history

background info

  • I'll add more last.fm groups in the future + merge the results...
    • please suggest some groups which will fit into this analysis, thx
    • and yes... it's clear that different selection of groups at begin will generate slightly different artists, therefore have patience :-)
  • I'm using this last.fm tool for generating: group artist matcher
  • this is part of the series: group artist matcher
