ARTIST BIO - Elastic No-No Band

Elastic No-No Band is an Anti-folk group based in New York City. Started in the mid-2000s, the band’s name was initially just a pseudonym for its current leader and main songwriter, Justin Remer. Since 2005, Elastic No-No Band has also included pianist Herb Scher and multi-instrumentalist Preston Spurlock. In 2005 and 2006, the band would perform sporadically with Clint Scheibner, who would play a bass drum attached to his chest, as though he were in a marching band. Since 2007, the band has included drummer Doug Johnson, who plays a standard drum kit.

Remer did a solo US tour as Elastic No-No Band during spring of 2008.

Remer initially used the name Elastic No-No Band as a personal pseudonym when he wrote and performed songs and film scores for some of his short films. These films include In Defense of Lemmings (2004) and Loved and/or Laid (2006).[3] Remer also contributed songs to the Troma films Tales from the Crapper (2004)[4] and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2007)[5] as Elastic No-No Band.
