Heatmiser Mic City Sons
The album is divided between songs written and sung by Smith and those of guitarist and co-lead vocalist Neil Gust. It is Gary Byrd Soul Travelin The GBE solid Heatmiser Mic City Sons of songs with intriguing melodies and beautiful lyrics.
However, while trite and expected, Smith's songs occupy the better half of the album. Beginning with "Get Lucky," we have the now all-to-familiar voice of Elliott Smith, whose lyrical genius and ear for melody is surely missed. It seems clear why he would develop musically on his own, as he had so much creativity and craftiness that he needed to spread Heatmiser Mic City Sons wings and leave the confines of band members with whom he shared creative control.
Every individual in the band had identities that were bound up with some sense of injuries, of not fitting in or whatever. I didn't really understand myself really well, I drank pretty heavily.
Heatmiser Mic City Sons Elliott was increasingly unhappy with the rock thing, and I think that I became emblematic of everything that was bad about that for him.
At the time, it was hard to sort through it all. It's the kind of things [that], maybe if these issues came up when people are in their 30s or 40s and have some better communication skills, wouldn't be so hard to process.
There's a song called "See You Later" on [the album] I remember hearing that song for the first time and telling Elliott, 'This song's going to buy you a house.
Neil's stuff on that last record was really strong. I hope that it doesn't sound dated. We loved it when it was done. We worked on it until we could say that we loved it. Elliott came to our show in LA at Various Thunderdome Troubadour and offered to record us at the studio he was putting together for himself in the Valley. We showed up, tracked the basics for 2 songs in one day, then Jim [Talstra] and John [Moen] packed up and headed back to Portland.
I stayed for what I thought was going to be a couple days of overdubs. Instead, I was there for 2 weeks trying to finish one song. This recording session was the last time I Heatmiser Mic City Sons him. I was being a total actor, acting out a role I didn't even like. I couldn't come out and show where I was coming from. I was always disguised in this loud rock band. You didn't have to turn all these songs you wrote into these loud Why aren't there more people like me coming to our shows?
Well, it's because I'm not even playing the kind of music that I really like. I had this visceral response, which I've only had with a few bands. I was impressed by every single The Time Box Come On Up. Elliott was clearly an uber-talented songwriter, Neil [Gust] was clearly an almost-as-talented songwriter, and they both had terrific singing voices and were really gifted guitar players.
The drummer [Tony Les Baxter Bugaloo In Brazil was excellent. Karlheinz Stockhausen Les Percussions De Strasbourg Musik Im Bauch was not a slacker in Heatmiser.
Neil and Elliott had very different guitar skills that complemented each other beautifully. In fact, when I met them, I would say that Neil was the more accomplished of the two. But Elliott had a natural aptitude that was unique. He could hear music and make it come out of his fingers in a way that most guitar players can't.
