I've found that the AudioScrobbler struggles to correctly identify artists if the name of the band ends in a number. This happens both for grabbing artwork of the artist and reporting playing of tracks to For example, "Alabama 3" gets reported as "Alabama" and "Spacemen 3" as "Spacemen". In each case, the truncated name is the name of a different band.

Any ideas?
