In The Ticket this week, we talk to La Roux about her fabulous year, Tony Scott sells us his remake of The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three (flick better be good because the original was a smasher), Wallis Bird lets us into her dressingroom to scrutinise her rider, Lisa Hannigan’s Mercury Prize gushing continues and viewers give their reaction to Lars von Trier’s Antichrist.

There’s New Music bunks for Talulah Does The Hula, Clockwork Noise, Fergus & Geronimo, In Valour, Mazes and Untold, and Music News stories on Fight Like Apes and Jape’s troubles at European fests, Arthur’s Day line-up and U2 giving (a wee bit of) their cash away.

CD of the Week comes from Levon Helm and there are also reviews of new releases and reissues from Reverend & The Makers, Joker’s Daughter, Pocket Promise, Joe Pernice, MSTRKRFT, “Tell Me: Ember Beat Vol 1 (1962-64)”, Death, Jonsi & Alex, “Brazilika” and many more.

New flicks in the cinemas round the land this week are reviewed, namely Antichrist, The Proposal, Don’t Look Now and Just Another Love Story. Plus DVD reviews, the weekly movie quiz and movie news (including Irish adds to the forthcoming Toronto Film Festival).

The Ticket: music and movies covered with elan since 2000.

Roll those drums, the OTR community noticeboard is now open for yer plugging. Plug away until you burst but please be polite and declare an interest where appropriate. And keep those plugs short and succinct.
