Blotto are an amazing band from Tokyo, Japan. They've released splits with bands like Ringers, The Measure [sa], Modern Machines and a lot of other great bands. Soundwise, they're pretty similar to bands like Bent Outta Shape, Ringers, Monikers; pretty much any other band that draws influence from Crimpshrine (they even do a sweet "Wake Up" cover!)

I can't find any of their music online to stream, but here are some pretty cool youtube videos to get an idea of their sound:

If you're into it, I'd gladly point you in the direction of some actual recordings to download.

We are ugly, but we have the music."

BLOTTO is the BEST BAND from Japan right now. I'm glad someone is doing these now. There was a while earlier this year where BOTM was getting ignored.

Yeah what I've heard from Blotto has always been good. Never really got into them for some reason though.

Yeah, one of the days was on one of the Best Friends Day shows here, so I got to see them play with Strike Anywhere, None More Black, Off With Their Heads, Ringers, No Friends, and Gatorface, all on one show!

I just downloaded their split with World Today, awesome stuff! I first heard Blotto on the soundtrack CD that came with the second Snakepit book, they're great.
