Miss Misery

by Elliott Smith

Websites

Sweet Adeline: A very thorough fan site

Named after a Smith song, the closest thing the artist has to an official web presence is a site kept up by his dedicated listeners.

Smith's Indie Label

Kill Rock Stars released Smith's first three solo records. It also released the posthumous collection New Moon.

A Meeting of Great Minds

In May 2000, the College Music Journal printed a really interesting piece in which Elliott Smith (who received a political philosophy degree from Massachusetts' Hampshire College before pursuing music in Portland) talks with Dean Wilson, a musician and then-graduate student in French literature. The intellectual questions Wilson asks seem to really open Smith up. The artist's answers in this interview are some of the most detailed and coherent that you can find anywhere on the web. Interview begins on page 30.

"Mr. Misery"

An article in Spin magazine written by Liam Gowing and published in December 2004. The piece examines the life and death of Smith with intimate quotes and remembrances from the artist's friends and colleagues as well as in-depth investigation. Article starts on page 81.
