That link doesn't contain any solution to the bands with the same name problem. People have been complaining for years about this problem and nothing is ever done about it.  Really annoying like many other things about Spotify. Little competition so why bother.

The error reporting system is self linked and not producing a page to report problems.  :) 

That i can report... :)

Yep, definitely not a solution. The links just loop to each other endlessly...

So, will it be fixed? 3 years and still no correct solution, is it such a big deal? I've got a lot of mess in my subscriptions because of this, the latest I saw was Element - at least 5 bands on the same page, and I wanna be subscribe and receive updates only about one of them.

Ok, I see, it won't be solved, at least not in the nearest future, but I discovered a new related problem. Not long ago I received a new notification about the band called Nails and It turned out that it's some country crap under the same name, not grindcore act from my subscriptions. It may seem common BUT this country band has separate account and I'm NOT subscribed to it. Clean up this mess, Spotify!

Yep, that happens when the archivists cannot distinguish between identical names, technical wise. We had this problem with an asset management system once too. Bad thing, if the usability of such an archive tool influences the user experience of paying customers!

This can be a pain - It would be great if there was some way of keeping them separate.

Pearl - the Pleasure album and the Love Slave single are by one person (Pearl, AKA Pearl Liaison), but the other two singles (Hello and I Will) and the album Reflection are by other people with the same name.
