Hello Kickstarter! It's been a while since you've heard from us, but
we've continued to plug away with our little film that could and have
some exciting announcements.
The Glamour & The Squalor official soundtrack is out today!
The soundtrack features rare radio performances from Marco’s show by
some of the biggest bands of the 1990’s, along with dialogue from the
film and other handpicked tunes. Included on the soundtrack are cuts by
Garbage, Sebadoh, No Doubt, Death Cab for Cutie, Mudhoney, and others.
In anticipation of the release, we premiered two exclusive tracks which
you can listen to below.
SPIN: Garbage, "Only Happy When It Rains" (acoustic performance) POP MATTERS: Mudhoney, "What To Do With The Neutral" (live)
The original score by Mike McCready was released in September and available digitally or on CD. The film is available on iTunes, Amazon or direct from us at glamoursqualorfilm.com. The DVD is available here.
just a heads up. if you want the CD for the Glamour and The Squalor soundtrack (various artists) and / or the Score by Mike McCready, make sure you get them SOON. I think this will be the only physical pressing of these CDs by the label so when they are gone, they are gone. you can find them all here (along with the movie too if you so desire): http://www.glamoursqualorfilm.com/
(vinyl format is still TBD, fingers crossed)
Please Lakeshore Records. Vinyl format on Mike's score.
yes we all want vinyl. but I don't want this point to get lost, either:

Working on it.
We wanted to share that Marco was recently diagnosed with Stage 2C Seminoma Testicular cancer. When Marco underwent surgery it was discovered that his cancer had spread to his abdominal aorta and kidneys.
The good news is that he has a kick ass Oncologist who is optimistic that he can beat this. However, he has a rough road ahead. Marco is beginning his 2nd of 4 intense rounds of chemotherapy and is unable to work for the next several months. Chemo has taken a toll on him and his immune system is fragile. He spent 4 days in the hospital due to an infection and was near sepsis.
Marco is a survivor. He fought through a decades long battle with addiction and has now been clean and sober for nearly 2 years. He'sback on air at KEXP where he is still championing bands, has exciting creative projects in the works and just before his diagnosis, he was offered a full-time job at a non-profit he truly believes in. Just as life was showering Marco with abundance, he must now put everything on hold. However, Marco has a positive attitude and is determined to beat cancer. Thanks to Obamacare, Marco has insurance but the financial burden of trying to cover his basic necessities while undergoing chemo is overwhelming.
We are setting a modest Gofundme goal at $15,000 to cover out of pocket medical expenses, transportation and basic necessities for the next 6 months while he can’t work. Knowing that his medical bills and essentials are covered will allow him to focus on healing.
Please Join Team Marco and let's surround him with the love and support he needs to overcome this challenge.
