International Teachers of Pop

After two successful years of sell out tours, a critically acclaimed album, heavily playlisted singles & incendiary festival appearance across Europe , The Moonlandingz founders and co-songwriters Adrian Flanagan (Eccentronic research council) & Dean Honer (All Seeing I) have teamed up with (sometimes) The Soundcarriers/ Whyte Horses lead singer, Leonore Wheatley for an exciting new ‘nerd disco’ project called INTERNATIONAL TEACHERS OF POP.

The group formed early in 2018 at a ‘Circuit Bending’ workshop in a school in Valhalla Dale, South Yorkshire where Leonore teaches Music. Their first live appearance was last month when Lord mayor of South Yorkshire and misshape pop, JARVIS COCKER personally invited them to open for him in a Cave in Derbyshire (Peak Cavern aka The Devils Arse). A month later, after an A&R scramble post a triumphant BBC 6 MUSIC radio session for Marc Riley they signed an album and singles deal with Republic of Music to release their music on their own imprint, DESOLATE SPOOLS.

International Teachers of Pop debut single (out mid July) for those in the know is already being muted as being one of the singles of the Summer.

Come hear next years syllabus today and prepare to dance your little socks off.
