If you were alive in the Ontario Indie Scene in the mid 90’s, chances are you came across several of the brainchilds of Jason Amerlink and Gary Jongbloed…..the guitar duo of The Long Lots. Jason fronted two very successful bands, “Velma“, and “The Huskies“, making his mark at indie shows across Southwestern Ontario. After the demise of The Huskies, Jason met up with old pal Gary Jongbloed to form Arecibo, a guitar driven group reminiscent of Tristan Psionic or Polvo. Arecibo were regular openers for the local scenesters but never fully made the scene themselves.

Now the two are bound by blood……brothers in law and are bound by a new band…..The Long Lots. And these guys aren’t fighting to make any scenes today…they are the centre of the indie rock scene in Chatham Kent. In the spirit of brotherhood, they are teamed with ther brotherly rhythm section of Jason O’Rourke (drums), and Jeff O’Rourke (Bass).

Armed with a Blazing live show, The Long Lots are headed to your town. Make sure the fridge is stocked.
