Can we please have 3 names of a single band merged into one? (Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats)

So, on Last.fm there are three different names for a single band:

- Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats (https://www.last.fm/music/Uncle+Acid+&+the+Deadbeats)
- Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (https://www.last.fm/music/Uncle+Acid+and+the+Deadbeats)
- Uncle Acid (https://www.last.fm/music/Uncle%20Acid)

The legit name is the first one, with a '&'. I have voted on this years ago, nothing has changed since. Can something be done about that please?

Haha, I remember this topic being one of my favourites in this "merging" case. #metoo button marked, I'd also like to see them merged somehow. Though I'm afraid all this merging stuff will be when new library will be deployed, so around December.

I couldn't find a topic I wrote for this band. As one user already said, the million-and-one different spellings for this band are proving a right nightmare on last.fm.
