Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Mar 17, 2022

It's no secret that Ian, Brent, and Ross love horror films...  so it makes sense that we were all thrilled to have star of several incredible horror works, Alex Essoe, on for this episode.  Brent returns for another round of the director's draft with his dear friend and co-host of "Movie Night", Alex Essoe, to talk about the works of Spike Lee, Steven Soderbergh, John Hughes, Taika Waititi, Paul Verhoeven, and more!!

If you are a casual fan or a film obsessive, you will love to hear these homies (whose only qualifications are playing bass, or in this case being in films) chat about all things film in this very special episode of Film Basics with Bassists That Love Film AFTER a good old fashioned interview.

Be sure to follow Alex at @alexessoe on instagram as well as Brent at @darkoperative to keep up with their film curations, some rad music, and much more.  

To hear us get hyper-specific about some of Alex's work and beyond, the extended version of this conversation is available at, OR just download the Patreon ap, search for Rigs of Dad, and you can support creators like me and so many more in the process!  

Ian dropped some new tunes over at The Interesting Times Gang's Bandcamp that you should click.

Ian's band Strangelight is also about to hit the road in the Pacific Northwest, and Kowloon Walled City will be in the Midwest/Atlantic area next month with Rid of Me, and even Ross's band Burial Waves for a couple dates.
