All City: why the Temple Bar based imprint with 50 releases to its name is probably the best record label around.

Plus: reviews of music releases from George Michael (CD of the Week slot for the reissue of “Faith”), Esben & The Witch, Sea Of Bees, Hercules & Love Affair, Seefeel, T.I., David Hopkins, Pat Dam Smyth, Joan As Policewoman and more, plus new movies on the block including Barney’s Version, Biutiful, Hereafter, How Do You Know, The Mechanic and Tangled.

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

The OTR plugs 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 Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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. Getting busy in a BK bathroom.
