Unfortunately, the database doesn't tell me whether an artist is a person or
a group. I could get this data by hitting the brainz api but we don't yet
have a local copy of the brainz api to hit and I'm on a promise to robert
not to kill his server. So in the meantime it's the best I can do with
available data...
