On a more serious note - who was deleted from the artist description? The current band is careful in the opening paragraphs to mention the 60s group of the same name. Bio notes referring to the current band do not even come up until you click on the "Read more" link.
Which is interesting, as Spiritualized is not exactly obscure. So far the 'similar artists' listed seem to refer exclusively to the 60s group. I haven't heard the current band yet, but Spiritualized is a band that is definitely familiar with psychedelia, and whether or not they intentionally took a name that's been used at least a couple of times it's not like they did it to rip somebody off - "I know, let's name ourselves after a totally obscure band and see if we can steal their fans." Um, it was a band best known for covering the Monkees.
There was also a pretty good late 70s power pop band called The Flies but I don't know enough about them to write a bio and edit this one. I was listening to a 60s anthology that included the 60s Flies and my last homepage showed numerous pictures of bands with the same names as those I'd been listening to. Clearly this sort of thing is going to occur on a computerized space that allows anyone to write or edit the bio; the fact that some apparently hiphop guy posing like my godson does is the picture I get for the longhaired hippies I was just listening to is pretty amusing. What I really don't understand is why so many groups would want some of these names.
i think it's inappropriate for the band itself (TheFliesmusic) to completely hijack a profile that has another group of the same name and delete them from the artist description. grow up and share the space.
This page is conflicting..! There's a 60s freakbeat band called The Flies and they wrote I'm Not Your Stepping Stone and i'm sure the profile pic is them. But evidently there is another band of the same name which is in the description at the top... Shouldn't they have different band profiles??
