Info

Enon is an indie rock band founded by John Schmersal, Rick Lee and Steve Calhoon. Currently, Enon is situated in Philadelphia, though the band is known for being part of the New York music scene. Schmersal was originally in the band Brainiac and formed Enon (named after the village in Ohio, which is close to Schmersal's hometown of Dayton) with Lee and Calhoon following the death of Brainiac's singer Timmy Taylor and their subsequent disbandment. Lee and Calhoon were both previous members of the band Skeleton Key. Lee created a number of percussion sounds for the band playing a "junk kit" including a Radio Flyer wagon, propane tank, and old hubcaps. After the release of their first album Believo! in 1999, Calhoon left the band and was replaced by Toko Yasuda (bass/vocals) and Matt Schulz (drums). With the new lineup, Enon released High Society in 2002 and toured with The Faint. A majority of Enon's albums have been released on the Chicago-based indie label, Touch and Go Records. Lee left the band, and Enon went on to release Hocus Pocus in 2003, and a collection of singles and previously difficult to find internet-released songs with a bonus DVD entitled Lost Marbles and Exploded Evidence in February 2005. Enon released their fourth studio album, Grass Geysers...Carbon Clouds on Touch & Go Records on October 9, 2007.http://www.touchandgorecords.com/bands/album.php?id=435 In summer 2008, drummer Matt Schulz announced that he would be leaving the group to pursue other interests. Enon will tour for the remainder of 2008 and into 2009 with a replacement drummer before Schulz's replacement will be announced in early 2009.
