Blotto - "I Wanna Be A Lifeguard"
It's officially summer so what better way to kick it off than with a classic new wave beach song. Blotto spent two years honing their chops playing the clubs in Albany, New York, then raised enough money to produce a four-song ep which this song comes from. It seemed that anytime The B52's "Rock Lobster" was played in a club in 1980 it was followed by Blotto's "I Wanna Be A Lifeguard".

Taking a cue from The Ramones, Blotto was vocalist Sarge Blotto, bassist Cheese Blotto, guitarist Broadway Blotto, guitar-vocalist Bowtie Blotto, and drummer Lee Harvey Blotto. Female lead singer Blanche Blotto joined the band for a while, then quit, being replaced by Chevrolet Blotto.
