Flashback: It’s the 35th Anniversary of “Hello! My Name Is Blotto. What’s Yours?”

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Yes, believe it or not, this week marks the 35th anniversary of Blotto’s debut recording, the four-song, 12-inch slab o’ vinyl, Hello! My Name Is Blotto. What’s Yours?, which featured that sun-soaked song o’ summer “I Wanna Ba a Lifeguard,” as well as the semi-classic lounge band ode “(We Are) The Nowtones.”

In honor of the occasion, the ’80s power-pop parodyists uncovered a long-lost video from early 1982, recorded at Toad’s Place in New Haven. The 45-minute “Tonight at Toad’s” show features live performances as well as an interview with the band. It aired locally in Connecticut back in the day and hasn’t been seen since… until now.
