Philip Jamieson of Caspian and Dreamtigers RETURNS for one of the nerdiest episodes to date. We talk about all the nerdy gear that goes into some Caspian riffs, their upcoming vengeance tour, and most fascinatingly: how Caspian goes about sequencing their albums. Why is that last one so crucial? Because we are talking in depth about some nerdy comic book characters in film. Not necessarily the best comic book films, but the best representation of comic book characters in film.
As a bassist, Phil has proven himself to be VERY qualified to talk about film. But as part of an instrumental band, he doesn't have too much to say about comics... This means that he is giving Ian and Ross the task of fitting their choices into HIS sequencing demands. Nerdy enough for you? All of this makes Phil an incredibly welcome addition to the cast on this episode! We talk X-men, Batman, Superman, Scott Pilgrim, and so much more.
If you are a casual fan or a film obsessive, you will love to hear these dudes (whose only qualifications are playing bass) 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 keep up with all things Philip via @caspianofficial @dreamtigersmusic and his own film podcast @themovieloftpodcast on instagram and be sure to check out Caspian as they embark on some long-overdue tour dates.
To hear us get hyper-specific about gear, take a deep dive into unlocking some Chase Bliss Audio stuff, go DEEP in Phil's analysis of the new "The Batman" film, and hear what we would LOVE to see Matt Reeves further explore in this franchise, the extended version of this conversation is available at www.patreon.com/rigsofdad, 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.
