Blotto: Hello, My Name is Blotto, What's Yours?Time flies…

Yes, today marks the 33 & 1/3 anniversary of Blotto’s debut recording, the 33 & 1/3RPM EP, “Hello, My Name Is Blotto! What’s Yours?” The four-song slab o’ vinyl was released on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1980, featuring such now-golden oldies as “I Wanna Be a Lifeguard” and “We Are the Nowtones.”

Here’s a link to an interview in Metroland that Brian Stevens attempted to conduct with the original Blotto family – Cheese, Bowtie, Broadway, Lee Harvey, Sarge and Blanche – at the time of the release: (Part 1); (Part 2 – which also contains a review of the record by Peter Iselin).
