Originally this article was to honor Elliott Smith, who’s last interview was with Under the Radar when the indie culture magazine first started. Smith is also pictured in previously unpublished photos in the 10th Anniversary issue of Under the Radar! We were inspired to do a piece on the artist at a later date, in order to fully showcase the inspirational indie publication.
We wanted to go in depth about the Under the Radar 10th Anniversary issue, but they did an outstanding job summarizing the issue online on their website, and Christopher Roberts even wrote 10 Reasons You Should Read Under the Radar’s 10th Anniversary Issue. So we decided to give you a look into the very 1st Issue of Under the Radar (published 2001) side-by-side with the epic 10th Anniversary Issue.
