LCD Soundsystem: James Murphy on LCD Soundsystem’s new – and final – album, This is Happening, which brings the curtain down on a decade of disco-punk

Lebanon: Samuel Maoz talks about his award-winning film shot mainly inside an Israeli tank which takes a long hard look at Israel’s actions in the area in 1982. Also, Irish Times security analyst Tom Clonan, who served with the UN and spent much of the 1996 Israeli-Lebanese conflict inside a tank, offers his own take on the movie.

Pop Corner: Pop muzik from New York, London, Paris, Munich with the dashing Ailbhe Malone

Plus: new music releases reviewed from Villagers (CD of the Week slot for “Becoming A Jackal”), Thee Oh Sees, Holy Fuck, Tracey Thorn, Our Little Secrets, Phosphorescent, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, Sandi Thom, RJD2 and others, and reviews of new flicks in the cinemas including Eyes Wide Open, Lebanon, Robin Hood, American: The Bill Hicks Story, Vincere and No Greater Love.

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

The OTR plugathon is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember to 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. Events with a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot.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. It’s Foals Friday.
