A-ha Give Away Around A Million In The Name Of Music

    Despite not having a single chart on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1986, it seems the vintage synth-poppers of a-ha still have quite a bit of money to throw around. They’ve ventured into the vast, labyrinthine castle that holds their “Take on Me” money and come out with four $156,000 grants, to be awarded to Norway’s most talented (at least in a-ha’s eyes) musicians. Unfortunately, the selection process has already begun, so if you were planning on moving your band to Norway for a much needed transfusion of cash (I’m looking at you, Ted Leo), you’re out of luck.
