“may you know the image that the master seeks in paints
may you find favour in the congress of the saints
i wish you rock & roll and the rock of ages too
keep the devil in the hole and the road in front of you”
- from ‘Cats Upon The Roof Tops’
Galen Cassidy Peria, also known as Duke Aeroplane, is a song-finder, wordsmith, filmmaker, student of the cards, histrionic, and excitable drinker. Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he makes a highly-regarded crawfish etouffee, plays piano for his cat, lights candles to St. Jude, and screams at televised baseball, the Duke perennially snowbirds to parts north in the summer months as much of his mail still arrives at various addresses in the greater Burlington area.
