Established in Melbourne in 1969 by then popular Melbourne radio DJ and Kommotion TV show host Ken Sparkes and John MacDonald then owner of a very influential record shop (The Disc Shop) in Melbourne. Biggest act on the label was Melbourne act “Daddy Cool”. Sparkes quickly sold his share to the label's first recording artist Robbie Porter. Porter had a very succesful recording career as Rob EG. in the early-mid '60's and had recently returned from several years in the U.S. After Sparmac folded, he went on to establish  Wizard Records who re-issued the Sparmac albums.
MacDonald later founded Avenue Records.
