THIS LAST TITLE ARTIST LABEL

Music: Records

Molotov: Dnde Jugarn Las Ninas? (Universal). Certainly my favourite Spanish language funk-metal album of the year so far, Dnde ... is the best- selling debut from the "most controversial and politically offensive group" in Mexico, or so their record company would have us believe. If you're a gringo without the lingo - and personally, I've no idea what a song called "Qutate Que Ma'sturbas" might be about - Dnde ... sounds like an energetic, furiously fun party record. From the shady flamenco of "Gimme Tha Power" to the flare-flapping lounge- disco of "Cerdo", Molotov are much more than Skunk Anansie with upside- down question marks. Nicholas Barber

A date with Caprice

From celebrities in wet muslin, to pop stars, the Arsenal football team and this year's best of breed, calendar king Laurence Prince is the Pygmalion of pin-ups, says E Jane Dickson. Portrait by Trevor Ray Hart

Prince's charm offensive rebounds

A CAREFULLY crafted PR offensive to endear the Prince to his future subjects, more than a year in the making, has ground to a halt - throwing up embarrassing headlines in the run-up to Charles' 50th birthday celebrations, and even giving rise to rumours of a rift with the Queen.

Rock: The artist still known as a genius

Tell someone you've been to see the Artist Formerly Known As Prince, and their first question is: did he play the hits (ie, the songs he wrote when he was Still Known As Prince)? The answer is that he played far, far more of them than anyone predicted. The last time he visited Wembley Arena, three years ago, his funk jams lasted several days each, and while he did include one or two songs of the non-funky variety, they were all unreleased and unknown. It was not a singalong evening.

Rock: Still prince of pomp performance

THE ARTIST

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.

Richest man's brother branded a liar in case that could expose secrets of Brunei royalty

The brother of the Sultan of Brunei, the world's richest man, crossed swords with two former business associates yesterday at the High Court in London. Kathy Marks says that the case, which revolves around disputed property deals, will lift the veil that shrouds the activities of this obsessively secret royal family.

Rock: Prince of Wails looks forward to the quiet life

For a man who boasted that his life was a long one-night stand, David Coverdale has learnt to be, well, sensitive. He has raunched and rolled with the best of them: first with Deep Purple, now with Whitesnake. But he's 46 and, as he tells Andrew G Marshall, he has suffered, grown up and acquired a more realistic approach to life.

Saturday Stories: A hit on tour, but will we ever learn to love Prince Charles?

Prince Charles attracted praise from a formerly sceptical press for a new warmth and ease, displayed this week on his trip to South Africa. But, asks Jojo Moyes, is this a real change of personality, or a calculated - and dangerous - ploy?

David Byrne Shepherd's Bush Empire, London; LIVE REVIEW

David Byrne is giving us his pyscho stare. He's dressed in a furry pink suit, and his skin is slick with sweat. It looks as if he's had doll's eyes implanted, or glass eyes. He looks half-blind; he looks like an alien. They're probably just contact lenses. You could think they were a cheesy trick. But, like the several costume changes tonight, which amount to a slow strip from fur to shirt to an encore in which he looks mournfully out from a costume of a body flayed of skin, the lenses suggest David Byrne, the cool collector of world music, is no longer in the building. New Age hippy Byrne has been banished, too. He's been replaced by someone resembling the punk Byrne who led Talking Heads when they were the most modern band in America. Almost everyone in the venue is old enough to remember that vanished time, to want a little of it back. As Byrne has just released his best solo album, Feelings, expectations are high. But it's not clear, at first, if Byrne knows in which direction to meet them.

Saudi Prince buys into Cordiant

Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, the Saudi Arabian multi-billionaire, yesterday added to his string of high profile investments by taking a stake of slightly more than 3 per cent in Cordiant, the advertising and marketing group.

Rock: The more calamities, the merrier the Charlatans

It was a very young crowd that threw itself around at the Reading Rivermead on Wednesday, so young that a casual observer might have thought that the band on stage were the newest kids on the Britrock block. It's sometimes hard to believe, then, that the Charlatans have notched up five albums, three of which - even harder to believe - have been number ones. The latest is called Tellin' Stories (Beggars Banquet), and by now they should be able to live up to its name. Over the years since they shuffled onto the Madchester scene, they've seen one member suffer from depression, another leave the band, and Rob Collins, their organist, go to jail, having been caught up in an armed robbery. And then, last year, the jinx peaked: Collins was killed in a car accident.

why are they famous?; prince michael junior

Main Claim: Putative fruit of the loins of the world's most famous man. "I'm in bliss 24 hours a day," says Michael Jackson of the happy event. "He is so loving and strong," coos Debbie Rowe of her, er, husband. "He loves being involved in every aspect of caring for the baby."

Isn't it, ahem, just that little bit early-Nineties?
