Elliott Smith – LA (68)

December 14, 2009

My only previous knowledge of Elliott Smith was Waltz #2, which was so gloriously angsty it became a huge student radio station favourite. Later I was sent the “Figure 8” album, and was blown away, and went on the lookout for his back catalogue. Then, just as I started to get to know his work, the obituaries after his death meant I knew more about the man than I particularly wanted.
