Complete Demos (3)
Tally Hall remains an eclectic songwriting team because they have four primary songwriters that tend to write their songs on their own and bring them to the band to work on and enhance. They try to keep a good balance and equal share of songs by each songwriter on their albums.
The writer of each song was consistently written on the back cover of every album/EP until Good & Evil. The Tally Hallmanac is now the best place to find this information. http://www.hiddeninthesand.com/wiki/

My definition of Tally Hall’s “older stuff” consists of:
- Complete Demos (LP)
- The Pingry EP (EP)
- Partyboobytrap (EP)
- Welcome To Tally Hall (EP)
None of these are for sale anymore through the band. My guess is the EPs can now be considered collectors items and will never be pressed again.
Complete Demos has released on Bandcamp, so that’s cool.
In the meantime, you can currently find MP3s of these older recordings lying around the internet if you look hard enough.
Complete Demos is the first full length album released by Tally Hall. It was a collection of well-produced demos recorded in Joe’s attic using a digital camcorder and recording each track one by one. Though not available at their online store at this time, you can usually purchase a copy of The Complete Demos if you attend one of Tally Hall’s concerts or if you contact the band.
