We are happy to announce that their album title is The Unicorns are Screaming.
Tully McCully (Terence McCullagh) and Gordon Mackay have come together to create a new album project of their kind of music, Progressive Rock. Terence is a multi-talented artist, with years of production and performing experience. Gordon is a classically trained keyboard player who moved into jazz and rock.
The two had performed together in rock bands and when Terence decided to start work on a solo project, Gordon was the obvious choice for the keyboard sessions. As the project progressed, they realised that they should also write music together. The result is that Gordon contributed to three songs to the album, one of which is all his composition. Terence wrote seven tracks alone.

Some time ago, Terence sold his successful recording studio business and built a dedicated studio in his Cape Town home. There he could create in his own time. We had worked together in the 1980s on different artists including his productions of Lesley Rae Dowling.
One of his pet projects was the band Falling Mirror whose final album was recorded at his home studio. My firm distributed the back catalogue recordings of the cult group and I wanted to add his new production to the band's catalogue. The record features some of the best guitar recordings of the late Allan Faull. Since then there have been numerous McCullagh productions released by my labels.
During the process of producing the tracks for the latest McCully Workshop album, I remarked that some of the material might fit into a solo project by Terence. He had not actually done a solo album though many of his productions with other acts are often very much McCullagh creations.
The new album is a personal choice of repertoire. The lyrics too are very personal. It is a musical statement and not an obviously commercial release. They have delivered a ten track album, with the artists being billed as McCully/Mackay.
for Tin Can Discs.
A marketing decision has been taken to change the artist name to - McCully/Mackay. We will do a separate press release with the relevant links.
