Electric Soup is the first compilation album by Australian rock band Hoodoo Gurus, originally released in September 1992 via BMG.

The Hoodoo Gurus formed in Sydney in 1981 by the mainstay Dave Faulkner (songwriter, lead singer and guitarist) and later joined by Richard Grossman (bass), Mark Kingsmill (drums), and Brad Shepherd (guitar, vocals, harmonica).

Electric Soup contained all the bands singles that had been released up to 1992. The album was released with a companion album Gorilla Biscuit, which was a collection of the bands B-Sides and rarities.

In an interview with the Canberra Times, Brad Shepherd spoke about both albums:  “…you just have to listen to (Electric Soup), it's just jam packed full of pretty groovy songs... The best of was always the record company's idea and the B-side was always our idea to combat that. We think if a best of is representative of a band then a B-side album is even more representative..." Shepherd also explained the album names: "Electric Soup is another name for Jack Daniels bourbon... Gorilla Biscuit is slang for 'downers' like mandrax...”.

The album met with considerable commercial success, reaching #3 on the Australian ARIA albums charts.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2018 reissue on 180 gram red coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a printed insert and remastered audio, pressed in Australia via Big Time Records.
