If culture moves in a twenty-year cycle, the current Nineties revival is right on schedule. Mini floral print dresses abound, as do grunge- and riot-grrrl-influenced bands. Obscure pop culture nuggets like the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan scandal are now the subject of adoration. People who grew up in the Nineties are feeling a collective pang of nostalgia watching their youth replayed in tastes of the currently young, and they often don't seem too happy about it.

One person who isn't complaining, though, is Jill Sobule. The L.A.-based singer-songwriter wasn't just there the first time around: She performed "Supermodel," the signature track of beloved 1995 movie Clueless, and in doing so became a quintessential part of the Nineties canon. The film turns twenty this year, and in celebration the soundtrack is getting a vinyl reissue on April 7: a picture disc printed with main character Cher Horowitz's signature black-and-yellow plaid. Sobule couldn't be happier about it.More »
