A Celebration of The Teaches of Peaches

Celebrating an era defining album by iconic feminist musician, producer, director, and performance artist, Peaches

In September 2000, Peaches released her album The Teaches of Peaches – an era-defining collection of electro-clash that was funny, sexy and outrageous, blurring genres and boundaries. The album smashed onto stereos with dirty Roland 505 beats, throbbing bass and trashy punk rock guitars, and Peaches singing and rapping pro sex, post-feminist themes that were queer, brash and so so danceable. Featuring bangers like Fuck The Pain Away - an anthem that resonates even more after the party-less year that was 2020 - plus AA XXX, Cum Undone, Rock Show and Diddle My Skiddle.

For this special Midsumma Festival event, local Melbourne artists V, Hearts and Rockets, Double Vanity, Zig Zag, Hunny Machete and more will get together at The Curtin to celebrate the iconic album, The Teaches of Peaches. Each band will perform a set of their own songs plus songs from The Teaches of Peaches, interpreted however they want, in celebration of and homage to this lusty, high art, low brow masterpiece. Special guest DJ Estée Louder will be spinning tunes between bands.

"surreally funny and nasty."
