Mainstream is the only album of the UK band Quiet Sun. The band had originally split up in 1972. Phil Manzanera joined Roxy Music, Bill MacCormick joined Matching Mole, Charles Hayward joined This Heat and Dave Jarrett became a mathematics teacher. In 1975, Manzanera booked a studio for 26 days to record his first solo album Diamond Head and got Quiet Sun together again to record a studio album from their previously composed material at the same time

This album pretty much ticks all of those boxes but there is an extra aggressiveness to the music that is absent from a lot of works from the genre. Manzanera's guitar style became subdued during his latter years with Roxy Music, maybe due to the band's commercial ascent into the realms of mainstream pop, but on here we have quite a different approach. Free to explore and improvise within a free-form setting Manzanera often lets rip with some quite frenzied playing and almost hard-rock style riffing.
