Sonic Youth legend Kim Gordon is a mob boss-style coach to Peaches in the characteristically freaky video for the latter's new track, Close Up, which features an all-star line up of lucha libre and pro-wrestling performers. "I'm fascinated by Lucha VaVOOM, the work they do, and by classic bro movies like Rocky; the relationships between coach and student and between men and their sports," Peaches says in a statement. "For Close Up, I wanted to combine the two, adding some little twists," she adds.

From literally beating meat in a boxing gym to taking on an array of cheese dream / psychedelic nightmare pro-wrestling competitors, Peaches battles through round after round in the ring as Gordon curses from the sidelines in the Vice Cooler-directed film. What else is in the teaches of Peaches? An actual kiss is always better than a kiss with a fist.

It's not the first time Peaches has wound up for a fight alongside a music legend; in the 2003 video for Kick It, she squares up to and gyrates in front of a baying horde of zombies in partnership with Iggy Pop.

Peaches next album, Rub, is scheduled for release on September 25.
