They just don't make sexy rocker chicks like they used to. Thank god for Liz Phair. Even if you bought all that crap about her last album, it was still a hell of a lot better than anything else out there. And now that my faves Deborah Harry and Chrissie Hynde are older than my mother, I'm hard-pressed for a gal I can really sink my teeth into. (Sorry, Kelly Clarkson and Hilary Duff just don't do it for me.)
In case you missed it, The Daily News had a terrific profile on Liz in Sunday's paper. Her new album, "Somebody's Miracle," is coming out on Oct. 8 and I can't wait. Her official Web site is put together nicely and allows you to hear a couple new songs (excellent) and see her new video, "Everything to Me." Plus the site has a bunch of old-school Liz on there too, including a (seemingly homemade) video of "Statford-On-Guy" that will really take you back.
I saw Liz in 2003 at Roseland Ballroom and it was my favorite show of the year. Nobody straddles a guitar like my Liz. I missed her summer acoustic gig, but look forward to seeing her in October.
