Thu, 15 Jul 2010 16:09:05
Potty-mouthed, electronic music queen Peaches has released the short film for her song "Show Stopper" today via the brand new You Tube channel, Peaches TV. "Show Stopper" is the 11th, and second to last video clip from her critically acclaimed 2009 album I Feel Cream. Peaches is nada if not prolific with her videos. I mean, who else has 11 clips? A film has been produced for every song featured on the album. "Show Stopper" was directed by Caroline Sascha Cogez, and stars Danish film actress Charlotte Munck. Part short film, part vibrant live document, the oftentimes humorous, NSFW clip, depicts a day in the life of a masseuse being thrust into Peaches' surreal existence on the road. Today, fans will be able to take part in a "re-tweet" contest under the hash tag #PeachesShowStopper. Winners will receive limited edition gold necklaces whose charm is a mold of Peaches' own teeth. More information about the contest can be found here. So if you like a sassy, visually dominant gal like Peaches, get watching and get Tweeting.
In a statement, Peaches said,"It all played out very spontaneously. I loved putting the real gig and interviews together with acting and in the end, it never actually felt like acting. It really blurred the lines between private and public. We are hoping to continue somehow and make a feature film like this. I really revel in the film's uncomfortable moments."
Peaches has received critical acclaim for her recent one-woman performances of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Jesus Christ Superstar in Berlin and Hamburg. It was re-named Peaches Christ Superstar. The American debut of PCS is currently in the works. So bring it, girl!
Peaches is also featured in her own episode for The Creators Project, a new partnership between Vice and Intel. The Creators Project is a new network dedicated to the celebration of creativity and culture across media, and around the world. Featuring an interview at her rehearsal space in Berlin, live performance and historical footage, Peaches' episode can be viewed online here.
Peaches also maintains an extremely successful blog that keeps her constantly connected with her fan community. It can be found Peache's official blog, and the site's goal of consistently providing exclusive content for her fans is now branching out with the debut of Peaches TV on YouTube.
