Francois Peglau is the boyfriend you didn’t know you always wanted. He’s like the anti-christ you were always waiting for. He might be the reincarnation of Aldous Huxley’s and John Whiting’s representation of Father Urbain Grandier, the great fool who seduces a bunch of repressed nuns and town girls into his maniacal, yet unequivocally human grasp. His lyrics in this latest video release for “Everybody Loves Me” — the one he states that closes the cycle to his debut The Imminent Failure of Francois Peglau — slips over our eardrums like some whispered wet dream of C. S. Lewis. Not all unlike The Screwtape Letters or Sor Juana’s life work. Something diabolical brews in sincerity, in this court gesture of a performance around New York City. There’s also something antonymic and ethereal in Francois’ voice and in his absolute mockery of life through song. His obre maestre will be something to behold.
