Elliott Smith

Roman Candle was Elliott Smith's debut album as a solo artist, even though he was still a singer and guitarist for the band Heatmiser. The album has a raw, homemade sound (see Lo-fi), with Smith playing each instrument and recording it on his 4-track. Kid Tulsa played Snare and cymbal on tracks "No Name #1" and "Kiwi Maddog 20/20". According to the Elliott Smith biography, "Elliott Smith And The Big Nothing", Elliott recorded the album in the basement of the home of then-girlfriend JJ Gonson. The album was never intended for release, however, after Gonson played the album for Cavity Search Records, they immediately requested permission to release it, as-is.
