    This is a repost from 2009, imported from my old Last.FM profile Traindriver. Some of the issues described in this blog entry has been addressed by Last.FM, thank you!
    One of the nagging problems with Last.fm is the system's inability to determine just which artist you are listening to for sure. What do I mean with that? Well, take Bulldog Breed for instance, there are two bands by that name, one (the original) is a psychedelic band and another (the ursurper) is a band; and to make matters worse, they both released an album by the same name, Made in England, thirty years apart. The only distinction is the record labels: Deram and Final Conflict, the latter is the fund-raising mechanism for the outlawed British terrorist organisation, .

    At the time I wrote this, Bulldog Breed's Swedish-language version artist page, currently features the racist band-version but has the presumably, non-racist 60's band's Made in England album cover art as main picture....
