Fuck the Mainstream formed in April 2000.With Will T. aka Dwill(vocals), Chad D. aka the Spyda (geetar), and Carlos G. aka Solrac(bass). At that time we had no drummer. During this time we recorded 4 to 5 very horrible straight to 8-track demos which will remain nameless. Shortly later we felt something was missing and we added Carrie A. aka Karebear/Shy Sensitive Flower to the line up as our then rhythm guitarist. Shortly later Chad moved and Carrie took over the duties of Lead Guitar. We then decided to give it one more chance and recorded our first real demo "who will you serve?" [2000] a 5 song cassette demo using a drum machine named B.I.L.L. The 1st pressing was originally only limited to 13 copies. However, due to demand we ended doing two more pressings of 13. Shortly there after we added the then Full Scale Riot drummer Steven F. aka the Machine Gun - who we had been trying to get as our drummer for some time- as our first live drummer. This was all during 2000. We played several parties and realized something was missing. By the end of 2000 we met someone who we felt fit the FTM mold and brought something fresh to the table. Thus, Adan D. joined the ranks of FTM as our Rhythm Guitarist to make Fuck the Main$trean an unstoppable force! This line up became the longest lasting FTM line up to date and rocked Texas relentlessly till mid 2005. Though, Steve left the band for most of 2004 due to conflicts with his family life and professional life. It was then shortly after completing their debut album "Sursum Corda" during the promotional shows that followed its release that Rhythm Guitarist Adan parted ways with FTM to pursue life in the BIG CITY. With an open spot in the band and another mini promotional tour soon to be underway the band turned to Max Keller aka Climaxxx to fill the now vacant spot. A month later they had the honor playing with & meeting Dr. Chud of the Misfits. This line up lasted till mid 2007 when Max and the band felt it best to part ways due to personal reasons. During this time FTM starting tracking a new 3 song EP with SpinalCore Records. Shortly there after long time guitarist Carrie A. decided she needed some time to herself and took an extended break which ended in her inevitably making the decision to leave the band indefinitely. During this time Will T took over guitar duties and the band continued to write and practice as a 3 piece whilst looking for a replacement guitarist. However, production on the EP was halted near the end of '07 for numerous reasons. It was around this time that Steven felt the need to take a break from the band as well. Leaving only Will & Carlos to carry on. As pressure & tensions rose things seemed bleak for the bands future. Will who had been homeless for most of the last year found it increasingly difficult to justify staying in a town that had nothing to offer, especially if there was no one left who cared to carry on the band he had spent the last 7 years fighting against all odds to man. Shortly, there after Will enrolled in College and left town to attend University for a bachelors in Fine Arts. The break didn't last long, and it wasn't long before Will meet & befriended a level headed drummer [Stacy V.] originally from Houston [CINEMA OF FEAR]. They clicked and started a short lived metal band called DEATH'S HEAD. The band's existance was breif but within weeks of its demise the two began writing new material. Shorlty thereafter Fuck the Mainstream was reborn. In no time at all Carlos was back on bass and work on a new album began. For the rest of 07 and all of 2008 they recorded, wrote, practiced, and fine tuned as a three piece. By Jan 09 the newly reformed band was ready to do some warmup shows. Longtime band friend Adam Gonzales aka Cowboy [Feeling Zero/OBLITERATES] was called in to handle some of the live guitar duties. They cram-practiced older material for a month, booked a few small local gigs, and then Adam went to jail. Former rhythm guitarist Max Keller aka Climaxxx agreed to fill in for the gigs. Then Cowboy was released and the group managed to get on the 4th Annual South Texas 420 Fest show and this time the band played with both Max & Adam. This show was also Max's last show with the band. The outpouring of postitive response from the recent shows was all it took to know they had to carry on. Then that May Stacy parted ways with the band to focus more time on his schoolings, and his new found passion for theatre. Drummerless but not hopeless the band instantly started searching for a drummer of the right caliber for the band. It was around this time that it should be mentioned that the band was located in two towns 2 1/2 hours apart. Adam soon relocated to Kingsville. A new drummer [Mike Valdez a fellow student at the local university and formely of the Del Rio based metal group Ferrum] was soon found who had the right combination of skills, levelheadedness, and inspiration. Practice resumed, new songs were writte
