The Ting Tings

Biography

Named after a Chinese friend whose name sounds like the Mandarin pronunciation of “bandstand,” the Ting Tings — a scrappy, dance-oriented duo consisting of singer/guitarist Katie White and drummer Jules De Martino — formed in the Salford district of Manchester, England in 2006. Prior to forming the group, the pair worked together in 2001 when White was in the all-female punk-pop group TKO and De Martino wrote some songs for them. Later, the pair reunited and with another friend formed the trio Eskimo Kiss, which signed to Mercury Records but disbanded due in part to changing personnel at the label. De Martino and White regrouped, working on their own music and others' at Salford's music commune, the Islington Mill. Quickly signed to the local indie label Switchflicker Records, the Ting Tings released their debut single, “That's Not My Name,” in the spring of 2007. Following the limited-edition, tour-only single “Fruit Machine,” the Ting Tings signed to major label Columbia Records later that year. The flip side of the Switchflicker single, “Great DJ,” was released as the duo's debut Columbia single in March 2008, followed by the reissue of “That's Not My Name” with a new exclusive B-side remix.
