On September 18, 1993, reading from twenty clay tablets generated from the Psychedelic Lounge Cat's gilded computer, and wearing a vintage 1990 nylon red, black and silver leisure suit, standing alone in mid-strip Las Vegas, NV, Mr. Lucky announced:
The Immortal Pantheon: Mancinian, the God of Intrigue... Brubeckian, the God of Intellect... Bacharachian, the God of Heartbreak with the declaration "I love all you littel eras!" Mr. Lucky set forth the parameters of a new, and exciting and different concept in music, verily... an Experience.
What, thou ask? To segue, restylize, and destylize selected popular songs drawn from the repertoire of late Twentieth Century music into a new, individual and unique style, form and format. Presented not as a parody, but as a serious pastiche to be read as cabaret, lounge and dance music.
Why, thou question? Songs made popular within each era have been so stylized that the music becomes obscured by the style.
By inflicting unexpected stylizations on familiar songs and combining eras into medleys, the meaning and melody of each song will be transformed in the ears of the audience into new and exciting music worthy of enthusiastic response.
