There are several artists/bands using this name:
1: Tin Tin was an Australian pop/rock band. The band was formed in 1966 by Steve Groves and Steve Kipner, who named the band after the popular cartoon character Tintin. Through a friendship with Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees, who would later produce both of their singles and both of their albums, the duo was signed to a one-album contract with music producer Robert Stigwood's organization. Maurice produced their 1969 debut album and played on about half the tracks, which bore a marked resemblance to the tight harmonies of the Bee Gees. The LP sold poorly until the dreamy ballad "Toast and Marmalade for Tea", with lead vocals by Kipner was belatedly released a single in the spring of 1971, hitting #20. The song featured These four lines of nursery rhyme lyrics are repeated five times over eerily distorted piano and synthesizer backing. The song gradually builds in intensity adding acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums, a string orchestra, and finally brass instruments, and is now Tin Tin's best-remembered song.
They released 2 singles - "Kiss Me" (1982) and "Hold It" (1983) before Duffy relaunched himself as a solo artist called Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy in 1984.
