Re: Songs From Quarantine album includes new EC song "Maud Gone Wrong"

I speculated elsewhere - Maybe Maud Gone is a reference to Maud Gonne , 1866 -1953. A fascinating character. English but very involved with the foundation of independent Ireland from the 1900s onwards. British intelligence gave her the nickname 'Maud Gone Mad'. W.B. Yeats supposedly proposed marriag...

Oddly enough Elvis getting a OBE may have been a contributory factor to these recordings happening. He got the medal at a ceremony in London on Feb. 14th. That was two weeks before the UK tour started on Feb. 28th. I gather these ceremonies are scheduled very far in advance. It would have been more ...
