In The (Chris de Burgh-free) Ticket this week, we go bonkers with Dizzee Rascal, look ahead at what’s coming to the cinemas in the months ahead, explore Sheffield one more time with Richard Hawley, query Ian Broudie about the contents of his rider and applaud the Mercury Music Prize.

New Music ticker-tape parades this week for Mickey Gang, Cold Cave, Nakatomi Towers, Feed the Bears and Pearse McGloughlin, while Music News has the skinny on Culture Night, Oxjam and Matthew Herbert’s “One Pig” album based on “the sounds made during the life cycle of a pig”. Oink!

Album of the Week comes from J Tillman and there are also reviews of releases by Yacht, Jay-Z, David Gray, Taken By Trees, Muse, Prefab Sprout, Tyondai Braxton, Claire Martin, Lumiere, Lisa Hake and many more

It’s a blockbuster week in the cinemas with nine new releases, namely Julie & Julia, The Yellow Bittern, Whiteout, Sorority Row, Fish Tank, High-end Hammer and Thongs, Adventureland, The September Issue and Miss March: Generation Penetration. Also in the film department: movie news and the aul’ weekly quiz.

The Ticket: don’t pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side.

Chrisgate: that “infamous” email is now also in today’s paper. Liveline researchers are rubbing their hands with glee.

The OTR community noticeboard is now open for your plugs and recommendations. Plug and recommend away to your heart’s content, but remember to declare an interest where one should be declared. Please note that plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Please also note that events with a commerical sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Have a lovely weekend.
