Storming sex-obsessed electro-garage
A survivor of the Great Electroclash Fiasco of 2002, Merrill “Peaches” Nisker’s second album is a triumph of style and content. Performance artist, potty-mouthed rapper and sexual assertiveness lecturer, Peaches also makes pretty useful music these days. Fatherfucker pillages Missy Elliott, Suicide and “Justify My Love”-era Madonna, and even outfoxes the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (notably “Kick It”, a duet with Iggy Pop). All her talk of dicks and tits, meanwhile, is funny rather than provocative.
