MESH/ Depeche Mode/MESH???

Jeez, could MESH sound anymore like Depeche Mode?

I've never listened to MESH before this morning when their "We Collide" CD landed on my doormat. I'm not sure what their earlier material is like (although I'll probably dive in and have a listen at somepoint) but they certainly seem very influenced by DM.

I'm also surprised at discovering yet another EBM band which is very light and poppy. I think I just imagine more EBM bands should be harder or more techno-y. Probably because of my background growing up with the Industrial movement of the late 80's and early 90's...

All of Mesh's stuff is very DM, not just the recent album. Or like DM *should* be but aren't any more. I think they're great. :-)

One of my co-workers here actually thought it was a new DM CD until I told him otherwise :p

I've certainly enjoyed it on the first spin so will probably throw it on again later and will almost certainly end up buying some of their other CDs. Any recomendations?

They're all good!

My favourite is probably In This Place Forever. Closely followed by The Point At Which It Falls Apart.

Your a friend of a friend...
But I thought I'd let you know... Mesh, according to rumor, used to be a Depeche Mode cover band....

umm.. there's a REALLY good reason for that... they started out as a DM tribute band!

I second the vote for 'The Point at Which it Falls Apart', which is thoroughly fab.

We used to call them 'Depeche Mesh'. And they were a very welcome discovery during DM's godawful 'Exciter' period.

The Mesh gig experience also comes highly recommended, although I should mention that they look more like an (ageing) boyband than they do goths, which can be a little diconcerting, intially. My regular favourite bit is hearing a couple of hundred goths singing in perfect unison to 'People Like Me (With This Gun)'. All together now: 'I'll never be/ alone again/I'll really make you see me differently'...
