As the legendary Canadian electropunk pioneer heads to Liverpool, Getintothis‘ David Hall looks forward to a gig certain to defy any expectations.
In a career spanning over a quarter of a century, Peaches has proved time and again that she won’t be pinned down into categories, be those gender norms, music genres or the ability to predict what she will do next.
After years of performance art, Toronto’s Merrill Nisker moved to Berlin and settled on the Peaches moniker, moving to a loosely electroclash-based sound. Wider recognition and tours supporting Queens of the Stone Age and Marilyn Manson followed, with 2015’s Rub teaming Peaches up with Feist, Vice Cooler and Sonic Youth‘s Kim Gordon on her latest album.
Anything could happen at Peaches‘ notoriously explosive live dates, but you can expect to shed your inhibitions in the face of her sexually explicit lyrics and charged on-stage persona.
Peaches will play Invisible Wind Factory on Friday, November 11, doors 7pm, tickets go on sale from 9am Friday July 1.
