A.k.a artists

How to add a recording in which the artist is recorded as Torancy田中 a​.​k​.​a ぎるてぃ ?

Most of all, abbreviation a.k.a separates the artist as, for example, & and feat. or is it considered as a separate artist?

I guess your question is about that Who! release.


Usually a.k.a means also known as and the theme of this album is fake names.

If you don’t find any of these artists in MB, I would suggest to create like that for the moment (AAA a.k.a BBB).

They can be fixed in the future if needed.
Because I don’t know which of AAA and BBB is the pseudonym and which is the real artist name.

For example we could later fix this fictitious example Think White Duke a.k.a DB by merging with David Bowie once we identify DB.

Then we would end up with intended following resulting fix:

Think White Duke a.k.a DB

Thanks! I’ll try to follow your example.
