Biography

There are two groups with the name Blotto:

1) Blotto is a punk band from Tokyo, Japan that is currently active.

2) Blotto was a band from Albany, New York active during the 1980’s.

Blotto (Tokyo, Japan)

1) Blotto are from Tokyo/Yokohama, Japan. Blotto began in 2001 after meeting at a punk show and started playing shows in summer 2002. They planned a show called “Lame Gig Contest” and a lot of good bands played it. Like Fifth Wheel, Sprech Chor, Raise Mind, I Excuse, The Tim Version, Out Of Style, One Leaf, Unching Style, Life Indicator, Four Tomorrow, Baby Little Tablets, The Scruff. …and more. Blotto is always the lowest grade in the contest. So far they’ve released two CD’s on Yokohama’s Anti-New Waves records and a 7” on Snuffy Smile. They like The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Crimpshrine, Fifteen, Dillinger Four, Beer, Whiskey and soda, Sake, Sho-chu.

2) Blotto (Albany, New York)
For all the bands that were formed and performed and re-formed and deformed throughout the Capital District, very few ever made any sort of splash into the national pop music scene. There were the exceptions: Betty George’s version of “Sentimental Journey” is considered the definitive interpretation; Jay Traynor was the original namesake in “Jay and the Americans” (recording the Top 10 hit “She Cried”). The Knickerbockers (“Lies”) practiced through Albany before making it big.

On the other end of the spectrum were the bands that shoulda- coulda- woulda- but didn’t.
