RECORDS / New Releases: Massive Attack - Protection (Virgin, CD/ LP/tape)

Their first album, 1991's sumptuous Blue Lines, opened up a whole new imaginative world for British dance music, in the same way that De La Soul's Three Feet High And Rising did in America. It's lasted better too, perhaps because fewer others have dared to follow in Massive Attack's footsteps.

FASHION / Secondhand seditionaries: High fashion rediscovered punk this year, but for some devotees the original designs never lost their appeal. Simon Dudfield reports on the collectors who will pay a fortune for secondhand clothes

THIS YEAR'S spring/summer collections have been spiked with designer punk: lethal heels, short skirts, safety-pins, chains and leather. But these clothes are far removed from the Seventies' originals: the nose rings are fake, the slashed fabrics perfectly stitched at the seams, the leather gleaming, supple and very, very expensive.

Briton takes command of peace troops in Bosnia

LIEUTENANT-GENERAL Sir Michael Rose took command of all UN troops in Bosnia-Herzegovina yesterday amid speculation that the UN might withdraw in the spring. But, speaking in Sarajevo, General Rose, 53, said 'that's not part of our intentions at the moment'.

The hard sell in Hollywood: In one room: Hollywood's sharpest marketers, and a bad idea for an imaginary film - an eco-drama that looks like box-office poison. How to sell it? As Jurassic Park's hype reaches a crescendo, here are the new auteurs at work

GLOOM AND DESPAIR have settled over Hollywood. The industry's mood is one of 'self-loathing', according to a highly placed studio executive, who recently told the New York Times that the films being produced were 'a lot of formulaic, by-the-numbers, cliche-ridden, high-concept garbage'. Still, the creative fires burn on - though not on soundstages or in story conferences. In 1993, Hollywood's true auteurs are its marketing men.

ROCK / Sex bomb in LP shock

IN THE midst of all the mucky book brouhaha, you could be forgiven for not noticing that Madonna has a new album out. It would be a shame if Erotica (Maverick/Sire) got trampled in the multi-media marketing stampede, because it is a very fine piece of work, probably her best. If you forget the Dick Tracy spin- off Breathless, a clear case of Beatty-ing around the bush, it is still possible to plot her five albums of new songs as a rising curve.
