A Wall Of Sound Retrospective – Part 2 – Mekon ‎– Phatty’s Lunchbox / Last Breath (Original 12″)

mekonic More from Wall Of Sound and this from John Gosling (a.k.a. Mekon) and his debut release from 1994. Gosling was also in Psychic TV, 23 Skidoo and Bass-o-matic.

Mixing sub bass, beats and guitars, this stomps along with heavy dub Jamaica influences. The guitar by Mark Rutherford is even more prominent on the second mix, almost dance metal!

Squelchy slide guitar by Mike Ashman (Ex Adam & The Ants, Bow Wow Wow and Chiefs of Relief- sadly R.I.P.) is a prominent feature on the swamp rock, stomp of “Last Breath.” The “Re-skank” brings in a more electro beat, very Meat Beat Manifesto.

  1. I’ve been hunting the Last Breath (Original Mix) version for some time now. Would it be possible for you to re-upload it at all?
    Many thanks in advance

      1. Whenever is easiest for you. Let me know if there’s anything you’re looking for as well, and I’ll see if I have it, or can turn it up from somewhere.

        Again, many thanks – only just found your blog, so will start at the most recent and work my way back.

  2. Wasn’t it Matthew Ashman?? Saw the Chiefs of Relief, they were brilliant and sadly never became big,
