Q. How did you come up with the name?
A. Ed, the head of our percussion department came up with 
   the name. He was inspired by the skater, Neil Blender.

   which is part of the name, represents our band philosophy, 
   to blend each members vision and talent. 

Q. How would you classify Blendre's music?
A. That's a hard question to answer. It's easier to say what it's

   shows with?

   Catholic Girls, Bomb Paris, Soul Fist. We look
   forward to adding to that list.

Q. Why do dogs feet smell like Doritos?
A. I think it's the other way around. I think that the 
   good people at Frito Lay must have done some 
   test marketing where they found out that most people
   like the smell of dogs feet. So they figured it would
   be great to put that aroma into a chip. As we all know 
   it has paid off, because hey, who doesn't love Doritos...
