The sound of in­no­va­tion . . .

“We’re called The Ting Tings sim­ply be­cause I used to work with a girl called Ting-Ting,” says singer Katie White (be­low right). “I thought it was a fan­tas­tic name, but it was only way af­ter that I dis­cov­ered that it had a lot of dif­fer­ent mean­ings. It has been de­fined as mean­ing ‘an old band­stand’ as well as ‘a short, sharp sound’.

“I’ve also seen some­where that it is ‘the sound of in­no­va­tion’, which I re­ally liked. Ap­par­ently, it’s also the name of a restau­rant as well as a pop­u­lar drink in Ja­maica. And it’s also a ‘mo­torised head tin­gle ther­a­peu­tic scalp mas­sager’, which is kind of cool!”
