Philly punks Nothing are back from the brink with a new record that draws on some really, really bad times.
The Teaches Of Peaches
...it's time to partake of some of [B]Peaches[/B]' adult education.
Because, make no bones, 'The Teaches...' Peaches spits so seductively of mostly belong in the 'Reproductive Biology' portion of the curriculum. From the clit-pop avant-noise-disco of 'Diddle My Skittle' to Moroder-on-poppers of recent single 'Lovertits', Peaches dribbles one-handed fictions over brilliantly dispassionate Teutonic grooves, kinda like Will Powers' (of '80s novelty-hit 'Kissing With Confidence' fame) scoring the soundtrack to Deep Throat.
And it's ace, like you imagine Madonna would've sounded if the records had matched the raunch of her videos/concerts/multimedia-experiments. Peaches herself is a fearsomely liberated MC, an irresistible, righteous sex-symbol towering miles above the likes of Britney, Mandy and Christina (who're half her age). Your mum would probably object, but perhaps it's time to partake of some of Peaches' adult education.
