March, 2003: The Nojons are started by Jonny Nojon as a one-man recording project in his dad’s basement outside of Philadelphia.
March, 2004: The Nojons release their first CD “Sophistocution” on the shitty record label, ingeniously titled “Nojon Records.” It immediately “sells” out of its first pressing of 50 copies.
March, 2004: Jonny Nojon is joined by Petey Nojon on guitar, Chrissy Nojon on drums and Knuckles Nojon on bass.
April 24, 2004: This line-up played its first and only show. They were joined by their friends Bad Cops at the Red Haus in Syracuse, NY while some girl walked around the party all butt-naked.
February, 2005: Jonny Nojon records some tracks for BootlegRobot.com’s “28 Days of Rock” feature.
June, 2005: The Nojons release their second CD “Get Stoked”. This time, Jonny’s crappy musicianship is aided on two tracks by the blazing in-studio drum chops of Chrissy Nojon.
October, 2006: After relocating to the New York City area, The Nojons begin to practice under a new line up. This time, Knuckles is replaced by Jimmy Nojon on bass. They play one or two shows in this manner.
January, 2007: Petey Nojon switches to bass as the band becomes a 3-piece and begins recording some tracks at Bangers Studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
April-ish, 2007: The Nojons release a 4-song, self-titled 7-inch on Punks Before Profits/Feral Kid Records. They play a couple more shows here and there.
October, 2007: Just in time for Halloween, The Nojons release a 4-track CD called “Night of The Nojons” on Time To Operate Records. They play another show or something.
Currently, The Nojons are halfway done with writing a 3rd full-length album. Scheduled release date is tentatively set for Summer, 2008.
