“Peaches is ferocious, relentless, sexy, confident, and gives all of herself to her audience . . . She is a person who inspires.”
—Ellen Page, actress

“Peaches is an incredible artist . . . Thank you, Peaches, for adding a long and exciting life to performance art.”
—Yoko Ono

“Peaches stands tall and she is fearless. That is my definition of a hero, heroine, progressive, icon—locked in, and ready to rumble.”
—Michael Stipe of R.E.M.

This volume presents a mesmerizing collection of Holger Talinski’s evocative and sometimes erotic photos of transgressive musical icon Peaches, on and off stage, with accompanying text by Peaches, Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Yoko Ono, and the actress Ellen Page, best known for her lead role in the film Juno, which garnered her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

PEACHES, born Merrill Nisker in Toronto, is a musician, singer, performance artist, producer, filmmaker, actor, and writer, who has lived and worked in Berlin since 2000. She has released four albums—The Teaches of Peaches, Fatherfucker, Impeach My Bush, I Feel Cream—and a new album is forthcoming. She has collaborated and appeared as a guest vocalist on albums by P!nk, R.E.M., Iggy Pop, Major Lazer, and Christina Aguilera, to mention a few. Her songs have been featured in dozens of films and TV shows including Mean Girls, Lost in Translation, Whip It, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty, South Park, and True Blood. Peaches has performed in more than fifty countries and has constantly toured the world for the past fourteen years. She created Peaches Christ Superstar, where she performed the entire rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar as a one-woman show; and she sang the lead role of L’Orfeo in a production of Monteverdi’s seventeenth-century Italian opera. Peaches’s most ambitious work to date was the mythical autobiographical electrorock stage-show-turned-film called Peaches Does Herself. The feature film debuted at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and was warmly received at over seventy film festivals around the world. Peaches has just completed her first new album in over five years entitled RUB which will be released in 2015. She is the author of What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches.
