Just a thought. We have plenty of bands on here where the artist has changed their name, but all of the artist's releases are on the same page (as it's the same band with a different monicker). I added one today where the band was known as Morbid Theory and then decided to change to Osyron (same band) -
Now, the site's search function works fine usually with these bands, allowing the user to search under the old name. I just wonder whether it would be sensible having the alternative band name listed under the alphabetical listings too. So in my example, Morbid Theory would be listed under the Ms, and Osyron under O (both linking through to the same page). If I've picked up a demo by Morbid Angel and search under M, I'd possibly assume that the band wasn't on the site. I wouldn't necessarily think to also check using the search function.
Again, not a show-stopper by any means but just a thought!
