An interesting article kinda about The Ting Tings...(and some free mp3 goodness!!!)

This is a shameless bid to jump on the bandwagon currently being dragged (all the way to #1) by Salford-based pop-with-indie-cred duo The Ting Tings. They're kinda somewhere between indie-outsider-status and pop-superstar-dom. Probs nearer to the latter, given that they're currently sitting astride the UK singles chart...

Both members - Katie White and Jules De Martino - used to part of the manufactured pop universe. Singer White was in TKO, a band whose split is detailed in this article from The Bolton Evening News, from New Year's Eve 2001:

Trio's K-O spells the end for TKO

FLEDGLING pop group TKO has split -- despite being closer than ever to signing a record deal.

The singing trio called it a day when band member Helen Jones left the band to go solo.

She was the replacement for popular blonde vocalist Katy Malloy -- aka Dizzy -- who left in October 2001.

But rather than find another band member, manager David White said he was "fed up of the constant changes in the band" and decided to rip the group apart.

The remaining two bandmates have gone their separate ways, Katie White, aged 18, is pursuing a solo career and Emma Lally, aged19, is currently working in a shop while she decides on her next move.

Mr White, Katie's father, said he was disappointed the band had split after spending £120,000 on its promotion.

But he added: "The music industry is difficult and 99 per cent of your efforts become wasted.

"Each time a singer left, I had to prepare new posters and publicity. In the end, I thought enough was enough."

TKO -- or Total Knock Out -- formed in Leigh in September 1998 with Katie White, Joanne Leeton, and Emma Lally.

Joanne was the first to leave to be replaced by former Butlins redcoat Katy Malloy.

The band's future appeared to be increasingly safe following gigs at Wembley Arena and the MEN Arena in support of mega-groups such as Steps and Five in front of thousands of people.

But while Katie and Emma became the backbone of the group, they struggled to keep the third member. That led to inconsistency within the band. Mr White said: "Katie is keen to salvage something from this and she is in talks with George Michael's publishers.

"They are very excited about her vocal abilities and have penned some brilliant songs for her."

Katie is in talks with a Manchester promoter about signing a record deal.

According to Mr White, her first gig will be aired to 130 million people in 66 countries -- including Australia and New Zealand -- via satellite television on January 13.

He said: "Katie has benefited hugely from the experience of TKO. She has played more than 300 gigs and her confidence is sky-high.

"She has always been a dedicated musician and the strongest singer of any of the people who have been in the band."

TKO never released a follow-up to their debut single Girlfriend.

FROM START TO FINISH:

September 1998: TKO -- or Total Knock Out -- form with Katie White, Joanne Leeton, and Emma Lally.

February 1999: Begin to play in schools and many under-18 clubs

May 2000: The group film a Channel 4 documentary about being in a band which is shown to schools across the country.

July 2000: Band plays gigs at Olympia in London to a crowd of 10,000 before performing in front of 5,000 at Regents Park.

August 2000: Present a half-hour show on children's channel Trouble. Also appear before Sky Sports' cameras at JJB Stadium during a Wigan Warriors rugby match.

September 2000: TKO make history by releasing their debut single, Girlfriend, on the Internet. Two weeks later they appear on the popular Saturday morning chart show, CD:UK, hosted by former Byker Grove popsters Ant and Dec.

October 2000: Single sells a staggering 5,000 copies -- which would have put them at number 48 in the charts -- but problems as music channels The Box and MTV turn down requests to air the band's video.

November 2000: Joanne sensationally quits the group ahead of its tour with pop sensation Steps. A 21-year-old Butlins redcoat from Bournemouth called Katy Malloy is drafted in as her replacement. Concert goes ahead at Wembley Arena.

December 2000: Manager David White, who bankrolled the group to the tune of more than £130,000, starts looking for a record deal to relieve the cost burden. Band appears before 16,000 people at Manchester's Arena, again with Steps. They immediately fly to Dublin to play alongside boy band Five.

March 2001: Band's bid for pop stardom is boosted by the same talent that helped singer George Michael become a superstar as Jules De-Martino, a member of the former Wham star's song writing team, pens four songs for the Leigh-based musical trio.

April 2001: New songs played for first time at the Bolton Evening News' Pop Fever concert at the Albert Halls.

May 2001: Band locked in talks with huge record label BMG and said to be on the verge of signing a deal worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

July 2001: Deal in the balance so David White unveils plan to release a second single into the shops in October.

October 2001: Despite printing reams of new publicity material and recording the song, the group's hopes are put on hold as Katy Malloy quits.

December 2001: TKO split.

(Article available on the This is Lancashire Archives)


It took them seven years or so, but, via over-crowded early gigs at house parties in Manchester and the requisite internet buzz, they've undoubtedly achieved commercial success.

The fact that this success is on the back of 'That's Not My Name', which actually kinda sucks imho, is irrelevant I guess. They have other better songs - the previous single, 'Great DJ', and the song soundtracking the new iPod ad, 'Shut Up and Let Me Go'. And there's these two songs, from the debut album (out now), We Started Nothing. The first is the one that proves that Katie White can actually sing, as opposed to the yelps of their best-known song, the second is the album's ballad, which isn't as bad a thing as that word usually implies, in that it's still really bouncy, and yes, a bit yelpy. But importantly, they're both good, so download them:
