The Morning Benders Change Name To POP ETC

Recently, the band now formerly-known-as The Morning Benders announced they had changed their name to POP ETC. Comprised of Christopher Chu, Jonathan Chu and Julian Harmon, the band chose to take the opportunity to adopt a new moniker before the release of their upcoming follow-up to their excellent 2010 album Big Echo. As detailed in a lengthy post on the band’s old website, the cause of the change centered on their use of “benders” which carries a homophobic association in parts of Europe and the U.K. An impressive new mixtape can be downloaded at their new website, and a new Twitter account @popetcetera has been further updating details of the band’s new name and music.
