Biography

There were at least 7 acts that used the name Peach:

1. Peach- St. Louis, MO On The Web: http://peachlikethefruit.com/
Peach began Far From The Tree as three touring musicians stranded on Interstate 37, surrounded by the sounds of speeding cars and acoustic guitar. They passed the hours documenting their desolation on digital tape, writing and debuting the song “T-Minus” for an audience of no one. And as the night crept in, the assurances of smiles and applause faded into memory. The group, left entirely to their own devices, made a decision. Starting then, they would forget the music they had come to know, and instead, they would set out to create an album with the same tension they found on the road that day.

Peach brands themselves “Post-Trash”—which only hints at their sound. Not unlike a group of scientists conducting a meandering musical experiment, Peach plays with the minimalism of drone, the basic elements of melodic pop, and the dissonant tones of modern rock, all to create a canvas for Melissa Roberts’ vocal stroking. Atop a background of fuzz always shifting in intensity, Roberts sings about life as an introvert, a woman, and a human being desperate to tear down the walls that separate us from reality and one another.

On Far From The Tree, the band’s struggle and triumph comes to life for the first time, but certainly not the last.

2. Peach (also known as Peach [gb]):
A band from England that originally recorded between 1991 and 1994. They played with influences from , , and . The original line-up consisted of Simon Oakes, Rob Havis, Ben Durling and Justin Chancellor. Peach supported the band Tool on the European leg of their tours throughout 1993-1994 after the release of Undertow, and then released an album, Giving Birth to a Stone, themselves. After touring to promote their debut album, Peach recorded a second one, Volume II. It was never released due to a failure to secure a major record deal. In 1995 Oakes quit to form Geyser, but Peach attempted to continue with replacement singer Rod Sterling. However, they suffered more misfortune when Rob Havis left for fellow Tool support act Submarine (later to become JetBoy DC). The name Peach was then dropped in favour of Sterling. Despite also losing Justin Chancellor to Tool in 1996 after their (Tool’s) first bassist, Paul D’Amour, left, Sterling signed a deal with Mantra Records and released an album (Monster Lingo) and had four singles.

In 2000, Giving Birth to a Stone was reissued to unexpected relative success. Realising that their music was in fact appreciated, Simon Oakes and Rob Havis decided to form a band again, but since Justin and Ben were no longer there, they chose to pick a new name instead of using Peach. The name they chose was Suns of the Tundra, and they still play several old Peach songs in their live set.

3. Peach Union:
The members of the trio were producer and remixer Pascal Gabriel (formerly a member of S’Express and Bomb the Bass), songwriter Paul Statham (ex-Peter Murphy’s band), and vocalist Lisa Lamb. They released a first single as Neuronic in 1996, then changed their name to Peach for their album Audiopeach in 1997. The album contained the international hit single On My Own. The trio used the name Peach Union in the US due to the name conflict. The group broke up in 1998.
