TVD Radar and Exclusive First Look: Mike McCready, The Glamour & The Squalor OST vinyl edition in stores 4/16

VIA PRESS RELEASE | The Glamour & The Squalor is the story of Marco Collins, one of America’s last great rock radio DJs and a musical tastemaker that changed our culture.

Before the internet made sourcing new music and rising bands a simple matter of keystrokes, there was the radio DJ. No one epitomized this role like Collins. He was the gatekeeper credited for helping break the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Garbage and countless others. Marco’s story is inspiring and universal. He turned his passion into a significant lifetime of work. And battling serious demons along the way—he’s still standing.

Mike McCready wrote and performed a generous batch of tracks for the score showcasing both his guitar chops and flair for creating striking moods with his use of a variety of instruments including Mellotron, autoharp and strings. Local hero Kim Virant, founder of Lazy Susan, provides vocals on “You’re the Song.” Also appearing on the album are Star Anna and Troy Nelson and MacKenzie Mercer of The Young Evils.

“It was a real treat to be able to write and record the musical score for The Glamour and Squalor—a film about my friend Marco Collins,” McCready tells TVD. “Marco was one of the old school radio programmers who could influence people and help deserving bands in creative ways.”

“Marco pushed and created space for new bands and artists and took chances for the betterment of radio and music. The Glamour and Squalor film shows his greatness, and his struggles—but also his caring, above all. I’m proud to have done the music score to help tell his story. Thanks Marco.”

The film’s music supervisor Kevin Moyer is equally enthusiastic. “I know Mike McCready is a huge vinyl fan, so it only made sense to expand this soundtrack offering onto vinyl also, so that we can all add it to our collections and turntables.”

Lakeshore Records will release a vinyl edition of the original score album for the film The Glamour & The Squalor on April 16. Preorder the vinyl edition here.
