Meet The Blenders

Who are the grooviest* guys in school? Arguably, The Blenders!

They have an indescribable sound that I would describe as "old and new," "inside out," and "reel-to-real." A natural sound that comes from lots of practice. Gordon, Derek, Chas, and Vincent practice every day after homework, and it shows! Loafer never practices, and it shows!

 

Their original red cassette known as 'The Ketchup Tape' (recorded in A-V Club) has earned grudging praise from the Sting-Ray City School Board. That's no easy feat for a "rock combo".  Now let's meet the boys!

No one is as smart as Gordon. He likes BB rifles and impossible-

to-understand scientific stuff. There's a girl named Nadine in Chemistry Club who wears glasses. He taught her how to blend. Gordon denies this.

Girls love Derek on account of he is the poetic and romantic Blender. He proposed to a bunch of them already. If you could get him off his surfboard (good luck), pull back his blonde hair and look into his blue eyes, he would probably propose to you. 

Chas used to be called "Chocolate Chip" and he was a slob but he cleaned up his act so he can get a girlfriend this year. His new dashing appearance confuses everyone. He plays guitar and wears a turtleneck like the Man from U.N.C.L.E. 

 

Vincent started middle school this year and he just figured out that girls exist. Maybe someday he will talk to one. Or maybe not. For now, he is content to let his keyboard do the talking.

Loafer is the drummer. He is, um ... very polite! 

Now that you have met the boys, please try not to fight over which Blender will be your Dream Date!
