En Esch, born near Frankfurt, is a studied orchestra percussionist, drummer, programmer, producer, guitarist and singer. He was a member of the German industrial rock group, KMFDM, from 1985 to 1999, during which time he contributed to ten studio albums and more than a dozen singles as musician, composer and producer. Sascha Konietzko claims to have given Esch his nickname because the latter felt that his real name was inappropriate for the stage. It is derived from the German pronunciation of the first sounds in his name. Esch lived in Germany until 1992, when he moved to Chicago to join Konietzko, who had moved there a year earlier. It was at this time that Esch first worked with Pigface, whom he also toured with in the early 1990s.

He released a solo album, Cheesy, in 1993 along with the single, Confidence. A few years after that, Esch moved to New Orleans. When KMFDM temporarily broke up in 1999, Esch briefly worked with the band Pizza Whore, which changed its name to Barely Legal, and included Trixie Reiss of The Crystal Method. The band didn't last, and Esch began traveling to Canada to visit Günter Schulz, the former KMFDM guitarist. They formed Slick Idiot, and released their first album in 2001.

They have released two more albums under that moniker since then. Esch has since begun working actively with Pigface again, joining them on tour in 2005. Shortly after, Esch was rumored to be the replacement lead singer of industrial group Rammstein, but this turned out to be a hoax. In 2007, he began collaborating with fellow German musician Mona Mur, under the name Mona Mur & En Esch. The two released the album 120 Tage - The Fine Art Of Beauty & Violence in February 2009, and are currently performing together in support of the release.

He currently resides in Berlin. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
