Ting Tings - We Started Nothing We Started Nothing
Pop New - LP 28925 Columbia
Factory Sealed 2008 Vinyl. Includes Free MP3 Download Of Entire Album. "The Ting Tings Gave Their Debut Album A Refreshingly Honest Title: “We Started Nothing.” They’re A British Duo — Katie White On Lead Vocals And Guitar And Jules De Martino On Drums, Keyboards And Electronics — That Loves The Perky Pop Impulse Wherever It Has Surfaced Through The Decades. The Songs Don’t Hide Echoes Of Predecessors From Blondie To Nancy Sinatra, Although The Ting Tings Are Clearly Fondest Of The 1980s, When Do-It-Yourself Punk And New Wave Flirted With Dance Music And Bubble Gum. The Ting Tings Cheerfully Bridge Toni Basil, New Order And Tom Tom Club. The Songs Rarely Use More Than Two Chords, And They’re Usually Built On Hand Clap-Ready Drumbeats And Scrappy Guitar Riffs. But They Also Stack Vocal Harmonies And Hooks, Including Cagey Synthesizer Parts That Never Make The Band Sound More Programmed Than Live. In Songs About Breakups And Misguided Affairs, Ms. White Sings With Bright Schoolgirl Sassiness; She Also Chant-Raps A Few Songs In An Exaggerated Down-Market Accent. Yet When The Time Comes For A Harmony Chorale, In Songs Like “Keep Your Head” Or “That’s Not My Name” — The First Single And The Band’s Most Irresistible Song So Far — The Amateur Pose Vanishes. The Ting Tings Are Crafty, Not Naïve, But They Can Fabricate Elation." - Jon Parales, New York Times... more details
