Madder Lake in Concert

Mushroom Records first ever signees Melbourne icons Madder Lake first recorded in 1973, releasing their debut album “Stillpoint” to rave reviews and a gold record.

They then followed up with the critically acclaimed “Butterfly Farm” in 1975 cementing their place in Australian rock history.

Famously opening for The Stones and starring at all the 70s Sunbury concerts the band toured extensively throughout the 80s and 90s with various members coming and going.

Thirty years later another series of concert and festival gigs re-ignited the band and they recorded their new album “WORLD”.

From the quirky angst ridden title track “World” the new album moves to the hard rocking dance track “Bad Lands” before the gritty and crusty “Didn’t Understand Me” brings back the angst.”Dreaming” is an archetypal Madder Lake song with a big catchy riff and a hangdog vocal. A respectful nod to the style of John Lennon is “Please Please” a desperate plea for a little belief.”Hospital of Love” is one man’s need for some intense love treatment. It takes influences from silent movie theatres and those flickery dialogue cards with the scary chords.Things go dark and heavy with the huge orchestral sounds of “Heavy Weather” where the ups and downs of living together are as raw as now.Then finally comes the funky groove of “Calling” a song about the inner search for deeper meaning and the existential crisis of living in Australia in the 21st century.
