The Morning Benders A.K.A Pop ETC – Everything is Gone Mixtape
Mar 2012 26

Wow I was surprised this morning when I found out about the new direction of The Morning Benders, you’ll be as well. So here’s their latest mixtape “Everything is Gone” was released with this little remark:

I once went off on a morning bender so bad that I changed my band name to something stupid.“We had just released Big Echo, and for the first time we were preparing for a world tour. We had toured a fair amount leading up to Big Echo, but never overseas, so when it came time to tour the UK and Europe we were quite excited. The touring went well, and we had an amazing time, but also something happened that we hadn’t anticipated. As soon as we had landed in London people started asking us about our band name. “What does ‘Bender’ mean to you?” people would ask. “Are you seriously called ‘The Morning Benders’?” was a common question. For those of you reading from America, you may still be confused. Well, it turns out that the word ‘bender’ in the UK and many parts of Europe is a slang term for ‘homosexual.’ We were told our band name was the equivalent of ‘The Morning Fags’ in America. We had been called The Morning Benders for 5 years, and we were just finding this out now? It was shocking.”

    Yeah they changed their name to Pop ETC and I would say the whole general direction of their sound which some may not like but I’m definitely vibing too. Check it out. Fresh fresh, different different, pop pop.
