Avatar Name: Linus Radford
RL Perfoming Name: Loomis Lovejoy (kidding!)
Style of Music: Mope Rawk
Short Bio: Linus Radford writes songs that weave indie, shoegaze, psychedelic, mope rock, and
singer/songwriter sensibilities all into one handsome carrying case and then tosses it in the nearest river to see where the stream will take it. Influences include John Lennon, Marc Bolan, Robert Smith, PJ Harvey, Chris Martin (note: one influence per decade).
How long have you been performing in Second Life? Since early May 2007
Favorite places to play: Dear Prudence, Club Therapy, Idlemyth, etc.
Describe a memorable gig: Probably my very first gig on the roof of my old place called Kittyshack (R.I.P.). I was scared silly. But, I’m less scared these days, which is good.
Worst gig: I can’t remember the name of the place, but the venue owner hired seven people for security, and none of them showed up. Neither did the venue owner. So, it was an hour of me and what seemed like fifty griefers all onstage hitting me over the head with cartoon hammers. Charming.
Additional comments: I’m currently recording my fifth full-length studio album, and first solo release. Hopefully, the album will be officially released by March 1st, 2008. Check out my blog at LinusRadford.com for updates if you’re curious.
