 Mushroom Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mushroom Records was an Australian record company formed by Michael Gudinksi and Ray Evans in 1972.
Mushroom struggled to survive for its first two years and reportedly came close to folding on several occasions, but the label was dramatically pushed to the forefront of the Australian music scene in early 1975 following the massive success of Skyhooks, whose debut album became the biggest-selling Australian LP ever released up to that time.
In the 1990s, Mushroom missed out on what could have been one of its biggest signings, and although the label was reportedly in the front-running to sign rising new Australian band silverchair, the group opted to sign with the Sony label instead.
