Hello,

I've spent some time w/ Discogs stuff - it needs some work.  The links
to DBpedia are broken b/c of some capitalization errors, and the
artist URIs and foaf:names are a bit borked b/c the underlying data
has some unicode errors (two bytes v one byte unicode not handled
properly)

you might see if you can just use these.  otherwise the ruby code is
around somewhere on the talis platform site.  no time to find it now -
i've got a new born to look after :-)
