    Biography

    The Ting Tings are an English indie/electronic band, consisting of two members: Jules De Martino (drums, vocals) and Katie White (vocals, guitar, bass drum). They formed in 2006 while based at Islington Mill, Salford.

    Katie White first appeared, as a teenager, in girl group TKO - short for Total Knock Out. The band, consisted of Katie and two friends. TKO supported acts like Steps and Five but never signed a record deal or released a record.

    Jules De Martino started out in a teenage band called Babakoto, and released a single called "Just To Get By" in 1987. After Babakoto split up De Martino was singer in an indie rock group "Mojo Pin". Mojo Pin released two singles, "You" in 1995 and "My Imagination" in 1996.

    Their first single That's Not My Name was released on local label Switchflicker, and together with their second single Fruit Machine were on heavy rotation in British radio (amongst others BBC 6 Music, played regularly by many DJs including a session for Steve Lamacq), are considered Indie music hits. Fruit Machine was a limited-edition, 500-only seven-inch single on Legendre Starkie Records, which was only available at the group's gigs at Islington Mill in Salford, Eleckrowerkz in Islington, West Germany in Berlin and at Glasslands in Brooklyn, New York City.

    They have released four singles on their current label Columbia Records UK, including the single That's Not My Name which charted straight at Number 1 in the UK Singles Chart on 18 May 2008. The album We Started Nothing was released on 19 May 2008 and also charted at Number 1 in the UK.

      This songs seems to receive either really good comments or really bad comments. I liked the verses, but it kinda weaked at the chorus. I think the best part of the song is the beat (really strong and "dancy").

      The background part of that. The part in bold is hard to hear, but it's there.

      Started in my head, now it's in my mind
      Call it, reach it, get some words and get some timin'
      Though I realize, I cannot emphasize
      Sittin' round with just a promise, nothing binding
      Whatever, can't you see that it's so desperately
      Standing joker like a kid who's standin' on the line
      Instead I sit alone, the sound is monotone
      I gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feelin
