Welcome to www.tallyho.co.nz, officially launched May
2009 (unofficially October 2008)
Before the age of internet, the printed medium occupied
an even more exulted place when communicating a bands
The gig poster, the magazine advert, the hand flier
were the primary medium by which you found out about
bands, gigs and records (or tapes) oh and the subsequent
word of mouth, there were no chat rooms, no spam, texting
or facebook to muddy the waters.
As a fan of Punk Goth Ska New Wave/No Wave and the Flying
Nun phenomenon (I managed to avoid being a bloody hippy)
in the 1980's and 1990', I always (geekily) collected
posters, fliers and adverts out of magazines like Rip
It Up (early era) BiFiM, Monitor, Garage, RAD, etc by
New Zealand bands etc and put them inside the record
Now in my 40's with an appropriately cynical outlook
on modern life and the current music scene I decided
to do something with my spare time (surprisingly going
to gigs is less of a priority once you have children)
and create a website to share these pieces of (almost)
lost art for all to see, also there is an element of
ego gratification as well.
here is an ever increasing collection of my own (as
I scan and add them, I still have several hundred items
to work through!) and other posters etc that I have
sourced, been sent or found on the internet, consider
it a work in progress, forever incomplete and never
claiming to be the authority.
you'd like to send me one to place, excellent and
I'll of course credit you. If you use one from here,
please feel free too*, but put me in your links page
or reference this site, I like visitors.
Boak (ex No Tag, Infectious)
Gilberd (ex Condemned Sector/Neoteric Tribesmen)
Direen (Builders, Bilders, Soluble Fish)
Denniston (ex K4, Paradox)
Stiggs (ex Suburban Reptiles, The Swingers, The
Mayes (Failsafe Records)
and anybody I've missed for sending me posters and
or helping/pointing me in the right direction.
Please let me know what you think, and yes some scans
are imperfect, well was that what it was all about.
Oh yeah I update/add to the site once a month usually
about 50-60 new items.
My favourite all time New Zealand bands live...Kiwi
Animal, SPUD, The Gordons, Exploding Budgies, 7 Dials,
The Henchmen, Skeptics, Fetus Productions, Double
Happys and K4/Paradox

Pin Group, Childrens Hour (original lineup), Rebel
Features (original lineup) Nocturnal Projections,
Beat Rythm Fashion, and Marching Girls
Copyright is owned by the person that designed them,
these are only visual representation at low dpi, they
are not of reprint quality and are not for sale. You
can ask me to remove them, I might, but it'll have
to be a bloody good reason to make me do so.
Copying of these items for personal use is way cool.
However if you copy them for commercial use or to
promote a commercial site or activity then that is
way uncool and I will complain and shout a lot and
perhaps undertake legal action if bothered enough
to do so. This doesn't apply to the bands and/or band
members or artwork designers.
27th April 2010
as you might have noticed, the site has been down
for over a month, this was due to a virus that
decimated my archives and original files.
I have been able to recover and remake most of
the site, but also used the opportunity created
to revamp the site to decrease capacity use and
simplify the layout.
I think it look's a lot better, though I'm still
fiddling here and there and moving things around
and I'm still crediting items, so don't feel peeved
if I've missed you, though If I don't sort it
within a month, let me know.
My apologies to all whom I haven't replied to,
busy doing uni-work recently, aswell as taking
care of The Mountain Goats tour earlier this month.
48 new items and some new links.
Oh of course, don't forget NZ Music Month
kicks off on May 1st, visit their site www.nzmusicmonth.co.nz
If you'd like an email sent to you each time I
update the site, email me here
