Heatmiser's Mic City Sons shows off a different side to Elliott Smith, who carved out a well-respected but too short solo career

Author & Special Guests

Another listener suggestion! This is one is a band both Tim and J are surprised they never got around to on their own. On episode #94 we're checking out the 1996 album Mic City Sons, the last by Heatmiser, after which co-leader Elliott Smith carved out a well-respected if too short solo career. Mic City Sons shows off a different side to Smith, as well as shines the spotlight on his bandmate Neil Gust. We discuss that, why serial killers wouldn't enjoy Elliott Smith, and much more.
