Some Good News for Crocodile Harris fans

Terence McCullagh (aka Tully McCully) created a best selling pop artist in the form of balladeer, Crocodile Harris in 1973, when with brother Mike, he wrote and produced, Miss Eva Goodnight.  They organised for it to be released on the Parlophone label. The song became a top ten hit spending twelve weeks in the South Africa (SA) charts in the following year. 

Some years later he took "Croc" (as Tully refers to the late Robin Graham, who passed away in 2015) back into his new Spaced Out Sounds Studio in Cape Town and recorded, Give me the good news.  It is an anti-war anthem, an elaborate production with real string section and clever musical arrangement by Tully himself.

The song was written by Graham and Geoff Coxall and released by Warner Brothers - WEA in Johannesburg, where their A&R chief, Benjy Mudie took the project under his wing and turned it into a local hit. This was at the end of 1982.

Tully had made a short video clip to introduce the song and Benjy managed to arrange for his counterpart in France to get someone at the French TV station to play the clip shortly after the evening newscast. The French public loved it and it was not long before Crocodile Harris was on a plane to Paris. 

Croc was invited to showcase his song at Midem and in the spring of 1983 it charted in France. Rock historians say it went to number one on many stations there. The song also became a playlist favourite in Brazil. 

Now Tully has re-produced four tracks he had previously done for Croc on different albums and they are to be released as a digital EP, titled CROCODILE HARRIS - 2021 TRIBUTE on the 3rd of September. Also included in the EP are re-mastered versions of  the original singles of Miss Eva goodnight and Give me the Good News.

McCully/Mackay reveal title track for their forthcoming second album

  McCully/Mackay reveal title track for their forthcoming second album Progrock duo McCully/Mackay are proud to announce The Garden of the Snake, their new single and title track for their forthcoming second album.  Darker both musically and lyrically than their previous works, the track explores themes of exploitation, manipulation and corruption inspired by familiar myths and parables as well as the modern landscape of our ever-increasingly authoritarian world. “There’s an increasing number of laws and encroachment on individuals” says Tully.  “Levels of ever-growing red tape are suffocating creativity and expression. It’s a system that benefits the wealthy and powerful, who can buy their own justice.” The band are known for their bold instrumentation and continue to push their skills with their new material. Along with the signature synth and guitar sounds, Garden of the Snake heightens the eerie atmosphere with a violin solo. "Tully was hinting at me playing some
