Biography

Philadelphia, United States (1998 – 2011)

Enon was an indie rock band, founded in Philadelphia in 1998 by John Schmersal, Rick Lee and Steve Calhoon. After Brainiac’s disbandment, guitarist Schmersal teamed up with ex-Skeleton Key members Lee and Calhoon to form Enon.

Following the release of their first album “Believo!” in 2000, Calhoon left the band, and was replaced by Toko Yasuda on vocals and bass, and Matt Schulz on drums; with this line up, Enon released “High Society” in 2002.

Lee left the band, and Enon went on to release “Hocus Pocus” in 2003, and a collection of rare material entitled “Lost Marbles and Exploded Evidence” was released in 2005.

Enon performed on a February 2010 episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! entitled “Space”.
In a May 2011 interview, after touring with Caribou for a good portion of 2010 and 2011, Schmersal confirmed the band “is pretty much over” with no plans to follow up on Grass Geysers…Carbon Clouds.

In 2011 and 2012, Toko Yasuda toured as a member of St. Vincent playing synth. She also released the album Parthenon under the name PLVS VLTRA. Parthenon is her first solo album which features collaborations with Danny Ray Thompson of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Scott Allen of Thunderbirds Are Now!, Thomas Keville of Man Man, and John Schmersal, also of Enon, who produced the album.

    I think John's new bands Crooks On Tape and Vertical Scratchers should be mentioned here.

    Shame that a band this fun never caught on more. They deserved more than they got, imho.

    Saw these guys live in a tiny club around a decade ago. I was really drunk and enthused to finally see them live, so I kept screaming "YEAAAH" in a gutteral voice after every song like I was at a Deicide show or something. Eventually John started looking at me weird so I shut the fuck up.

    I modded John's digi 002!! Love this band. Saw them at a block party in Chicago in 05 I think. They opened up for Interpol. First I had heard of them or Interpol so yeah... that was a f-ing awesome night. Feel in love with two bands at once.
