twitterBio PEAR dutchClick for a bigger size PEAR was founded in 1990 by singer songwriter Paul Stolp. Some songs were (demo) recorded and even in that stage (solo project) played on national radio. Quite heavy guitar songs with great vocal harmonies but when having the skin peeled off also suitable for acoustic sessions. Bassplayer Herman Bouman joined PEAR shortly after the project started. But a drummer and a second singer/guitarist were hard to find. Eventually in 1992 drummer Thom de Jager and Jacob Veenstra joined PEAR.

The band went playing live on short term and soon after that and in 1993 the debut CD Man Go! was released by Kelt Records in co-operation with orMusic. A few months later a Split 7" with the band Thud! with two songs was released.

PEAR played in a lot of clubs (Vera, Atak, Doornroosje, Nighttown, etc) and even did a tour in Russia (read the story for SPN (written by Thomas) here, in Dutch). After this tour PEAR contibuted with two songs on the Brest de Kelt CD. In 1994 the band split up and PEAR was a solo project again. Thom and Jacob joined The Serenes. In 1995 one PEAR song was released on the Beats and Bedrocks.
