It's been 15 years since Liz Phair's defining moment, the release of her masterful debut album Exile in Guyville. Written as a song-by-song response to the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street, the LP was about promiscuity and self-doubt, and it established Phair as a fearless artist of the highest rank. With bawdy lyrics that made it clear she was a feminist less likely to burn her bra than to tie you to her bed with it, Phair's voice sulked from the stereos of thousands of young women and the album went gold. Today brings the exciting announcement that Exile in Guyville is being reissued on ATO Records.
