to go back stage and chat with the industrial music legend prior to his show the other night at Europa in Brooklyn. He was extremely cool and even thanked me for my interest after autographing several KMFDM cds for me! Too cool. On a funny note, when KMFDM first came out, the rumours were that the letters stood for Kill Mother Fucking Depeche Mode or my favorite, Kill Moshers For Doc Martens. The beauty of the internet reveals that KMFDM actually stands for “Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid” which translates to “No pity for the majority.” Glad I finally cleared that up. Thanks so much to En Esch for all the great music past, present and future and for being so awesome during our encounter!
