Nate and I met these boys upstairs at the bottom of the hill in San Francisco (think SF’s version of the Troubadour). When we walked in to their “dressing room” (see: room at top of creaking stairs), they were fist deep into their venue supplied vegetarian dinners and cold veggie platter. As we waited for them to finish, Nate and I scouted potential locations around the venue. We happily stumbled upon a well lit but endearingly dingy concrete and chicken wire walkway that looked like the venue’s top secret exit for bands being chased by swarms of hysterical fans. It was here that the trio set up their battery operated casio keyboard, acoustic guitar and tambourine for this inspired rendition of “Badonkadonkey” from their new album Red Yellow and Blue.

The Ting Tings, Katie White (vocals, guitar and bass drum) and Jules De Martino (vocals, drums, electronics), formed as a two-piece during some house parties at Manchester’s Islington Mill, an underground artist collective featuring all manner of creative talent (visual and musical). Their career has taken off with a 2007 appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, bring voted the #3 “Top 10 to Watch in 2008” by the BBC, and just this month with an iPod + iTunes commercial featuring “Shut Up and Let Me Go”.


Called the “most exciting new band in the country” by NME, the Ting Tings are making their way to America this spring with a digital release of their debut record, We Started Nothing, releasing on 20 May 2008. Earning kudos for their charged live performance at SXSW this March from both the New York Times and the New York Post, the British band return to the U.S. and Canada in June for a batch of live shows in major cities. Full tour dates appear below.


In the meantime, PopMatters is proud to present the exclusive debut of the Ting Tings performing “Great DJ” live at the Islington Mill recently in Manchester.
