Handling of multiple artists with the same name

We really need a way to distinguish artists that share the same name.


I thought about adding a new column in tblartists: UniqueArtistName.

This field could be used similar to discogs names with a unique number in brackets after the artist's name.


Another way would be to use ArtistName similar as discogs names, and then leave out the brackets-part in views and when sending information to last.fm.

...Stumpled now upon the same problem.
How to solve it right now? Putting some extension after artist name? Like "Artist (1989)" or "Artist (Italy)"?

 

A workaround is to use Discogs style, Artist (1), Artist (2) etc. Artist (Country) can of course also be used, it's up to the end-user I think
