Re: Mystery songs on ASCAP site

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 propo...

At about 58 minutes into Steve Nieve's recent show on Facebook, with Elvis guesting, Muriel mentions that Sebastian Krys is watching. It prompts Elvis to drop some interesting hints about what seems to be ongoing sessions involving the Look Now producer. I imagine it's some kind of internet link up ...

Re: New song "No Flag" released June 5, 2020

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 ...
