Amy Taylor (Amyl and the Sniffers) Sings ‘Fuck the Pain Away’ with Peaches Live in Melbourne

Peaches rounded off her Teaches of Peaches Australian tour with a raucous show at Melbourne’s Northcote Theatre on Wednesday, 8th March. The Canadian electroclash artist invited Amyl and The Sniffers frontwoman Amy Taylor on stage to perform her signature song ‘Fuck The Pain Away’. You can catch footage of the moment below.

Taylor and her Amyl and the Sniffers bandmates have long been fans of Peaches – they shared a cover of ‘Fuck The Pain Away’ in March 2020 as COVID lockdowns descended on the country. Taylor re-shared the cover to her Instagram story after the Peaches show, adding, “My dreamy creamys came true tonight”.
