Brief notes on a couple of ongoing Grant Hart projects:
Grant has been writing songs for a future concept album based on Milton's
Paradise Lost. One of the tunes, "What's A Little Angel Doing So
Far From Heaven?" is already a live performance staple. Others are in
various stages of completion. Grant says that he's not writing the material
narrative order; he feels that a more uniformly fresh end product will result
from "connecting the dots" later.
At the behest of music supervisor Marshall Crenshaw, Grant has submitted
a couple of candidate songs (including a title track) for the soundtrack of
Losers Take All, currently in production.
