Stark black and white images of German 1930’s movies are the atmospheric visions that OF A MESH create. “With OF A MESH we are looking into the dark side of our urban nightmares” states the band whose home and birthplace is New York City.
Okay, that text comes from the press release that came with the EP called ‘Broken’. The band is no longer around now. They existed in the mid to late 80’s. They sound like a dark Bauhaus band with punk influences. Great stuff! Hear their music on their MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/ofamesh

Show announcement for Of A Mesh, opening for March Violets at The Cat Club in NYC.
Very little info on this band exists. They never recorded enough for a regular 45 minute CD, so there is a rare chance that this music will be reissued as a discography. It could happen, maybe with some extra live tracks or unreleased material.
Worth finding their records, even though you’ll pay a LOT of dollars for it.
