Who Is Peaches Lennox?
This is the story of Peaches Lennox, and “her rise to punk rock fame.” Both an artist and performer she rose from a bleak beginning in the backwaters of Oklahoma and emerged a star that dazzled audiences for decades as Tulsa’s premiere Shock Queen.
In the early 70’s Ken Youngblood, Peaches’ not so secret identity, appeared on Oklahoma’s OETA a local PBS affiliate performing his a rock opera [NAME]that he wrote and produced. Ken knew his place was in the limelight.
By the mid 80’s Peaches poked her head out in low budget “fun film” that she wrote and co-starred in. The Film Mondo Maido, made its round through several local grindhouses but failed to garner a cult following due to its complex storyline and lengthy performance numbers. Meanwhile, Ken was continuing the success of his rock-opera by littering the Tulsa scene with wonky new aged punked piano tunes with his band Retrospective.
