"Hand Grenades and Stilettos" was the second single released under license with Crafty Games for a proposed full-length CD, Spycraft - The Soundtrack, that never got off the ground.
Early comments on the imagery "Hand Grenades and Stilettos" invokes include:
- "I feel like I'm travelling in a small car around the high cliffs over the Pacific Ocean, fast and careless."
- "It makes me imagine a secret agent smoothly sliding between crowds dancing on a yacht off the coast of somewhere tropical, then equally smoothly disarming the security system in the cabin below and acquiring the secret files."
- "It has that sultry, tropical nighttime feel to it."
- "I see a sunset in the Caribbean as our hero observes his target; of course his target is an incredibly beautiful woman and this confrontation will only end one way..."
Spycraft - The Soundtrack was to feature music styles inspired by the Bond, Bourne and Mission Impossible movies, Chuck, 24, Alias and more. Spycraft - The Soundtrack is part of the Universe87 catalog (cyberpunk / espionage / post-apoc / modern music) from Bailey Records Composition and Sound Design. Additional Universe87 catalog releases include Autumnal Slumber (Bailey Records, April 1, 2003), Warlands - The Soundtrack (Bailey Records, April 21, 2009) and others.
"Hand Grenades and Stilettos" is composed and arranged by Stratos of Bailey Records Composition and Sound Design - the team that brought you the Origins Award-nominated Universe87 Campaign Setting Soundtrack (Bailey Records, 2005).
"Hand Grenades and Stilettos" was released exclusively on DriveThruRPG, RPGNow.com and WargameVault.com.
