Pop Etc

In the midst of relocating from San Francisco to Brooklyn, slickly polished indie rock quartet the Morning Benders parted ways with bassist Tim Or and changed their name to POP ETC. This decision came after the band toured extensively and learned that the word "bender" had some homophobic slang connotations in parts of the U.K. In a press release regarding the name change, the band stated "We simply cannot go on using a name that is demeaning to the gay community. The reason we are making music is to reach and unite as many different kinds of people as possible, and the idea that our name may be hateful towards anyone makes us sick." Along with the name change, the move, and the reconfiguration of bandmembers (bandleader Chris Chu stayed on with multi-instrumentalists Julian Harmon and brother Jon Chu), POP ETC took on a drastically more radio-ready sound than the shimmery indie rock of the Morning Benders' albums. A debut album was slated for summer release in 2012, with slick production by Lil Wayne and Kanye West producer Andrew Dawson as well as a collaborative production with Danger Mouse. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi

Ya know? That never even came to mind for me. Sorry to read that such great talent collaborated with illuminati scum like West and Lil' Looser...
Their reason for the name change is absolutely ridiculous. . have we become this childish and hypersensiti v e ? And how, by any stretch of the imagination, could a 'morning f*g' be a logical thought construct, and moreover, how/why would this be offensive to any reasonable human being. . ?
I like their reason for the name change, but I much prefer their indie feel in The Morning Benders.
Awesome group and considerate of people's feelings!
missin the good ol' benders.
