Finally got around to testing this again.
I got errors for "Kjell Alinge & Janne Forsell", see the attached log file.

Another thing I noticed is that groups like "Beatles,The" and "Beach Boys,The" were not found.

    Updated with v2b.
    This should sort out the artist prefixes (eg=> Beatles, The => The Beatles)

    But... i have 1 artist that always seems to cause problems :)
    Frédéric Chopin
    OK this was because he has no discography page. New version in first post which will now check that pages exist before loading them.
    Can you try and break this again please?
    Unable to breakt it at the moment. Working as expected now. (y)

    Version 2 removed as I think I have broken it...
    Can confirm. Although the change does fix scraping for this Artist, i'm now seeing some side effects, for example:
    - All long text fields that were scrolling, are now flickering/blinking

    Is this something that needs to be included in 1.5.0?
    Well it is totally broken at the moment so including it can not makes things much worse ;)
    I will one day get around to making this like the IMDB scrapers but I never seem to find the time for that.

    I tested the new version, and it is an improvement. It found info for 'Beach Boys, The'. But it didn't find the album 'Pet Sounds' by the same group. I'm attaching debug logs.
