You have undoubtedly all read the latest issue of Music Matters Magazine by now, more specifically the blood chilling tale of what happened to brother Winston Ackland when he played at Erie Isle. One would expect anyone in his right mind to stay as far away from that creepy place as possible!

But hey. Even us Born Again Pagans have to work, if we don’t wanna be homeless. Apart from that, it’s been a long time since we were in our right minds with all the assorted madness bouncing around us. We won’t even start to tell you about all the drugs. But anyways, when we were asked to come and do a show at Erie Isle on Thursday, April 2, at 11 AM SLT, we gratefully accepted the opportunity.

To cut a long story short: we would greatly appreciate it if any of you could come and give us some moral support. Apart from that, it might very well be the last chance you get to see us alive.

You can grab a taxi to Erie Isle here.

….. and we celebrated that joyous day at the lovely Cairo Theatre. Yes. We know you accidentally missed it. But hey. Shit happens. Still, not to worry: the first live CD of The Born Again Pagans will be released next Full Moon, in April. Imagine that: being able to put on those headphones, crank up the volume and be at a Born Again Pagans show, anytime you feel like it!

Below the fold, to kindle your appetite just a bit, the front cover.

Those who can proudly wear the ‘Born Again Pagan’ tag in-world will of course be the first to receive a copy of this already legendary album. Just so you know. Be there or be square! Rawrrrrrr! Haha!

True, the stringed Ladies work hard. But there’s more to it than just working hard – therefore below the fold, an impression of the Coolsounds & Magick Studios.

We stumbled into talk about loop machines on the Internetz and man, did it work up an appetite! So it didn’t take long before we found ourselves in the Coolsounds & Magick Studios where we recorded this carefree little ditty. You will no doubt notice that it features the Lady La Douze – hence, of course, the title.

Live and direct on our MySpace profile, dear reader. Enjoy!

It needs to be said: we somehow get invited to roll out the grooves in the loveliest of venues. No ghastly shopping malls for The Born Again Pagans!

Yesterday, for instance, we took the stage in Bookstacks, an island that is devoted to poetry and literature. And in spite of the unavoidable Daylight Saving Time misery that will undoubtedly cause lots of people to log in an hour late since the US of A have decided to go into DST-mode three weeks before the rest of the world, there was a nice audience. Both in numbers and in spirit.

Which just goes to show that not all the inhabitants of the Metaverse only crave cover versions of tunes that have hit the charts in days gone by. And that, dear reader, is a comforting thought!

The loopmachine is one of the miracles of modern day technology. It records musical phrases and repeats them as long as one wants, also (and that makes it ever so kewl) in layers. With a loopmachine, it’s a piece of cake to create a tune with a couple of instruments without using backing tracks.

Spring is coming outside my window, but it’s coming real slow. So what can one better do than have some coffee with a friend while listening to the recording of the jams we had on a rezday party, earlier this week? It’s great to hear our music from an audience point of view: firstly because the sound is remarkably good and secondly because we get to hear everything that we can and should improve, haha. And with the live CD coming up in March, it was about time we started listening to all the recordings we’ve made so far.

Man, we just love those Sundays! And today is a special one since we’ve been asked to jam da grooves for half an hour at Memphis Pavillion, where the people have planned a huge festival in honour of Circe Broom (the sweet lady who keeps the place running with great music all the time).

Life is so good at the Lunatic Fringe. Rawrrrrr.
