In 2000, Merrill Beth Nisker opened her debut album as Peaches with some mischievously vivid filth: "Sucking on my titties like you wanted me, calling me all the time like Blondie." Those are the first lines on The Teaches of Peaches' "Fuck the Pain Away," her trademark track, and still the best primer on Peaches' oversexed electro-rock. The ex-schoolteacher, Canada native, and Berlin resident — who performs as part of the San Francisco Bear Pride festivities this weekend — absolutely revels in kitsch and shtick. She's gaudy, she's funny, she's provocative, she loves her costume changes, she gives her records names like I Feel Cream and Fatherfucker. Her newest project is the film Peaches Does Herself, a self-avowed "anti-jukebox musical" that looks to be part performance footage, part gonzo narrative, and completely insane.
