Peaches Geldof on Vivienne Westwood

04 December 2008


Oooh, we've got our hands on a preview copy of the long awaited Disappear Here - the new magazine Peaches has edited (yes, you did read that right!) - and... we really rather like it. Okay, so there are a few slightly cringey parts (according to Peaches, Vivienne Westfield is ‘a strange creature, at once very aware of her own intrinsic eccentricity and power, but also wrapped up in a strange, self-created world, that at times makes talking to her feel like listening to an audio novel whispering in your ear'. Hmmm... does that beat her Nylon column in terms of GCSE English speak?), but on the whole it's a bit like stepping into Ms Geldof's head, or at least getting to spend a night in Bungalow 8 with her and her pals. The resulting mag is full of club kids being vox-popped about what sort of biscuit they'd be (chocolate's the cool flavour apparently), heads-up profiles of new bands which will give you bragging rights down the pub until 2010 - FYI: musicwise, it's all about Ulterior, Los Campesinos, Gil Mantera's Part Dream and Laura Marling (finally! Someone we've honestly heard of!) - and we're also loving the fact they've done interviews with Billy Childish, Chuck Palahniuk and Pete Doherty (in which he admits that the historical figure he'd most like to be is Lestor Piggot. Then DH have to explain to their readers who Lestor Piggot is). Roll on issue two...
