Longstocking were a Los Angeles queercore-punk band.

Formed in 1995 by singer and guitarist Tamala Poljak, the group had originally been a guitar and drums duo. Tamala had previously been in the bands Oiler and Fleabag. The group released several singles, including a split single with Team Dresch on Sub Pop, before disbanded in 1997, just after the release of their debut album, "Once Upon A Time Called Now".

After the band had broken up, one of Longstocking's songs was featured on the soundtrack of the film "Fuel" and was included on the "Fuel Soundtrack" CD, released in 1998.

After this, Tamala Poljak contributed to the collaborative project called "KaraNEEDoke", a set of double 7" singles released on the Kill Rock Stars label with participants Nomy Lamm, Slim Moon, Audrey Marrs, Donna Dresch, Tracy Sawyer, formerly of Heavens to Betsy, and Tamala, with music by The Need.Tamala then formed her next band, The Automaticans, who released a split single with Team Dresch on Metal Monkey Records. In the early 2000s, Tamala joined with Jody Bleyle of Team Dresch and Whitney Skillcorn of The Little Deaths to form Infinite Xs. The band released one recording on Chainsaw Records.
