Peaches Gets Better!
on 28 March 2006
I already had Peaches' first album ('Teaches of Peaches') and was exited to get hold of Fatherfucker - however on the first couple of listens I was a little disappointed. BUT STOP!!! Don't let this album go in the pile marked 'Thanks but no thanks'.
Fatherfucker is a considerable improvement on her previous effort. It is more varied, exciting and interesting while still retaining her lo-fi style.
The musical standard is higher and there are some brilliant stand out tracks. Skip straight to 'The Inch', a stunning New Order-esque electro ode to... well just look at the title! 'Kick It' (featuring Iggy Pop) may be Peaches most poppy moment to date, (I'm forgetting that track with Pink) but is a raw slice of filthy rock that you'll soon find yourself singing along with.
Overall, Peaches has scored some serious credibility here, a big f*** you to all those who wrote her off as a crude novelty act. Yes, Peaches does seem to appeal more to the fairer sex, but boys - give it a try, you might just find yourself shaking your dix.
