Streaming live and direct from the Coolsounds & Magick Studios in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, The Born Again Pagans have been touring the Grid since the summer of 2008.
I posed them some questions:here for you their kind answers :)
Do you want me to use your real names?
Madame Amoufhaz and hexx Triskaidekaphobia are our real names.

Where are you from?
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

How long have you been playing music?
On and off, for about 35 years. Funny how time flies.

What instruments do you play?
Mainly guitars, but also percussion, vocal chords and a bit of keyboard.

How did you discover SL?
I downloaded the viewer, logged on and started exploring.

What has influenced you to get your to where you are today musically?
The music itself, the infinite number of universes that lay hidden in a mere six strings, the people that I've met and worked with along the way and the miracles of modern technology (more specifically: the loop machine).

Do you think SL can be a valid showcase for your RL works?
Well, I create my music in RL and stream it into SL. And for now, SL is the only place where I perform.

How would you describe your style?
Definitely improvisational, live and direct with no backing tracks, with strong reggae roots. "Guitars, synths and assorted madness" is a quite accurate description.

Which are the sources of your inspiration?

Do you use other kind of digital promotions?
We have a website at http://bornagainpagans.wordpress.com, a MySpace profile at http://www.myspace.com/thebornagainpagans and were on Twitter (http://twitter.com/bornagainpagans).

Any thing else you would like to add?
Kudos to everyone who's come out to our shows. You all make the grooves happen. Loveyamore.
