Album review: Peaches

Yay, Peaches is back. Time for another dose of fatherfucking, gender-bending fuck-the-Daily-Mail-away fun. Turn it up, let’s see what the latest perversion purveyed might be: “Tossing and turning, your insides are burning…” Sounds good, so...

Live Review: Peaches

Live Review: Peaches

hope you’re having fun,” intones the pink chiffon ostrich in the glittery gimp mask. “Because we’re going to kill you. Murder you slowly.” Not an extract from NME’s dream journal, but the former Merrill Nisker’s opening words to...

Peaches: Impeach My Bush

Peaches: Impeach My Bush

So, album of the year for that title alone; but just how relevant or revolutionary is Peaches in 2006? Aren’t we all relaxed about sex and sexual politics these days? Well, maybe people are in places as gleefully filthy as Peaches’ adopted...

Peaches  : Set It Off

Peaches : Set It Off

Peaches was sassy and sexy for about eight seconds until we worked out that she was from Canada, but in place of any spurious image we might have had of her as some kind of hip-hop dominatrix, here we have the new, major-label approved, daggery,...

Siren Festival : New York Coney Island

Siren Festival : New York Coney Island

You expect to smell strange things when you get off the New York subway, just not salt water. But there it is. And it's a breath of, well, maybe not fresh air, but it has a definite air about it. It's the smell of Coney Island, about as far...
