    > Not sure. Would love a vinyl release of Mike's score.

    ... hey everyone. i am the music supervisor for the film. :0) I should have come on here earlier to post about this, sorry about that, I guess my excuse is that I've been super busy since we use about 40 songs in the film that I've been wrestling with. but it's a music film so that is a good thing!

    I wanted to let you know that not only did Mike do the awesome score music (with the equally awesome Barrett Jones), but we also include three pearl jam tracks (OK two PJ and one Bad Radio) in the film and Mike appears on camera offering insights too. and in the story, we have three really good PJ moments that we share, and yes you get a young Eddie cameo too. we think you will like...

    regarding a soundtrack, yes I am working on that next. the current idea is to include tracks from artists that are part of Marcos story that we pulled out of Marcos personal collection from live in studio sessions that they did together over the years, perhaps with pieces of Mikes score interspersed too. another idea is to perhaps release some of Mikes score on vinyl. no promises yet since we are just getting started on figuring all of that out, and there's lots of rights that need to be acquired to do it and we are only going to put out an album if it is good - so give us some time, fingers crossed, and thanks for your patience interest and support of this project!

    BIG NEWS & Prize Update!
    Posted by The Glamour & The Squalor (Creator)

    Hello Kickstarter!

    It's been far too long since we last saw each other but we’re here today with BIG NEWS and to announce what we all came together way back in 2013 to accomplish. The film will finally be getting its release on Friday!

    Here’s a link to the official announcement this morning on IndieWire, including our brand new, official trailer! http://www.indiewire.com/article/the-glamour-and-the-squalor-trailer-20160412

    We couldn't be more excited to be putting the film out. Since the premiere in Seattle last June, we've toured the film all over the world and won a ton of really great awards, all in an effort to get to this point - where we have distribution and the masses can finally see this piece of work that we’re all really, really proud of.

    For those of you that pledged to receive the digital download of the film, you'll be getting that in your email later today. Once you've had a chance to watch, we'd love so much if you could share this iTunes purchase link, http://geni.us/GlamourSqualor, on social media and let people know how much you enjoyed the film. We're really counting on you guys to help spread the word so as many people as possible will see ‘The Glamour & The Squalor!’ The film is available for preorder now and will be available to purchase and rent Friday. It would also be great if you could rate the film on iTunes and even write us a great review. That will go a long ways in helping us get momentum with our launch. Thank you!

    For those of you that are waiting for your copy of the DVD, we’re still going to need a little more time before we can deliver that. The DVD comes later in our distributor’s window, but we will be delivering that at the very soonest date were allowed. Thanks so much for remaining patient. We know it’s taken a lot longer to deliver than our original projection, and have learned so much about how looooooong this process takes. In the meantime, send us an email at info@glamoursqualorfilm.com and we'll hook you up with a screener to watch the film, but you just have to promise not to tell anybody ☺

    And finally, we were finally able to secure enough copies of the Charles R. Cross book, ‘Heavier than Heaven,’ and they are being signed by Charles today! For those that pledged at that level, be looking for an email in the next couple days regarding delivery of the book.

    Thanks so much to you all for helping to get us to this place. We literally couldn't have done it without you. We hope you love the film and will help us in sharing it with the world!

    Sincerely,

    The Glamour & The Squalor crew

    Posted by The Glamour & The Squalor (Creator)

We are so happy to announce that the DVD of The Glamour & The Squalor is finally here! Be on the lookout for a separate email from Kickstarter so we can get your up to date shipping details. For anyone else interested in purchasing the DVD, it is also available for preorder at Amazon and will be officially released this Friday, August 4.


    The DVD is Here! 


    Coinciding with the DVD release, we’re also thrilled to announce the film will officially be available to stream via Amazon Prime There were a few leaks of the film to Amazon (imagine that!) but it will be up again for good this Friday, August 4. Please help us in spreading the word! 


    And finally, we have two albums we are releasing as companions to the film: the original score as composed by Mike McCready and the official soundtrack, filled with amazing, exclusive music and interspersed with moments from the film! Both albums will be released on a really great record label and should be available in early September. We’ll be back with more details once we are allowed to share, and can’t wait for you to hear them both!

    Sincerely, 


    The Glamour & The Squalor
