Biography

Bristol, England, UK (1991 – present)

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Mesh are a synthpop/ebm group, hailing from Bristol, England, UK consisting of Mark Hockings and Richard Silverthorn. Neil Taylor was in Mesh from their conception in 1991 until 2005. Their music is described by their official website as “somewhere between synthpop and EBM”. Personally they prefer the term ‘Electro rock’.

Mesh were discovered largely as a result of Future Music releasing their first three demo songs on a compilation. Holding a large amount of distaste for major label business, the trio chose to form their own label titled Tolerance Records, which released their first EP “Fragile” in 1993. Soon after circulation, the band signed to Memento Materia and re-released the EP. Mesh followed “Fragile” with the album “In This Place Forever”, which included the popular single “You Didn’t Want Me.”

1999 saw the release of “The Point At Which It Falls Apart”, which the official bio cites as “certainly the best work that the band had produced to date. It is a rich and emotional album, and shows the threesome taking their music to a new level.”

In 2000, Mesh signed distribution agreements with Metropolis Records in order to pursue US appeal, an arrangement which ultimately fizzled out. In 2002 the band switched labels yet again to release “Who Watches Over Me?” on Columbia (a Sony subsidiary).
