We are 'The Real' Maypole

You are listening to the original Maypole from 1969-2007 Our album on Colossus has become a valuable collector record selling in the hundreds of dollars. We have been bootlegged, Had our names and credits omitted from our work, had our songs mutilated by perverse so called sound engineers. The new insult is that four count 'em, four other bands from four countries, have stolen our name!!!! One from Sweden, Holland, Poland and The US. Incredible!!! We have been making records since 1970. These guys started in the late 90's and in the last years. Now supposedly most people can read Duh? OK a little, but with the age of the internet, and search engines, you would think, that they would have tried to research the name even a little bit. And what did they think when they came across all our buzz,publicity and whatnot? That we must be tired of our name by now and they should just keep on using it, no matter what? What the hell is going on here. Never in all my years have I ever heard of such shit. So please folks, for the record, let's keep this straight.
