  Mushroom Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The label's inaugural release was an ambitious triple LP recording of the 1973 Sunbury Festival, and over the next few years they signed a number of important Australian acts of the period including Madder Lake and Mackenzie Theory.
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.

In 1984, The Angels switched to Mushroom Records, released one album (Two Minute Warning) and pretty much vanished from US radio.
Thing is, the music on Two Minute Warning was as hot as anything they'd done before, and "The Underground" may even be their most perfectly developed example of their dark-but-explosive style.
Until 1995, it was all on Mushroom Records, and this 2-CD set showcases a healthy portion of the best moments.
