The Glamor & the Squalor (Original Motion Picture Score)
Label: Lakeshore Records
Release type: Vinyl LP Pressing
The Glamour & The Squalor tells the story of radio DJ Marco Collins, whose passionate support for indie bands on Seattle's alt-rock station 107.7 The End helped bring Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Garbage, Weezer, and others to international renown throughout the early and mid 1990s. Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready composed the film's original score. "The score for The Glamour & The Squalor is dedicated to [my wife] Ashley, who helps me with my musical vision, and who is my muse," says McCready, "and to my kids who inspire me daily. Thanks to Marco for allowing me to help his story, and to the entire cast and crew of The Glamour & The Squalor film. This is also in remembrance of all the musicians from Seattle who aren't here anymore, but their music remains."
