Schlesinger and Collingwood Uillyamsovskom met in college in 1980, but played in different bands (Collingwood - Merci Buckets, Schlesinger - Ivy). Again they met in the mid-1990s, when the artist and Fountains Of Wayne was formed. First album,released in 1996 and is named the same as the group - "Fountains Of Wayne", he gained fame with his two singles were taken in rotation radio, but the album was recognized as unprofitable. The second album "Utopia Parkway", released as the first, Atlantic Records, was favorably received by critics, and, like, liked the public ,but also proved to be unprofitable (125.000 sold copies). After two rounds in support of the album and failures with "Utopia Parkway", the group ceases to exist temporarily. In 1999, Atlantic Records says goodbye to Fountains Of Wayne, terminating the contract with them to produce albums.Schlesinger then acted as producer and co-author of many projects, revived the Ivy group. Collingwood also continued to play in local scale group.
Group once again manifested itself in early 2001, when the carpet was recorded for the song The Kinks "Better Things". In 2003, an independent label S-Curve Records third album Fountsins Of Wayne was released, which brought him the greatest success - "Welcome Interstate Managers". Then it was filmed video for the song "Stacey`s Mom" and "Mexican Wine". The song "Stacey`s Mom" became a hit, but the clip on "Mexican Wine" had a mixed reaction, and was removed from the ether. In this clip young children sang "think I`ll have another glass of Mexican Wine", as guitarist for some reason, spilled wine on the naked belly lying on the beach woman. Nevertheless, "Welcome Interstate Managers" was the first album brought the group fame even outside the United States. In 2005, he produced a collection of "Out Of State Plates", containing old and two new songs, and at the end of 2006, the band stuck a new album for the record.
