The Divine Comedy: having recently batted for The Duckworth Lewis Method (and composed an alternative national anthem), Neil Hannon talks to Lauren Murphy about the tenth Divine Comedy album.

Cannes: our man in Cannes Donald Clarke on the ten things you always wanted to know about this great annual film beano in the south of France, but were too afraid to ask.

Neil Finn: it’s the week of the Neils in The Ticket as Tony Clayton-Lea talks to Crowded House’s Neil Finn about going back into the House after some solo forays.

Plus: new music releases reviewed from Keith Jarrett/Charlie Haden (CD of the Week), Band Of Horses, Stornoway, David Holmes, Onra, The Black Keys, Katell Keineg, Simon Fagan, and others, and reviews of new flicks in the cinemas including Streetdance 3D, Bad Lieutenant, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Times, Cop Out and Trafficked.

All this and more in The Ticket, in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugging service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules. Declare an interest where one should be declared. Plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Plugs which plug the same stuff every week will also be deleted – if people ain’t interested by now, you should really get the message. Is it too early to get excited about Primavera next week?

We reserve the right to remove any content at any time from this Community, including without limitation if it violates the Community Standards. We ask that you report content that you in good faith believe violates the above rules by clicking the Flag link next to the offending comment or by filling out this form.
