Peaches

"But then, out came Peaches...and suddenly everything turned awesome. The Queen of Nasty rocked out to over twenty four tracks (!), armed with a wealth of tricks up her hairy sleeves for the night's events: Among them, climbing up into the balcony to scream out a slightly rockier rendition of my personal favorite, "Operate," a green laser beam shot into the disco ball hanging above for "More," hairy back-up dancers for "Talk To Me," six or seven costume changes between songs, and a self-proclaimed blinking "pussy light" for the final few numbers including "Fuck The Pain Away."" [MuuMuse]
Not only did two of electroclash's larger acts both re-emerge with new albums, big tours, and a bunch of NYC shows this month. They both employed topless opening acts that fall into the NSFW category. Fischerspooner had No Bra. Peaches, who did not have Drums of Death at the Webster Hall show because he got stuck at the airport, had The Naked Cowgirl doing an act before she played. More pictures from the show below...

Merrill Nisker, an annoying 43 year old trying way too hard to be relevant

^ Really, you do? Because she just sold out Webster Hall ten years after her biggest hit came out.

8 years, but who's counting.

I think that use of the word "methinks" means you don't get 15 minutes to begin with. You get like a fortnight or halfscallion or something like that....

drug and alcohol abuse can have disastrous effects on the human body, see? Your parents and teachers were right.

I only wish my grade school teachers were as cool as Peaches.

Since when are small town rubes flaming gay?

Speaking of Iggy, he once tried to get the late Ron Asheton to play guitar on a track featuring Peaches. "I said, 'Go on the internet, check her out, you'll love her!" Iggy said. "He left me a message: 'Jim, I looked at that Peaches. Bitch needs a shave.'"

"drug and alcohol abuse can have disastrous effects on the human body, see?" I dunno, Iggy looks pretty ripped for a 60-year-old.

Methinks you sound like another sneering, trust-funded Williamsburg hipster snothead.

"I only wish my grade school teachers were as cool as Peaches."

Nah, I'd rather have Dave Gahan as my teacher: I could buy my drugs from him, and he'd be out most of the time on sick leave.
