Whyte & Mackay

Mission statement
To murder the pop classics by drowning them in alcoholic references

Who are these guys?

Thrust together by an accident of surnames, (Big) Jim Whyte and (Medium-sized) Tommy Mackay are solo performers in their own right on the Edinburgh acoustic scene.

After several live performances across the city to rave reviews, the pair have recorded a CD, 'Buckfast in Bed', available soon. Catch them while they're hot/sober.
