The Sheffield premiere of the Nerd Disco project from founders/producers & co-writers of The Moonlandingz, Adrian Flanagan & Dean Honer in cahoots with vocalist Leonore Wheatley.
After two successful years of sell out tours, a critically acclaimed album, heavily playlisted singles & incendiary festival appearances across Europe, The Moonlandingz founders and co-songwriters Adrian Flanagan (Eccentronic Research Council) & Dean Honer (All Seeing I) have teamed up with 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 in a cave in Derbyshire (The Devils Arse) by invite from the Lord Mayor of South Yorkshire and misshape pop, JARVIS COCKER.
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.
In the past weeks I.T.O.P. have been wowing crowds at the prestigious Somerset House with another Sheffield outsider Pop Legend, Roisin Murphy and packing out tents at Bluedot Festival at Jodrell Bank. In the coming weeks the group are due to play Green Man Festival and Electric Fields.
With support from special guest TVAM.
