If her record company’s blanket-bombing advertising campaign hasn’t put you off by now, you may want to know if Lissie’s second album can measure up to 2010’s brilliant and criminally underrated Catching a Tiger.

Fashion: Sartorial stars

A SILVER holographic jumpsuit with matching platforms; a gold lame jacket with lace-up flares and snakeskin platforms; a slinky black frock-coat with 2-ft-long ostrich feathers sprouting from the shoulders. No, it's not an impressionable St Martin's student's first show; these are just some of the outfits that the Oscar-nominated costume designer Sandy Powell created for the glam-fest film Velvet Goldmine, which are currently on display at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton, south London.

How We Met; Mick Fleetwood And Lindsey Buckingham

Guitarist and songwriter Lindsey Buckingham (far right), 50, made his first album in 1973 with his lover, the vocalist Stevie Nicks. In 1975 the duo joined Fleetwood Mac, and helped transform the band from one rooted in raw British blues to the biggest-selling mainstream rock act of the late Seventies. In 1987 he went solo, and has a new album out later this year. He now lives in Los Angeles. Fellow LA resident and drummer Mick Fleetwood, 51, founded Fleetwood Mac in 1967 with Peter Green. After Green quit in 1970, the band went through several, famously stormy incarnations, before breaking up in 1995. The five members of the Seventies line-up were reunited for 1997's 'The Dance' album and tour

Albums: Dust Junkys Done & Dusted (Polydor 557043 2)

Being lippy seems to go with the territory if you're from Manchester: Liam'n'Noel, Mark E. Smith, and now Nicky Lockett, feisty frontman of Dust Junkys, rarely out of your face on their Done & Dusted debut. Lockett used to be Manc rapper MC Tunes, and he's lost none of the essential charm that comes through regarding the world as a threat and money as your god.

Rock: No Jarvis, no Verve, Nobacon

WHAT, wondered Ben Elton, would be "the Jarvis Cocker" at this year's Brit Awards? What would be the defining, heroic moment that matched Cocker's conquering the north face of Michael Jackson's ego in 1996? Two hours later, and our compere still didn't have an answer. Little did he know that "the Jarvis Cocker" had occurred offstage, in the audience; and it was, as he might say, a little bit of politics. While disgruntled Polygram employees lobbed eggs and waved placards outside the Docklands Arena on Monday, inside, Chumbawamba's Danbert Nobacon (he chose that name himself, believe it or not) gave John Prescott an early bath, possibly just because it was something to do while Fleetwood Mac were onstage. In a year when a pop star-ice bucket-MP interface means Noel accepting a cold beer from Tony at Number 10, this sort of disrespect can only be healthy. But it was nowhere near as daring or as fun as Cocker vs Jackson.

Fleetwood Mac confirm rumours of return

It is one of the most successful albums of all time, known for its tuneful yet somewhat anodyne songs. But at the time it was being recorded the atmosphere among the members of Fleetwood Mac was anything but harmonious.

Peter Green / Guildford Folk & Blues Festival

There is no smarter move in the music business than getting out while still at the top. By accident rather than design, Fleetwood Mac's founder Peter Green did just that in 1970 after three years, during which his creative spark took the original line-up of the band out of blues clubs in back-rooms of British pubs and into the concert halls and pop- singles charts of the world. Sadly, rock stardom damaged Green.

Cut and run

The Manic Street Preachers were a band that disturbed: nothing to do with the oasis of comfort and the blur of teen love. The life of Richey Edwards, their presiding spirit, was one lived on the edge. Then, this time last year, he stepped off it and went nobody-knows-where. Emma Forrest reports

feelgood factor: Nicholas Saunders

"I dance to light rock music before I get dressed in the morning as a form of exercise. It has to be old Sixties stuff - Fleetwood Mac. I used to dance around with no clothes on, but I discovered the neighbours could see me and they must have wondered what on earth this naked bloke leaping up and down was doing. After that I started wearing underpants.

Radio VIVA! 963AM The launch

Few men, if they're honest about it, understand women. So one of the great services that can be performed by Viva!, London's new station run by women for women, is to give men some idea of what's going on in women's minds. And the first day and a half of transmission has been an eye-opener.
