Peach of Immortality

Hardcore punk songs and gogo-music dominated the setlists of this band from Washington. Confusing highlight was the album Talking Heads! - confusing because to our knowledge there is nor was any relationship between Peach of Immortality and the famous band of David Byrne, The Talking Heads.

Why band name Peach Of Immortality - Vincent__van_Gogh - Flowering peach treesIn Chinese tradition and culture the peach plays an important role: in particular Zhang Guo, one of the eight so-called 'Immortals', is associated with the peach and especially with eating it. Zhang is believed to be the true founder of Taoism.

The Chinese reverence for peaches seems to be due to the fact that peach trees are in bloom before they are in leaf. Mysterious, indeed.

Active: 1984-?, USA
