Liz Phair (hot) and Exile in Guyville


So Liz Phair released a celebratory 15 year anny reissue of her debut Exile In Guyville last month. I've yet to pick up my copy, but it's on the short list of to-gets. From the sounds of things, there are only 4 extra bonus tracks, but the real kicker is the documentary style DVD that it's packed with, featuring a string of interviews done by Liz herself.

The album (originally on Matador) is being reissued by ATO Records (Dave Matthews' label, cough cough).

The rest of Liz's output may have never lived up to her magnificent debut. Perhaps she's been a little hit-and-miss over the years (critics may say more "miss"). But she gets a pass here on EC, due to hotness (points also awarded for being from Chicago). And Exile is most definitely one of our favorite records of the past 20 years.

Appears she's got 3 more East coast dates in which she'll be performing Exile live, sadly none of which I'll be able to attend. Here's a nicely done vid by taylortsides from YouTube, Phair live at the Hiro Ballroom in New York last month, doing "Divorce Song"...



The original video for "Stratford-On-Guy"...



Not from Exile, but from the follow-up record Whip-Smart, performing on David Letterman in 1995 the single "Supernova" (funny little ode to vinyl by Dave)...




Finally, one must have...

Rawkinly cool dude Jason Narducy, who has played bass for RP's live band in recent years and will be on board for the Boston Spaceships tour this fall (kick-ass!!), played bass and added vocals for some of LP's promotional performances back in 2003.

I hate to go against the people that EC support, but I have no love for the scientologist. A shame too, because she is really good at what she does.
