Madder Lake formed in 1971 in Melbourne and lasted until 1978. They played inventive progressive rock, which was full of great guitar work and complex arrangements, and were the first band to be signed to a Mushroom Records contract.
Their debut album, "Stillpoint", was adventurous and owed its unique sound to Mick Fettes' unique vocals, John McKinnon's sparse keyboards and the blues-tinged guitar playing of Brendon Mason. When Still Point was released in 1973. It had a lot of competition from hugely successful overseas bands like; Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple. which would not have helped with the sales or promotion of the album.
Unfortunately, this album was a little bit too complicated and way-out for most Australian rock music listeners.
