What else is in the teaches of Peaches.
Knowing where to look for information isn’t always as easy as it seems. Just recently, the new book store Topics opened at Weserstr. 166 – right next to lovely Suzy and her deli Stella. The wonderfully minimalistic shop is run by the very likeable Israeli Doron Hamburger (cool name!) and the books aren’t kept in alphabetical order, instead they are arranged on cubes according to their topics (Aha!). The „night“ cube for instance features a capricorn of literary highlights, stories about growing up without a father, time machines or books written in prison and what not… You name it! The atmosphere is so genuinely chic yet down-to-earth you’ll want to spend all day sticking your nose in every book. When we first stepped inside, we weren’t sure if we really were in a book shop or had entered a concept store for modular furniture systems. Tomorrow evening, a real Berlin legend invites you to join her in this fabulous new place for her new book release. The book is called „What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches“ and needs no further explanation really. No other than the cult music heroine Peaches herself and photographer Holger Talinski have created an outrageous photographic volume including countless pictures capturing the artist live on stage and accompanying texts by various pioneers such as Michael Stipe, Ellen Page and even Yoko Ono. The event will begin at 5 p.m. with a Q&A between Peaches and Holger after which they’ll be signing the new book. There’ll be food from Stella next door (no surprise here) and all the bars in the neighbourhood are prepared for the roof to burn down. So Neukölln, get yourself ready and put on the ritz! Or to put it in Michael Stipe’s words: „This is balls like we haven’t seen since Patti Smith; she is Die Antwoord, Kim Gordon, NWA. She stands tall and she is fearless. That is my definition of a hero, heroine, progressive, icon— locked in, and ready to rumble.“
