  • Summary: Fresh off the electroclash touring circuit (and apparently in need of a good shave), ever-vulgar Canadian Merrill Nisker (aka Peaches) follows her 2000 debut 'The Teaches of Peaches' with 12 new tracks, including a duet with Iggy Pop.

    Peaches hasn't suffered from the sophomore slump one bit. [#23, p.96]
  2. Now grafting meaty guitars and ferocious singing onto her minimal electronic beats, she summons the very spirit of rock & roll. [26 Sep 2003, p.95]
  3. 80
    A combination of fierce electro-clash, stabbing rock riffs, and the rudest raps on the planet. [Oct 2003, p.118]
  4. 75
    Peaches seems to be having much more fun with her sleazy subject matter. [Nov 2003, p.116]
  5. The album largely treads the same brazen minimal-electro territory; and most of the dick/tits/cunt-centric songs will be familiar for anyone who's seen Peaches' girlie-show shows in full-frontal effect over the past couple years.
  6. Peaches seems to intentionally drop the ball throughout Fatherfucker.
  7. The beats on Fatherfucker are not only frustratingly simplistic, but the energy and surprising rhythmic complexity of the vocals on her debut are noticeably absent, too.
