Pop Gossip tour finally on after FOUR reschedules

International Teachers of Pop are to tour the UK in August as a final ‘lap of honour’ for their widely acclaimed second album Pop Gossip

The tour has already been rescheduled an incredible FOUR times, and the band are saying it will definitely be their last for a very long time.

They’ve also shared the video for ‘Drive All Night (We Love E.U)’ one of the four tracks on a new digital EP, with first view going to Juno Daily readers.

ITOP singer Leonore Wheatley explains:  “‘Drive All Night (We Love E.U) ’ – tries to encapsulate the glamour of going on tour and how you spend the days. A lot of the time you’re asleep, using up phone data you don’t have, needing a pee , walking aimlessly around a town you don’t know and buying souvenirs to add to that magnet collection you’ve tried to keep going.’

Adrian Flanagan ITOP Synth man adds: “It’s funny actually – I went in a service station on the motorway for the first time in over a year the other day and it brought me out in hives – just walking past the fridges – the cold sarnies , the Ginsters pasties, the pick and mix that’s had a thousand snotty pawed little ankle biters sticking their fingers in  – the Jilly Cooper paperbacks and random country & western CDs. These places are a Mecca for the simple fresh faced minstrel – but for me, it’s like going back to NAM or somewhere – where simply getting home quickly is always determined by the strength of another person’s bladder!!’”

Adrian Flanagan:

About the video, Flanagan said: “With the new promo photos and video for the single we were giving a nod to Heaven 17’s Penthouse & Pavement album – and all them bloody awful modern day yuppies.. but it’s all come true though hasn’t it? Everywhere you look now on the trains – in bars and restaurants it’s people with these portable offices strapped to their noses and ears – 20 something males checking their crypto currency graphs – or talking to 8 mini squares on zoom to people who look like the bleedin’ Manson Family all of whom have these IKEA bookcases behind them to convince you that they aren’t all serial killers but are in-fact – highly qualified academics!!’

“Consumerism is king again, the children of Thatcher’s children are coming home to roost and they are being led by a lying blue tied bukkake haired fop….”

As well as ‘Drive All Night (We Love E.U)’ the full digital EP – available to download here – contains ‘Miss Lollipop (studio recording);, Drive All Night ( Dean Honer remix) and ‘Age of the Train (early version)’.

Pop Gossip remains in stock in both pink vinyl and traditional black vinyl formats through Juno Records.
