I love peaches in summertime. The vibrant colours of yellow, orange and red. The inviting touch of its supple texture underneath your fingertips, in between your teeth. The lip smacking crunch that threatens dribbles of juicy goodness out the corner of your mouth. The urge to moan orgasmically at the heavenly sweetness that touches your tastebuds. Yum.
But that’s not the Peaches I’m talking about here. So, before you think this gig is about crates and crates of imported fruits selling at dirt cheap prices, the Peaches I’m talking about here is Merill Beth Nisker, Canadian-born dance electro punk musician, who has been an icon when it comes to reinventing fashion and upping the level of individualism.
Peaches is well loved by notable acts like Iggy Pop, Bjork, Josh Homme, Lil’ Kim, Kelis, 2 Many DJs, M.I.A. and LCD Soundsystem, as well as being embraced in the fashionista world of Paris runways and Victoria Secret shows. Peaches have five studio albums out, latest being I Feel Cream released in May last year to acclaimed reviews. Since then, she has been around the world doing her deeds, and here she is now, making a pit stop in Singapore with all her juicy and sexual demeanours.
