Liz Phair’s Early Demos Get Official Release


Three never officially released Liz Phair demo tapes known as Girlysound — the ones that helped land Phair a deal at Matador records to put out 1993's Exile in Guyville — will finally get a proper rollout on October 19. Unfortunately, Girlysound will come packaged with Phair's Funstyle, the not-much-liked album from this summer in which she raps/talks over music. Yet again, Phair is really hammering home the wisdom of a particular TV theme song: You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have, the facts of life Phair. [Pitchfork]
