General info

  longstoryshort began when singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist, Douglas Wortel and percussionist, Vin Maietta hooked up at a Joe Strummer concert. They were amazed by their hero's ability to take great rock songwriting and throw it down in a percussive context. Watching Joe blare out old Clash tunes was equally inspiring for the newly formed duo.
  Bassist, Chris Williams was the first to be added to this forming band. Chris' dad is an old school punk rocker who would spin Johnny Thunders and the Velvet Underground around the house. Consequently, at the ripe old age of 20, Chris decided to follow in the footsteps of his dad's idols and made music his life. It's been said that Doug and Vin also just really liked Chris' sideburns.
  During a gig at a local Brooklyn bar, the boys met Tony Limuaco, who at the time was wielding an old accordion. The guys asked him to play on a couple of tunes and fell in love with the way it sounded. Tony also flirts with playing the keyboard.
  Prior to an in-store show in Brooklyn, Doug called an old friend by the name of Anthony Romano. Doug asked Anthony to come down and play guitar with them during the set. According to Doug, Anthony is probably the most inspiring guitar player he's ever heard, Anthony having been influenced by the likes of Frank Zappa and Eddie Hazel of Funkadelic.
  The band was complete.
  longstoryshort has accomplished much in the eight months that the band has been together. They have gathered quite a following in New York City and have just completed their first ep, "That'd Be Swell." The band is currently in pre-production for their first music video to accompany the ep.
