Liz Phair - Exile in Guyville (w/ Jay Newbury)

The Album Concept Hour

Right now (in 2022) we're seeing a huge movement of female and non-binary empowerment in music. They are playing ever instrument, every role, in every genre and they are killing it. In spite of endless attacks on their rights, they continue to forge new paths and keep the good fight going. But in 1993, there was an earlier wave of badass feminist music being made. Between the likes of Alanis Morrisette, The Breeders, Bikini Kill, and Hole, you had women all over the music scene demanding a place at the table. And they got it. One of the great female songwriters of the time was Liz Phair, and her 18 track epic "Exile In Guyville" made her a household name for a long time. Its songs served as a track by track response to The Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main St", but they very much have a sound of their own. If you like anything indie or lo-fi, you're not going to want to miss this one.  Episode Links: "Never Said" Music Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1tMfKl5b8M Dave's Punk Playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7iXjak3EGzmX4wWBDggxcI?si=qRiBGbipRg6BIpWUpBoE5g&utm_source=copy-link OUR DISCORD:  https://discord.gg/2stA2P7pTC          Flyover State Hotline - 1 608 HIT-NERD   (608-448-6373) FLYOVER STATE TV YOUTUBE live every other Tues. at 730pm CST: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClxl2ivi_eO93zL49QZDuqA (for local listeners) Under the Covers is Wednesday mornings from 6 to 8am on 91.7 WSUM FM, 92.5 WISY FM Sunday afternoons 1-3pm EVERYTHING ELSE: https://linktr.ee/FlyoverStatePark--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/albumconcepthour/support

Lilith Fair (Lucinda Williams, Sinéad O’Connor, Liz Phair)

Album Nerds

In the early 90s, the idea of a female only music festival didn’t seem plausible. Sarah McLachlan and friends helped to make it a reality with the Lilith Fair tour. Running for three years in the late 90s, plus a revival in 2010, the festival helped to bring women-led music to a larger audience. Today […]

E is for Liz Phair's 'Exile in Guyville'

Society Owes Me A Gen-X Podcast: The 90s

It's 1993.  Ms Phair bursts on to the world music scene, takes on all the Chicago rock scene guys - and The Rolling Stones! - and plays them at their own game.  Liz rocks! Liz rolls! Liz laughs in the face of girls being just groupie good time objects for the male bands, and decided instead to pick up a guitar herself and challenge all the Chicago scene stereotypes with her own album.  This is that album.  We talk everything about the audacious lady and how this album's success was as big a shock to her as it was to everyone else.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/societyowesmeagenxpodcast/message

Liz Phair's "Exile in Guyville"

Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums

Back in 1993, a young songwriter named Liz Phair came out of nowhere to drop one of the Nineties’ defining albums: Exile in Guyville. Phair came from the Chicago indie rock scene, but she had a new story to tell: the secret life of an ordinary twentysomething woman, grappling with love and sex and insecurity. The album didn’t get any mainstream airplay, but it changed the stakes for indie rock, musically, culturally, and emotionally. On this episode of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums, Contributing Editor Rob Sheffield tells the full story of the album, with help from Liz Phair herself, who breaks down how she channeled the "disillusionment and fury" of her twenties into an era-defining musical statement. Exile producer Brad Wood also weighs in with his memories of the time period, and Mannequin Pussy’s Marisa Dabice discusses how Phair’s “fearlessness” helped free up her own writing.New episodes of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums release every Tuesday, only on Amazon Music.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
