I can’t believe I just found out about this, but I’m over that and am now just super pumped. “Searching for Elliott Smith” is a documentary about the late Smith and the world premiere is next Friday during CMJ. Elliott Smith is one of my favorite people and musicians ever, so anything that even slightly relates to him elates me. Does that use of elation work? Anyway, in the movie there are interviews with Smith’s girlfriend when he died, Jennifer Chiba (some think she murdered him, i think that’s rubbish) and Mary Lou Lord, one of the great singer-songwriters of the 90s, and actually the one who got Slim Moon to sign Elliott to Kill Rock Stars.
