KMFDM

I was thinking about fluffy white clouds.

CrocShop

Why so little of En Esch on Xtort???

KMFDM

That's a question to be directed to En Esch -- it's his choice to do so little or so much....

AirZomFhtMid

What kind of music do ya'll do? I have no kind of clue of who ya are????

KMFDM

Well... check us out!

AirZomFhtMid

Who would ya'll like to most work with??

KMFDM

Umm at this point I have worked with everyone that I wanted to work with. At this point things will just pop up.

AirZomFhtMid

Where are ya'll from?

KMFDM

I am originally from Hamburg, Germany. (Sacha)

AirZomFhtMid

What does KMFDM means?

KMFDM

Look at our WWW page: www.wolfenet.com/~kmfdm

david yow

Are you guys going on tour soon? If so, will you be in NJ, or NY soon?

KMFDM

Yes, in the spring.

demongoddess

Does your name mean no mercy for the masses, or no pity for the

majority?

KMFDM

BOTH!

Supernaut x

What do you think is your best album you have put out through your long years in the industrial music?

KMFDM

XTORT...is by far our best.

voidvoidvoid

I know kmfdm is German for no pity for the majority, but you've also said that you

don't mind it when people say kill mother f**king

Depeche Mode since you hate DM. Do you hate DM just because

their music sucks, or because of personal hatred?

KMFDM

I do not hate DM -- for the five letters just use your imagination.

A waste

What possessed you to speak on an online service?

KMFDM

Ummm, you guys asked me so here I am reluctantly. What

possesses you to join?

voidvoidvoid

Will you ever do another song with Thrill Kill Kult or any other industrial band?

KMFDM

I never say never except for maybe selling out -- KMFDM never sells out.

Supernaut x

What are your favorite musical bands in today's music choices and what is your favorite music style?

KMFDM

I don't really use labels to describe styles. Drill is pretty cool.

A waste

I feel that KMFDM has lost its edge that it once had. The music has become stagnant, evidence from the new album. What can be expected from KMFDM that will challenge the listener?

KMFDM

Please elaborate on that statement, I do not think that the statement is very pseudo factual.

A waste

Is it true En has left the group?

KMFDM

It's not true.

voidvoidvoid

Will you ever do another re-union with pig?

KMFDM

I never said never.

xKarmadrome

Hey KMFDM, you Guys are great I've seen you 3 times...1. at angstfest w/ SMG and Chemlab

(the Best show I've ever been to in my life) 2. with Dink. 3. w/ GLU And Genitortures. Who are you touring with when you go on tour in early 1997?????

KMFDM

It's a surprise.

voidvoidvoid

What does das schutzenfest mean?

KMFDM

It means the shooting contest.

zMightyMouse

When are you guys going to be playing in Chicago again... and can I have free tickets???

KMFDM

Sure, whatever.

A waste

Who am I speaking with from KMFDM?

KMFDM

Sacha.

STRNGELUV

Your music isn't just for the industrial heads anymore, I was curious to know how you felt about your latter albums being geared toward the alternative mainstream?

KMFDM

They aren't being geared by anyone, they just find their own way.

smawg

Was there any meaning to your song a drug against war from the album angst?

KMFDM

Of course.

xKarmadrome

If I may make a suggestion... I think good touring companions for you would be

Cubanate and Terminal Sect. I stress TERMINAL SECT.

KMFDM

Thanks, it already crossed my mind.

Supernaut x

How old would you say each of the members would range from?

KMFDM

Between 18 and 44.

STRNGELUV

How would you say you have changed (other than through line-up) musically, since your last album?

KMFDM

Would I say that? It's not a question that I can answer. You are your best interpreter.

demongoddess

Were you influenced by any certain bands?

KMFDM

No.

MeltInsideMe

Do you view your music as progressing?

KMFDM

Of course.

CrocShop

Who do ya think is gonna be the next big industrial band???

KMFDM

Industrial has been dead for 15 years!

STRNGELUV

What do you feel is your strongest qualities on Xtort, the qualities that will keep your fans loyal?

KMFDM

Continuity and uncompromising...

VxDr StaticV

Is Pig still in existence, or is he just part of KMFDM now?

KMFDM

He is not part of KMFDM, and he is doing his own projects as Pig.

Supernaut x

Sacha....what would influenced you to start kmfdm...like a band or a dream or whatever?

KMFDM

It was actually lack of influence -- it was about music that we thought we could like!

xKarmadrome

A lot of people say with the release of Nihil you guys sold out to the Heavy

Metal fans. I don't agree, but what do you say to these people?

KMFDM

Selling out means compromising music, we never compromise music. I don't really care what people think!

xKarmadrome

Will you guys ever tour with Jared and the guys from Chemlab again??

KMFDM

Probably not.

CrocShop

What do ya think of RMI?? I know ya post there but...well what Do ya think????

KMFDM

It's just a bunch of losers.

GINGER

You guys did a show(s) with poet Nicole Blackman. What other poets, if any, are you into?

KMFDM

I don't know anything about poets....Nicole isn't a poet she is like a

radical bitch.

zMightyMouse

What were you thinking about when you came up with the song Son of A Gun?

KMFDM

I was thinking about fluffy white clouds.

Antius

I've run out of things to ask, so I'll use questions from teen

magazines: Who is your ideal girl? What's your favorite color? If you could be any animal, which one would you be?

KMFDM

My wife, black and I would be a tick or leech.

VxDr StaticV

How much did you do in Excessive Force?

KMFDM

Everything!

xKarmadrome

How can I get my hands on a copy of the original Naive?!?!?!?!?

KMFDM

You can't.

GINGER

What was your most memorable experience from this last tour?

KMFDM

Getting stitched-up in a hospital.

MeltInsideMe

What kind of underwear do you wear, if any?

KMFDM

Boxer shorts with Santa Clause on them.

MeltInsideMe

How much money have you made?

KMFDM

Not a lot.

STRNGELUV

Ok, so the albums find there own way to the mainstream, in what ways has this effected you both personally and as a band (i.e., do you still feel the same vibe at concerts)?

KMFDM

Absolutely and it hasn't effected us at all.

demongoddess

I'm 14, does it bother you that some of your fans are younger than you expect?

KMFDM

It's not that I don't expect that.

Mr. Mehreit

Are you currently working on another album?

KMFDM

Yeah, but its not a KMFDM album.

Supernaut x

Did you grow up with some of the band members or go to school or what?

KMFDM

Fortunately I didn't have to see them before I was 20 -- met them in an asylum.

convulsion

Is it true that En Esch once fell off of a building and has metal plates in his face?????

KMFDM

Not in his face, in his arm. But it is true.

STRNGELUV

Your answers seem sort of abrupt, and unfeeling, almost as if this is a

waste of your time -- so is this a waste of time or are those simply your feelings?

KMFDM

It is simply my feelings -- I actually enjoy doing this.

GINGER

How did you feel about having a song (forgot which one) on 90210? Did anyone give you shit over this?

KMFDM

It was my choice. The only thing I got for it was money.

VxDr StaticV

What was your favorite collaboration?

KMFDM

It's really hard to say. Always working with Raymond and Chris Connolly is fun.

SKlFF

Which of your works are you the proudest of?

KMFDM

Xtort.

Mr Mehreit

Who has helped you guys the most, in terms of getting noticed?

KMFDM

We never actually aimed for getting noticed.

VxDr StaticV

If there was one thing you could do over, what would it be?

KMFDM

I would never start smoking.

MeltInsideMe

When you go to clubs or places do you enjoy hearing your own music and if so do you dance to it?

KMFDM

No and I don't dance. I rarely go to clubs.

SKlFF

What other bands really drive you (hard as opposed to drive you nuts)????

KMFDM

That's hard to say, I like a lot of musical styles and times. It's an answer that I can't give.

wet harlot

How do guys you feel about censorship and MTV's exploitation of music?

KMFDM

I am not apart of it. I do not make myself vulnerable to either. There are better ways to express your self than use swear words for shock value. Just to mess with the PMRC.

STRNGELUV

I have read that you are workaholic come recording time, I was curious to know if that happens to make up for the fact that after the album, the members aren't committed to KMFDM?

KMFDM

I am a workaholic- no one is committed to KMFDM but me. I do all promotion, publishing. No one else is inclined but me.

wet harlot

Do you plan on staying together much longer bandwise?

KMFDM

Never know really. When I get bored I will stop.

wet harlot

Any new wax trax compilations coming up, with you guys on it?

KMFDM

Not that I know of.

KMFDM poseur

Are those chicks that help sing Juke-Joint Jezebel in your band,

KMFDM?

KMFDM

Sometimes, it's just one chic actually...it's not really a band, it's a loose formation of revolving members.

xBLooDLusTx

Just curious.... But what were you main instruments used on Xtort as far as synths and samplers go?

KMFDM

Samplers- Akai 3000xl emax2 , any all kind of vintage for keyboards- refer to liner or sleeve notes.

taco chico

What do you think accounts for the sudden onslaught of guitars in

industrial music -- you, Front Line Assembly, even Skinny Puppy, the list goes on...

KMFDM

We were the first ones...(everyone else copy catted).

STRNGELUV

When not on tour or recording, What do you do for fun?

KMFDM

I sleep and eat good meals (home cooked) for a change, I watch a lot of movies.

taco chico

Is En Esch as freaky in person as he comes across on stage?

KMFDM

Absolutely- even freakier.

KMFDM poseur

Do you guys like Nine Inch Nails or do you think they're wussy's?

KMFDM

I like them.

A waste

Why do you incorporate your name into your songs?

KMFDM

So you know who it is when it's dark in the club and you can't see the DJ.

Rhys Leeb

Sacha.....Can your answers get any more vague than they already are???

KMFDM

They could- yeah.

wet harlot

Do you advocate drug abuse?

KMFDM

Absolutely not - freedom of choice yes - for people to do to themselves what they think seems reasonable.. I have lost a lot of friends to drug abuse.

KMFDM poseur

I wanted to know who the chick is on the cover of Nihil..... ?

KMFDM

It's my little sister- just kidding.

Brokensouls

Can I join your band? I speak very good German.

KMFDM

Sure!

Antius

Any bands you'd recommend to people in here that might not have been exposed to different kinds of music, other than what MTV plays?

KMFDM

Dia Tribe, Drill, Ashra Temple

Brokensouls

How was it working with White Zombie on the remixes you did for them?

KMFDM

Didn't work with them. It was just hard to work with the material - worked for the record company.

convulsion

Are you going to make any video's off of Xtort?

KMFDM

Yes the video for SON OF A GUN - fully animated by brute. It's almost done.

KMFDM poseur

Now that you've made it to Prodigy, the "big time" do you feel you're

computer nerds?

KMFDM

No! I am not a computer nerd.

zMightyMouse

Do you have any accounts on any online services?

KMFDM

No, just my internet account.

Rhys Leeb

Do you like Skinny Puppy and or Frontline Assembly??

KMFDM

Can't really say that!

wet harlot

What do you think about politics in the U.S.?

KMFDM

Too big of a question to even start answering- basically just as screwed as everywhere else in the world, and not as worse as in Germany!

Supernaut x

Have you ever heard of coc (Corrosion of conformity) and if so..what is your impression of the band?

KMFDM

Haven't heard of them.

Thrakarzog

Will you be on anymore soundtracks soon?

KMFDM

Nothing is planned at this point.

A waste

Who do you think is sexy besides your wife?

KMFDM

Dennis Rodman.

Antius

I just wanted to tell you I think it's great that you admit that $$$ is

good and you're letting your songs be everywhere. More power to ya and I hope ya make millions.

KMFDM

If I make millions I would start foster homes, and maybe hospitals for terminally ill patients for people with HIV.

Rhys Leeb

When will your Greatest hits album "Retro" Hit the Stores??

KMFDM

It's not going to be released commercially -- Every KMFDM album is a greatest hits album!
