International Teachers of Pop have shared another taste of their forthcoming second LP, Pop Gossip, the single ‘Flood The Club’.
The group are donating the proceeds from sales of the new track to much-loved independent venue The Trades Club in Hebden Bridge, to help it through the coronavirus crisis
Says the band’s Adrian Flanagan, also a member of The Moonlanding and the Eccentronic Research Council: “The Trades Club have been great supporters of ITOP and all my projects for years so we wanted to try help them during this time where independent grassroots venues are really struggling to keep afloat.
“When you’re touring lots it does become a bit like Groundhog Day. You turn up at a venue, get shoved in a little windowless cubbyhole with a packet of crisps and a bottle of beer for a few hours before some grumpy chump comes and tells you to get on stage and you spring in to action, which is totally the opposite to how you get treated at The Trades Club.
