Mesh are a synthpop band from Bristol, England, formed in 1991.



In 1991, Mark Hockings (vocals, guitars, keyboards, programming, lyrics) and Richard Silverthorn (keyboards, programming) met at a gig where Silverthorn's band was playing. They were soon joined by Neil Taylor (keyboards, programming), a former band-mate of Silverthorn, and continued as Mesh with this line up until 2006.

On 13 September 2006, Taylor announced that he was leaving the band to pursue other interests, saying "15 years is a long time and for me the time has come to move on and I need to give some headspace to other things in life".[1] Hockings and Silverthorn have stated their desire to continue making music as Mesh. The band recruited keyboardist Geoff Pinckney (Toffeetones Records) to act as a replacement for Taylor during their live performances.

Mesh have created a number of remixes, including a remix of the Apoptygma Berzerk song, "Mourn", for that group's 2006 cover album, Sonic Diary.

On 8 January 2009, Side-Line magazine informed that the band were working hard in their studio in Bristol, writing and recording their new album describing the sound as 'Grittier and more Rockier than before'.[2]

On November 3 2009, saw the release of their tenth album "A Perfect Solution" which featured a more synth gritty rock sound rather than previous ones, it spawned 2 singles, first single "Only Better" (which a promotional video was made for) followed by second single "How Long".

2 years later the band released "An Alternative Solution" which contains all tracks remixes of their latest album by bands like zeromancer, Assemblage 23 among others.

On August 26 2011 the band announced via twitter that Geoff Pinckney "will no longer be playing live with mesh".
