Besides Schmersal (vocals, guitar
, random sounds), Enon's current members include Toko Yasuda
on bass and vocals and Matt Schultz
on drums. Steve Calhoon, their first drummer, disappeared sometime after the recording of Believo!
, and guitarist/electronic noise-maker Rick Lee
recently went to seek his fortune elsewhere.
Their early stuff is a bit of a cross between Brainiac
and Skeleton Key
(Rick and Steve's former band) - a little bit funky
, a lot clanky, and generally smart
as hell. Their current output remains wonderfully intelligent and noisy, but has added a lot of wildly experimental sounds as well as a stronger rooted pop sensibility that makes for some damned catchy, danceable, screwed-up songs.
