The Ting Tings
Hailed from Leigh, Greater Manchester, The Ting Tings are an English pop duo who broke into mainstream in 2004. The duo, formed by vocalist/guitarist/drummer Jules De Martino and guitarist/bassist/vocalist Katie White, started off their music career with a Riot Grrrl trio Total Knock Out, TKO.
Over a period of 5 years, the Ting Tings have garnered a satisfied fan-base and gathered critical acclaim. They have issued four hit songs and an album titled We Started Nothing on their current records label, Columbia Records, UK.
At the tender age of 17, Jules De Martino joined indie band Babakoto and recorded a single called Just To Get By in 1994. When Babakoto split up, De Martino joined Mojo Pin and issued two singles: You and My Imagination in 1995 and 1996 respectively.
Martinos counterpart, Katie White was raised in Leigh, Greater Manchester and met Martino whilst she was at Leeds University. The pair went on to form the Portishead-influenced group with Dear Eskiimo. The trio signed up with Mercury Records. But, later due to the management style of the label and creative differences, the band split.
This earlier experience led De Martino and White to form the Ting Tings. The duo started out performing in private parties in Salford and signed with the label Switchflicker.
