Biography

There are at least 3 bands with this name:

1) The Longshots are a 4-piece garage rock n’ roll band from Ft. Worth, Texas. Comprising of 4 lead writers & 3 lead singers. Joey Gorman-gtr/vox, Alex Zobel-lead gtr/vox, Jake Paleschic-bass/vox, with Kris Luther on drums/vox. Luther, Gorman, & Paleschic all grew up within the north Texas area. Zobel grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and found himself in Texas chasing the American dream. Gorman & Paleschic did not begin writing music together until they were formally introduced to eachother when moving into the same household/commune of sorts in Nashville, TN in 2010. Back in Ft. Worth, Zobel & Luther had already started the band “The Hanna Barbarians” where Luther actually plays lead guitar. After Gorman and Paleschic moved back home from Tennessee and after various writing/jam sessions in late 2011/early 2012, the combination/chemistry was undeniable/inevitable… result: Longshots. The sound is directly influenced by the founders of what is instinctively known as “Rock n’ Roll”…everyone from Chuck Berry, Little Richard to Johnny Thunders and The Flamin’ Groovies. Mixing this American counter culture roots music with the current wave of Black Lips/Strange Boys/FIDLAR infused Garage/proto-punk…the boys have come to labeling their energetic, instantly gratifying sound as “Junk Rock”. (as in “junk food”…not strictly junkie music)
