For some reason, the Ting Tings came to mind the other day. I was a fan of their first album, no-so-knocked out with their second and then…what? Nothing. Silence. It’s like they never existed.
Pigeons and Planes must have been wondering, too, because they’ve included the Ting Tings in a list of 15 former buzz bands that buzz no more.
Like who? Black Kids, The Temper Trap, Tapes n Tapes, The Bravery–you get the idea.
Rock’n’roll is a vicious game.
PS: One thing the article failed to mention is that Sam Endicott and John Hill co-wrote three songs for Shakira, including the single “She Wolf,” which was a number one song in a bunch of countries around the planet. That was just the start of a professional relationship with her. They’re fine.
