In 1973 Madder Lake rocketed Mushroom Records into the big arena with the company’s; First Gold Album ‘Stillpoint’ by Madder Lake. Now 45 Years later after their First Gold Single they are back for a string of shows. Performing the hit album ‘Stillpoint’ in its entirety as well as tracks from their critically acclaimed follow up album ‘Butterfly Farm’ and 2015’s new album ‘World’ across two huge sets!
Madder Lake formed in Melbourne in 1968, they were one of the first bands signed to the Michael Gudinski co-owned Mushroom Records which released their debut single, ‘Goodbye Lollipop’ in February 1973, followed by the album ‘Stillpoint’ in August, featuring their most recognisable single,‘12lb Toothbrush’.
“1973 was a peak year for Madder Lake. In January they played at the second Sunbury festival, and Mick fondly recalls ‘hanging out’ backstage with host Paul Hogan. In February with Goodbye Lollipop in the charts, they supported The Rolling Stones at their Melbourne concerts at the Kooyong Tennis Centre. In April ’73 Mushroom released their classic debut album, Stillpoint, recorded at TCS Studios in January and March, produced by John French. It was another breakthrough success for the band and provided Mushroom with their first gold record. It reached #11 nationally and #2 in Melbourne, where they had become one of the top live draws.” – Ian McFarlane
