Hear the debut single from a new project by Adrian Flanagan, Dean Honer and Leonore Wheatley

International Teachers of Pop have released a new single. The group, which formed in 2018, contains Adrian Flanagan and Dean Honer (of The Moonlandingz, the Eccentronic Research Council and more) and Leonore Wheatley (of The Soundcarriers and Whyte Horses). You can listen to geekily danceable single ‘Age of the Train’ below.

Discussing the single Wheatley said: “Having been a perpetual passenger, spending hours and money on our beloved rail service, now is the time to recognise and renationalise. Try and dissolve some of the stresses of not managing to escape your city for even just a day without feeling some kind of dread.”

Flanagan added: “The only thing stopping a revolution happening in this country is the fact that the very people it affects the most can’t afford the £120 it costs to go to London on a train from the North. I’m sure revolutions tried to happen but the bloody train was late. It’s a stitch up!”

IToP have appeared live alongside Jarvis Cocker this year, opening for him in a cave known as ‘The Devil’s Arse’ and are playing a number of live shows throughout the remainder of July and August, including a free date at The Social in Soho tomorrow night. For free tickets, click here.
