Previously Cole was best known for his work with The Commotions but this album marked a departure from their signature sound and an opportunity for him to collaborate with other musicians and explore new ideas. Following the release of Mainstream, and limited touring and promotion in support of it, Cole left the Commotions. The chance to write and record new types of songs was the motivating factor.
The career of Lloyd Cole & The Commotions began with a fortuitous false start. Their first single, Down At The Mission, was pulled at the eleventh hour when the band signed to Polydor, and one can only assume they’ve been counting their blessings ever since. Heard here (officially) for the first time, this frantic slice of blue-eyed funk reveals a subsequently unexplored fascination with cheesy synths, shrieking falsetto and slap bass. Mainstream sounds like a compromised album. We basically thought we could make something better than a Simple Minds record. It’s possibly the most sonically beautiful record I’ve put my name to, but there’s not many actual songs.
