All's Phair

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.

I remember defending her against all those cries of "sellout" when the last album was released. Then I listened to it two more times and tossed it in the trash. What a terrible album that was!
