Liz Phair Might Become Relevant Again?

2008_04_liz_phair.jpgJesus, we hope so. We were big fans of Liz Phair, but stood along with the rest of you, jaws agape, eyes widened in horror, as she attempted to remake herself as a teen pop princess. Anyway, she gave Billboard an interview -- she's hawking the 15th anniversary re-issue of Exile In Guyville -- and dropped some hints that her next disc might not be so sucktastic.

I was recording demos all winter, after taking a few years off, which I needed. The demos were all super cheap, and my friends all lent me their time and got involved. I'm going to start recording in mid-April and hopefully bang this puppy out. I have a strong vision that I can't quite articulate yet, but I'm hoping it'll be clear on the album.

And what does the "blowjob queen" say about girl-power nowadays?

I see all these young women on porn sites, all these sorority girls posting pictures of themselves giving blowjobs and thinking that it's empowering, and I feel like they really missed the point.

Well said, Liz.
