The Ting Tings at QMU Glasgow 24 May 2008

So, I finally got youtube to stop messing around and managed to get the video montage from The Ting Ting’s gig up. I uploaded it to VIMEO as well as YouTube just to try out this place, to be honest I’m not to happy with either site.  Vimeo is a much easier site to use and has some nice features but the playback always stutters during playback.  Youtube drastically degrades the quality of the video, however as many more people use and search youtube, this has to be the place to keep videos, also although the embeding code for both Vimeo and Youtube are below I’m fairly sure you will only be able to see one.

As for the gig itself – it was fantastic, lots of energy and really different and fun sound.  It was short, but as Poppadom commented  “I thought it was a good gig, it was fun though short… but they only have one album so I don’t know what else they could’ve done. Better a show that’s short and good than a longer one with dull fillers”

Also, to answer the question about the support group Modernaire – I only caught the last couple of songs and they didn’t really grab my attention much though, I thought it sounded a bit ‘Cassio Keyboard’ for my taste though I was intrigued by the sudden appearances of a chello – and the two girls vocals sounded good.

  2. Morning,

    We have a current argument going on over at Extreme Listening Mode about whether The Ting Tings are any good or not. We say yes, others say no.

    We were also at the QM for that gig. I thought they were excellent, although i did get screaming drunk which i regretted the following day.

    Feel Free to join in.

    Peace Out Baby!
