Kim Gordon And Peaches Teach Us The Art Of Lucha VaVoom

It's a kind of burlesque wrestling and it's amazing.

Only good things can happen when Sonic Youth goddess Kim Gordon teams up with electropunk dissident Peaches.  

The two musical badasses star in a video for Peaches' new single, "Close Up," from her upcoming album, "Rub," set to release on Sept. 25. In the video, Gordon is some kind of guru/mentor helping Peaches (aka Merrill Beth Nisker) master the art of Lucha VaVoom. 

Lucha VaVoom, for the uninitiated, is a form of burlesque wrestling that combines the drama of lucha libre (a Spanish term for professional wrestling in Mexico and other countries) with the bawdy comedy and cabaret of burlesque performance. 

If you've ever dreamed of Gordon smoking a vape pen over your shoulder, her red lipstick mere inches from your face as she sing-urges you to get back into the metaphorical ring -- well, your strangely awesome dreams have come true. 

Stay tuned for our full interview with Peaches.
