Liz Phair

Any other fans? This sounds pretty good:


She’s one of my all time heroes. Probably getting the CD version as I’m too poor for the 80 quid LP.

Universal is also reissuing Whip Smart, Space Egg and the Self Titled on vinyl in April. I’ve got UK original Space Egg and Guyville so i will probably grab the other two.

Also like to use this as an opportunity to say Somebody’s Miracle is actually pretty great

Nice. Got into Exile… last year on the recommendations of that maligned “best albums by women” list that someone posted - it’s a corker. Especially love Stratford-on-Guy and Strange Loop (that outro!)

I highly recommend WhiteChocolateSpaceEgg as well. And if you’re not put off by a total 180 career change, her later stuff.

Yeah I read a bit about her later career - didn’t she go full pop? Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing

Yeah. The self/titled gave her a chart hit and her last album is basically a total piss take (but with some actually great tunes if you buy into it).

Some of it sucks, some of it great. There’s something oddly charming about album with Why Can’t I? on it also having tracks like H.W.C (Hot White Cum).

I know her only from Pansy Division’s cover of Flower. What songs would you recommend on YouTube this morning to get a good flavour of her?

Typical sheltered Surrey boy - I didn’t even know cum came in different colours or temperatures and there was a need to differentiate!

I first knew her because of Pansy Division.
