Elliott Smith - Roman Candle

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 four-track recorder.

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 and Heatmiser manager J.J.


The album was never intended for release, as Smith only expected to get a deal for a seven-inch record, however, after Gonson played the album for Cavity Search Records, they immediately requested permission to release it in its entirety.

Smith at first hesitated, and then allowed permission.
