When she was she was thirty-seven, the age most people think it's about time to grow up and settle down, Amy Rigby did the opposite and released her first solo record Diary Of A Mod Housewife. Diary was a concept album inspired by years of juggling artistic dreams, day jobs and relationships with the added challenge of motherhood. It was an early midlife battle cry complete with manifesto that ended notreadyto give inyet.

Diary Of A Mod Housewife combined real life lyrics and transcendent melodies with a passionate music fan's collection of pop, rock and country influences. It was a critical smash and commercial success; voted #8 album in the 1996 Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll and landed Rigby on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, noncommercial and college radio and in every major magazine and newspaper in the US. This November, twenty years after its original release, Diary Of A Mod Housewife will be available on vinyl for the first time, and Amy is touring the US and UK to revisit the classics and play new songs from her upcoming solo album due out next year. In the UK she'll be joined by her husband Wreckless Eric on bass and guitar.
