Mesh were founded in 1991. Richard Silverthorn used to be in a band with Neil Taylor. It was then that they met Mark Hockings on a concert. Mark was also a keyboardist but in a different band. During conversations, which were mainly about music, they got along together right away. Later, they decided to try a few new ideas in the studio because it was obvious for them that the bands they were in didn’t have a long life expectancy. The first song they recorded together was "Waste Of Time".
