Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Aug 10, 2021

Ross and Ian are joined by returning guest Brent Eyestone of Dark Operative Records to pick the absolute best films from the best directors in the first ever Directors Draft. 

For Round One, we look at the works of James Cameron, Doug Liman, Ben Affleck, Sidney Lumet, Tony Scott, Richard Donner, Shane Black, Paul Thomas Anderson, Sam Mendes, and Joe Dante.  Picking the best of the best from Gremlins, to True Romance, to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and beyond.

Brent Eyestone is a guy that has worn so many hats in the music industry, he singlehandedly might be keeping Lids in business.  He is the label head of Dark Operative (Powertrip, Caspian, Burial Waves, This Will Destroy You), you may be familiar with his catalogue at Magic Bullet Records, his music in Bleach Everything, Highness, and so so 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.
