    Hi everybody! nice to meet you. I founded Hölderlin/Hoelderlin 1970 with my brother Jochen v. Grumbkow. First we tried to work with the German poet Hölderlin's poems, Berthold Brechts lyrics and H.C. Artman's poems, then we decided to keep the Hölderlin-image (crazy artist, hidden in a tower by a cruel king....but he wasn't crazy, he was to wise and revolutionary thinking for his time and therefore politically dangerous ....). We had to change it, when we signed a new contract with SPIEGELEI-Label/Intercord. They wanted us to be an "international act ", so we had to change the German Lyrics and of course the name into English (I think that was the first mistake we made....)....sooooo, Hölderlin became HOELDERLIN. Any questions?

    This is another example of the technical shortcomings of last.fm. It's well known that they can't handle multiple bands with the same name, and now we see that they can't handle multiple names for the same band. I also find the tactic of using a fake artist image with the (quite erroneous) message about bad tags to be condescending and annoying.

    The name Hölderlin was only used for their very first album. They changed to Hoelderlin for their second album and all the others that followed.

    I think last.fm should respect an artist's change of name. Hoelderlin/Hölderlin is not a case of incorrect tagging !

    hoelderlin is the good tag for some albums (like clowns and clouds ).the band called Hölderlin changed his name for Hoeberlin . Have a look to the covers !

    Actually, Hölderlin is the mis-tag. This is the correct tag for the band
