The entry День радио is a good example for a special case. How about artists that use different performance names for one album? Are those considered fictitious artists then or just performance names? (Not so important now of course as we don't have any special guidelines). Two similar examples: Mick's Tape (Mixed by Cassetteboy), filled with aliases by Cassetteboy. Or take Sleepingroom, Volume 1 by Schiller. I did not yet convert it to VariousArtists because I'm not sure about this one. The cover lists this as VA with different TrackArtists actually but the tracks are likely to be all done by the same person (I guess to promote his label). --Shepard

For a general discussion if and how these artists should be used, see edit #8058566. --MClemo

There's been some discussion on the Mailing List.
