Peaches Biography

Peaches (Merrill Nisker) burst into transcontinental favor with her very particular brand of cock-sure rapping and spurting groovebox beats. Indeed, this vulgar Canadian temptress may have come from an underground womb of acoustic folk (Mermaid Cafe), avant jazz (Fancypants Hoodlum), and deconstructed noise swarms (the sh**), but it wasn't until 2000's new guise that her fearless, apolitical gender-play truly raised heads. European trawls unearthed new admirers, and collaborations with the equally lewd Chilly Gonzales certainly fueled the fire for her first solo effort. By the time she signed onto Berlin's Kitty-Yo label and unleashed The Teaches of Peaches, her niche had already been carved out. Peaches simultaneously sounded like a Penthouse Forum and Grandmaster Flash, Shirley Manson, and Charles Manson -- or just Justine Frischmann hitting her s**ual peak. Peaches moved to XL, which reissued The Teaches of Peaches in 2002, and released Fatherf**er in 2003 and Impeach My Bush in 2006. ~ Dean Carlson, All Music Guide
