The makers of the forthcoming documentary “All For The Best: Songs of Mark Mulcahy and Miracle Legion” this week posted an eight-minute “snippet” of the nearly finished film online, a two-years-in-the-works project that includes interviews, vintage Miracle Legion footage and performances from the 2009 benefit concert in support of the Ciao My Shining Star tribute album, which benefited the band’s frontman, Mark Mulcahy.
Filmmakers JL Sonic and EM Schrader report on Facebook that they are adding “final touches” to the 112-minute documentary, although a release date hasn’t yet been set.
Formed in 1984 in New Haven, Conn., Miracle Legion released three albums and several EPs throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, garnering comparisons early on to R.E.M.’s southern jangle. In the mid-’90s, Mulcahy was approached to contribute music to Nickelodeon’s “The Adventures of Pete & Pete,” which led him to create the band Polaris. He released one more Miracle Legion album in 1996, and has recorded as a solo artist since then.
