“Why do we call our mothers motherfuckers? Why do we stub our toe and say ‘Aww motherfucker!’? What is a motherfucker? We use it in our everyday language and it’s such an insanely intense word. Motherfucker is very mainstream. But if we’re going to use motherfucker, why don’t we use fatherfucker? I’m just trying to be even.”
Merrill “Peaches” Nisker, is a well known electroclash artist born in Toronto who now works and lives in Berlin. Her intense and shocking music hit the main club scene with her track “Fuck the Pain Away.” Always focused on sexuality and gender identity, Peaches is confident in her obscene language and vulgar imagery constantly blurring the line between male and female. She creates her own songs by playing all the instruments and creating her own electronic beats. Her music has been featured in movies like Mean Girls, My Little Eye, Lost in Translation, Waiting and Jackass: Number Two. Her songs can also be heard in Showtime’s The L Word. Her music has been studied as part of the Queer Studies course curriculum at the University of Toronto and has been invited to lecture at the Contemporary Music Academy in Berlin.
