In today’s issue of The Ticket, Brian Boyd speaks to U2′s Bono and The Edge about a load of stuff including those tax arrangements. There’s also interviews with producers Daniel Lanois and Steve Lillywhite and graphic designers Steve Averill and Shaughn McGrath about the making of “No Line On the Horizon”, a chat with band manager Paul McGuinness while Simon Carswell takes an indepth look at the business behind the band.

It’s not all U2 though. Album of the Week comes from Vetiver and there are reviews of new releases from The Prodigy, Saint Etienne, Lonely Dear, the awesome First Aid Kit, The Mighty Stef, NASA and “Floored Memory…Fading Location”, a brilliant compilation of stuff on Fat Cat’s 130701 label.

There’s also a Revolver opinion column from myself about how Touch & Go’s news last week highlights how dismal things are for all sides of the record business, while Lauren Murphy’s music news has items on Dark Room Notes, 4FM, Oxegen and Faith No More

On the movie side of the gaff, the new releases are The Class, Doubt, Five Minutes of Heaven, The Unborn, Franklyn and Break the Bank.
