McCullys have a new album in the workshop !

There was a time in the mid 1980s when McCully Workshop were one of the very best acts on the rock music scene in South Africa. If they played your Matric dance you went to a cool school!

They had a couple of hit singles, Birds Flying High, Buccaneer and Chinese Junkman, and their shows where packed out. Notably their weekend residency in the Canterbury club in  Rondebosch, Cape Town where the band staged concerts including a mixture of covers, comedy and their own songs.

The central line-up did not change much and was set around the McCullagh brothers, Tully and Mike, guitarist Richard Black and keyboard man, Rupert Mellor. But there were many guest players too.

They went on the make 4 albums. Now they are back in the studio working on a new record. The first track taken from the new sessions, I got a Feeling (feat. Richard Black) is now out on all digital platforms. They also have a video on the net which shows the band goofing around at Tully's home studio. I Got a Feeling is a straight pop rocker written by Richard and Tully.

For the new album all the members are writing and even contributing to the production. No date has been fixed for the release but enough material has been recorded.
