  The Mindbenders by Jack Sparks--Index
The Mindbenders claimed to refute the “most dangerous cults.” It falsely accused the local churches of practicing brainwashing and said “the brainwashing, or mindbending, of the Local Church is, I believe, the most powerful and lasting of any cult on the contemporary scene” (p.
Interestingly, many of these same charges were made against the EOC in the SCP/Bill Counts article previously mentioned, and one of the false accusations made in Sparks' book--that the local churches intended to steal members from other Christian groups--was actually a reflection of EOC's own stated intentions.

The Mindbenders made their final American tour in July 1966, kicking off in Atlanta on Independence Day, in front of a capacity 25,000 crowd.
Art had been reduced to a crapshoot and, even as the first of the Mindbenders' efforts, a version of the Boxtops' "The Letter." ground its way to number 42 in September 1967 (the competition, by the way, reached number five), it was clear that the end was in sight.
The Mindbenders then broke up, calling it a day at the Liverpool Empire on November 20, 1968, the last night of a U.K. tour with the Who, Arthur Brown, and Joe Cocker.

The Mindbenders' original recording of the song was produced by Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
This success was followed up with a very skillful adaptation of Clint Ballard's "The Game of Love," which featured a moonlighting member of the Spinners folk group on backing vocals and a devastating Stewart guitar solo, played on a Les Paul borrowed from Jimmy Page.

Again it was a tiny drop in the ocean, but this time the Mindbenders were able to capitalize upon it.
The Mindbenders' original recording of the song was produced by Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham -- their label rejected it and insisted on a re-recording, cut with Fontana's own Jack Baverstock.
So, with Stewart taking lead vocals, the band finished the set themselves; the audience seemed to enjoy themselves and the decision was made to carry on as a three-piece, which was precisely what their label and management had been planning all along.

 Mindbenders
The Mindbenders were an extremely competent band who were brought together originally to back Wayne Fontana.
Although Wayne went on to further hits, the Mindbenders also pressed on and probably surprised their former vocalist by being more successful than he was.
It was a cover of a song that had been previously recorded by Patti Labelle and Her Belles a few weeks earlier that gave the Mindbenders their big chance.
