Mesh (or Mesh GE, GE is for Geneva) is a swiss post punk band, which was active from around 1982 to 1991. Renown as a "no compromission" band, not that their music was more extreme or more violent, but for their temper on and off stage : for example, they literally sunk one of their gig, by playing their whole headlining set, after there was a technical problem, without synths. Just drumbox, bass and voice. One said that they also kick off a rockabilly band off the stage during a festival, to begin their set. Raw style ! In fact they never ever did anything to show a positive image of the band. The band splitted officially around 1990, due to pesonal dissentions, but there are some tapes remaining from the period 1990 - 1992, kept at the demo stage. Heard that they would be released end 2010 under Mesh GE (especially a song called "care" or "stare" wich makes us regret the band splitted). To be confirmed. This album, though is still available somewhere on the net in 2010.This album was written and played on a simple MG1214 by the singer/bass, and produced with drummer Stephane Vogel (from local band) on a studio.It seems that the album comes from two different sessions or periods. One is based on very tiny, light (but dark) and fast pop-new-wave songs (Time is gone, Forestfull of blades) and the others of much more heavy/doomy sound. It's creeping cold wave or post-punk music. Very unoptimistic and depressive music. Downward spiral all the time. Lyrics turn to monomania about falling and death (metaphorically as the kids seemed to be quite funny in real life). We feel influences by Joy div or Cure (like 99% of the bands of this decade) or even more, by heart, The Sound at it's lowest mood and much more noisy, crude and slow. But it's no joy div or Cure impersonation. It's just "funny as .."Two aces for Twisted Head and The She Said, the best "fast" songs. In the doom department, "This Time" and "I could say" will surely rot your nights.To turn it short : this album, even though production is (really) rotten, is far over most of the goth band / vampire bands that we have today in term of terror, anger, fear ... and mood.
