Tally-Oh!- Hit the Beast 7”

Last but not least, to complete our Halloween trifecta, it’s back to Italy for an uber-rare single from 1984.

Strangely enough, there are conflicting reports on this release. While the sleeve clearly says Tally-Ho!, many sources claim that the band’s name is, in fact, Tally-Oh! Not sure where the truth lies, but my guess is that someone made a typo on the album sleeve or around the net, or perhaps the band meant for it to be somewhat confusing. Perhaps someone can shed some light on this mystery?

Either way, you can expect some excellent, upbeat, synth and beat driven tunes here. A little jerky and bass-heavy for post-punk heads, but complete with those minimal grooves we all know and love. Definitely a must hear!

    Wow! I had a vastly inferior rip of this lying around for years, and always wondered what could have been! THANKS!!!

  2. It's Tally oh !, and it's really infindable,as even more the Paranoja one posted just before, and I really wonder where did you find these, in years of being inside the italian wave radio scene I still havent even saw these two !!! (no, the Paranoja only once, very expensive in a flea market)
    Quite astonished… Indomito from Italy !


    on Hit the Beast, the lead singer sounds just like Andy O from Blue Zoo…cool..

  5. Hi!

    I was browsing the internet looking for some more news about “Tally Oh!” (I’m an Italian girl from 1984 and with your blog you’re making me discover plenty of totally new things for me – so, first of all, thank you), and I stumbled upon this blog post


    with an interesting review of Tally Oh! made by the Italian magazine “Rockerilla” (December 1985, n° 52), maybe you could find it interesting (?) .
