Elliott Smith: Interview Transcript

Neil Mason, unpublished, June 1998

I'D BEEN TO SEE Elliott Smith's first UK show a week earlier, can't recall where, but it was clearly enough to get me back a week later to see his second-ever London show at The Garage. Could well have been upstairs. This interview was conducted before the show. It was early evening, a weekday I think, and we parked up at a table in the corner of a quiet pub close to the venue.
