Live Lounge The Ting Tings, The Ting Tings

With live music from The Ting Tings in Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Dizzee Rascal recently covered The Ting Tings' number one single That's Not My Name for the Live Lounge. Katie and Jules think the cover was excellent and have talked with Dizzee about possibly working together in the future.
Jo asks them for their reaction to how their audience has grown. Katie said they couldn't believe the scale of people that turn up to see them in comparison to last year.
The Ting Tings have just returned from performing in Europe where they played three gigs in one day and have been booked for nearly every festival going.
Katie and Jules say they are having a brilliant time and although they don't get much time to celebrate, as they're always travelling, it's all exciting and a great learning curve. They've had the opportunity to meet lots of bands, in particular their favourite band The Gossip, who they are covering in the Live Lounge.
Jo asks if they have lost anything during their hectic touring and although Jules is exceptionally organised, (Katie says he has a James Bond style suitcase) they have managed to lose their favourite pairs of jeans, favourite monitor amp and in the excitement of performing to a huge audience at Glastonbury they left their records on the floor of the BBC Introducing stage!
The Ting Tings perform their single Shut Up And Let Me Go and then go on to cover The Gossip's Standing In The Way Of Control.
