Since the release of her debut album in 2000, Peaches has spread her
seed on the pop culture landscape, harnessing a worldwide audience and,
along with the countless followers she’s inspired, has shaped the
mainstream into a more inclusive and sexually progressive surrounding.
Over the years, she’s built a reputation on her suggestive and
intelligent lyrics, her amalgamation of rock and electro sounds and her
balls-out performances, continuing to outdo herself with each brash
“Fuck the Pain Away”, the lead song from The Teaches of Peaches, was her
first breakthrough statement amidst a multifaceted career: Never
officially released as a single (and before the era of blogs) it still
sucked in listeners from the indie, fashion and queer circles, and even
managed to worm its way into the ears of frat boys and soccer moms
(thanks to its subsequent inclusion in a number of films and television
shows). Some fans are surprised to learn the track was recorded live on
stage the first time she ever performed the song in her hometown of
Toronto, before she made Berlin her home, back when the minimalism of
her stage setup (a mic and a beatbox) was cutting edge, and it remains a
testament to her DIY ethos.
