Cheesy is a solo album by En Esch of KMFDM and Slick Idiot. It was released on August 31, 1993, on Wax Trax!/TVT.

History[edit]

Six tracks were recorded in Hamburg, Germany, with Günter Schulz and KMFDM's then-engineer Blank Fontana: "Cum", "Gypsy Queen", "Ich Bin", "Rule the Mob", "Granola", and "The Past Is Beyond Recovery".[1] These tracks would have comprised En Esch's half of the KMFDM album Apart.[citation needed] Wax Trax! Records rejected Esch's tracks for not sounding enough like KMFDM. Instead, Sascha Konietzko added additional songs and remixes to those he had recorded for Apart and changed the name of the album to Money. The rest of the tracks for what was initially called Cheesy Fun[2] were recorded later in various locations to fill out what then became Esch's solo album.

The track "Ich Bin" was sampled and used in the Pigface song "Alles Ist Mein" on the album Fook.
