Peaches Geldof - she's back!

Discordant lounge jazz in Brooklyn thrift stores

Security for virtualized datacentres

Peaches Geldof has returned to the virtual pages of Nylon, having copped a savage shoeing for her first dip* into hackery.

Apparently none the worse for wear for the righteous critical beating administered by outraged Nylon readers, Peaches now offers insights into what's hot in the world of music, including The Junkman Band, whose demo she first heard "in a thrift store in Brooklyn", naturally.

The band's singer apparently "channels James Chance and Iggy Pop through a variety of discordant lounge jazz", so that's definitely one to watch our for in 2009, pop-pickers.

But there's more - much more. Having given us the musical low-down, Ms Geldof then launches her analysis of the current state of hip fashion with this intro:

Most people who know me know I don’t follow fashion. I mean, I just dyed the tips of my hair blue for God’s sake. I hate stars who look totally overstyled, like Victoria Beckham; give me Courtney Love, with her babydoll nighties and ripped fishnet tights, any day. For me, fashion is about pushing boundaries. Vivienne Westwood once told me that people who aren’t creative or have no love for art don’t dress up, I asked her why people should and she replied simply, “Because it’s fun.” Sage advice. Here are some trends I’m looking forward to in the coming year.

And the trends are? Trust us - you don't want to know.

Unsurprisingly, Nylon commentards are back out in force to decry Peaches' latest peach of a piece, although her chum "Courtney" was moved to defend: "I think that Peaches is a good writer. I also like her fashion sense, and just because someone has good fashion sense doesn't mean they follow fashion. So shut up. Her writing is fine, and completely worthy of being in this magazine, because Peaches is amazing and so is NYLON." ®
