Mushroom

Mushroom

Profile:
Label formed by Michael Gudinski and Ray Evans (2) in Melbourne, Australia in 1972.

Its earliest signings included Skyhooks and Split Enz and by the mid Seventies it was Australia's leading independent label, in partnership with Festival Records Pty. Ltd. The company entry associated most to this label is Mushroom Records Pty. Ltd.

Mushroom went from strength to strength in the 1980s as Split Enz had substantial international success and they signed Kylie Minogue. Subsidiary labels like Liberation Records & White Label Records were also set up, as well as branches in London and Auckland.

In 1993 half the company was sold to Rupert Murdoch's Newscorp and the remainder in 1998. Murdoch merged it with his Festival Records Pty. Ltd. and Mushroom Distribution Services (MDS) to form the company Festival Mushroom Records Pty. Ltd. in 1999.

When FMR was sold to Warner Music in 2005, they revived the Mushroom Records name as an imprint.
