In The Ticket today, Pixie Lott talks world domination, Amiina talk Icelandic, Vincent Cassel talks iconic French gangsters, Damien Dempsey talks brandy, port, fruit, water and nuts and Brian Boyd talks up how Spotify may kill iTunes.

In New Music, there’s love for Django Django, Harlem Shakes, Pocket Promise, Tyondai Braxton, Free Energy and Your Twenties, while Lauren Murphy’s Music News beat has stories on a DEAF fundraiser, David Byrne snarking U2 and the World Fleadh

New flicks to keep you indoors this week are The Taking Of Pelham 123, Land of the Lost, Coco Before Chanel, Soul Power, G-Force and Mad Sad and Bad. There’s also Movie News, DVD reviews, the weekly movie quiz and Donald Clarke musing why some critics hate horror flicks

The Ticket: music, movies and Pixies of every sort.

The OTR noticeboard is now open for business. Plug your gigs, clubs, blogs and church fairs in the space below. Keep the plugs short and snappy and don’t keep plugging the same yoke over and over again – people get the message, y’all. And please, do declare an interest because it’s only polite. OTR reserves the right to delete plugs where he thinks the item is more of a commercial ad than a plug. Etc. Have a smashing weekend.
