Provocateur Peaches gave us five minutes of her time recently. Here's what happened.

Katie Olsen: So, how are you? What’s happening with you at the moment?
Peaches: Right now I'm eating some awesome German bread.

KO: It’s always mentioned that you are a producer, DJ, singer, and provocateur – anything else you’d like to be recognised for?
P: Conceptual artist and great popcorn maker.

KO: Is there anything that you’d really like to learn?
P: There are so many things I want to learn, but I guess since I live in Germany, I should learn the German Language.

KO: You’ve said your work is half Kiss, half Kate Bush, and Kiss? Still the sticking with that description, or can you feel it evolving?
P: Actually, I said  KKK, Kiss, Kraftwerk and Kate Kush. I stand by that.

KO: You’ve said a few times that the mainstream just keeps getting closer to what you do, so you haven’t compromised your art and it’s organically becoming better known. You don’t seem like the kind of lady who would compromise, often or perhaps easily – have you ever?
P: Well, I never really had to compromise, so no.

KO: Your visuals are super important to your live shows – lighting, costumes, make-up, hair – can you tells us of any visual artists or particular artworks that inspire/influence you when you’re making music?
P: That's a good question. John Waters, Cindy Sherman, Paul MaCarthy and the movies Tron, Grease, Liquid Sky and Phantom of the Paradise.

KO: Some people are offended by stuff you do, what offends you? (If you weren’t allowed to say sexism, homophobia, racism, or Nickelback.)
P: I'm offended by the Jonas Brothers and High School Musical and Disney TV aesthetics.

KO: Australia loves you, and you’re coming back to play a DJ set over summer – what can we expect? Or is it best to expect the unexpected?
P: Exactly, its a chance to play hard dance music and see what happens...

KO: Will there be spandex involved?
P: Always!

Monday 18th Jan: Hifi, Brisbane
Sunday 24th Jan: Home the Venue, Sydney
