The Ting Tings recorded a cover version of Altered Images' "Happy Birthday" for the children's show Yo Gabba Gabba.
In May 2008, the band performed a live set on the In New Music We Trust stage at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Maidstone, Kent, which was made available by the BBC's online video player application i Player.
The Ting Tings later scrapped the majority of the material from the Berlin sessions against the wishes of their label, with White explaining: "We were in Berlin where there is a great electro scene with Sian Hogan, and so we made songs like that, but quickly realised that everything on the radio was Euro-pop shite.
In conjunction with NME and HMV, the band contributed a demo version of "Great DJ" to a limited-audience, 5,000-copies-only, 10" vinyl release of all the artists on the NME Awards Tour.
The band had minimal success, once sharing the same stage as the bands Steps and Atomic Kitten.
While De Martino was in Manchester, the pair bumped into each other and discovered they had a mutual love of Portishead.
However, due to a change of directors and managers, the management style of the record label caused them to split.
The experience left White and De Martino with a distrust of the music industry.
De Martino relocated to Islington Mill Studios (the Mill) in the Salford, Greater Manchester area.
