Friday To-Do: Lord T & Eloise

Posted By on Fri, Oct 12, 2007 at 3:46 PM


10 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $5.

“What's more bling than an 18th century aristocrat?” Memphis' Lord T & Eloise want to know. Since last fall, the two have been working their self-dubbed style of aristo-crunk, a genre born of nobility, beats adorned by tympani samples and references to the high life — trust funds, Sperry topsiders, stock market fluctuations. According to their MySpace page, “Lord T and Maurice Eloise XIII are twins born into the richest family in the universe. Lord T was born with white tendril hair, befitting a man of leisure. Maurice Eloise XIII was born with 24-Karat Gold skin, a genetic mutation caused by generations of inbreeding Royal blood from different aristocratic families of the intergalactic realm.” To that end, when he's not running the recording studio Young Avenue Sound in Memphis, Lord T wears a long, flowing powder wig, and Eloise, who used to edit the Chattanooga alt-weekly Outlook, paints his face gold. The beats, crafted by the classically trained MysterE, are usually compelling, and the duo's lyrics are as smart as they are intensely silly. Fans of joke-rock act Tenacious D take notice.
