Mesh-29 were an English indie rock band from Whittlesey, Peterborough, United Kingdom.[1] The band formed in 1999 and consisted of Adam Mezzatesta on lead vocals and guitar and Anthony Shiels on the piano.

Mesh-29 entered the UK top 40 chart with their single Over The Barricade, reaching number 35 in the singles chart on 8 July 2007; only the second unsigned band in history of the UK charts to achieve such a result.[2][3]

The band played their last ever gig on October 9, 2010.



On 2 July 2007, Mesh-29 released their single Over The Barricade, which reached number 35 in the UK singles chart. The band supported Scouting for Girls and Air Traffic amongst others. On 30 August 2007, they were interviewed (and played three live tracks) on the Janice Long show on BBC Radio 2.

The album closer, Alone, was used on the soundtrack to the MTV series The Hills.[4]

Their second album Secret Traffic was released in the UK in October 2008 after their promotion single White Light was released on 13 October.

During the 'Secret Traffic' tour, Adam and Anthony have been joined on stage by 'The Secret Traffic Band' consisting of Scott McEwan on bass and John Wright [1] on drums.

The Present

Anthony Shiels continues to write and perform with his new band, The Candle Thieves. Adam Mezzatesta has since set up music agency, Bands For Hire [2], and continues to perform at private events.
