Last.fm imports release information from several sources, but Bandcamp is yet not one of them. This is a quick guide on how to import release data to MusicBrainz (that Last.fm imports from) from Bandcamp.

This guide requires that you have Greasemonkey or a similar extension to your browser. It also requires that you have an account at MusicBrainz (it's free) and some basic computer skills.

1. Go to https://github.com/murdos/musicbrainz-userscripts/blob/master/bandcamp_importer.user.js

2. Click on Raw. You should get a message such as


3. Click on Install

You are now ready to start importing.

4. Go to the Bandcamp release you want to import. For instance http://nucleardeathterror.bandcamp.com/album/equinox
 
5. Click the button to import it.

6. Fill in the information. Check that the case and spelling is correct.

7. Done! The release should appear on Last.fm after the next import (it runs each Friday).
