Motivation[edit]

Prog Archives is a database devoted to progressive rock that contains 10,854 progressive rock bands and artists (as of November 26, 2019). As far as I can determine, it seems to be the largest site specifically devoted to cataloging progressive rock. A large number of the bands and artists cataloged on Prog Archives do not appear on Wikidata. I would like to rectify that by using Prog Archives as a source for adding these artists to Wikidata and having the identifier to link them to Prog Archives would be helpful.

I'm not sure what data is entered in some of the proposal values above. Please advise or correct at your leisure.
