Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Jun 28, 2021

J. Robbins: legendary producer and legendary guitarist for many legendary bands including Jawbox, Burning Airlines, his work with Clutch, and so much more.  J. also happens to be one of the biggest film dorks/bassists around, which makes him more than qualified to be a guest on this show.

We talk about film scores, specifically movies that are incredibly enhanced by the musical contributions.  Everyone from John Williams, to Jerry Goldsmith, to Hans Zimmer, to Johann Johannson, to Clint Mansell, to Trent Reznor, and many many many more.  Films like Jaws, Psycho, Inception, and beyond get discussed in great detail about what makes their scores so important.  

If you are a casual fan or a film obsessive, you will love to hear three 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.
