ALBUM KITTY-YO, PLAYGROUND RELEASE:
SEPTEMBER 15, 2003 REVIEW: OCTOBER 14, 2003
like you Peaches. You’re a fresh and much needed reminder of the
fact that women don’t have to be victims and instead can take command,
well actually kick the ass of any man around.
like the fact that you haven’t made a sell-out record after the
commercial success with "The Teaches of Peaches".
like the fact that you are uncompromising, relentless and totally cool.
I don’t like is that you don’t wait until you have enough
good songs for a record. For every good two songs on "Fatherfucker"
there’s one filler that should have been left out. I mean, it’s
cool that you use heavy guitar-licks in some songs, but "Rock’n’roll"
and "I Don’t Give a…" aren’t actually very
exciting. Neither is the duet "Kick It", with Iggy Pop - although
it contains some funny references to Iggy’s past ("I used to
come much more to your right when you concentrate on the more minimalistic
side of your punky take of electroclash. "I’m the Kinda",
"Tombstone, Baby", "Operate", "The Inch"
and "Bag It" are all good examples of songs that will make me
dance and get an urge to do adult things. Then I totally understand why
you are a favourite for stars as Marilyn Manson and Michael Stipe, among
others. "Rock’n’roll" and "I Don’t Give
a…" just makes me understand that you would like to be Joan
Jett - and believe me, one is more than enough!
Peaches, you know I like you, here’s the deal: If you just could
think through your records and ease it a little on those boring guitars,
life would really be Peaches - and X-rated too…
