says "Annie Anxiety born Ann Robie Bandes O’Connor, grew up in Yonkers, a New York City suburb two miles north and a world away from Manhattan", I've added her to the db as "Ann O'Connor".

I'm not sure though. Other sources claim her last name is either Bandes or Bandez. I checked with copyright.gov, but I couldn't find her there. Who knows a good source?

Also this compilation features a track by Annie Anxiety And The Asexuals:

the members are credited under their aliases, but I can't find out who's who. I could use some help, since this could be a nice bridge between US punk and the European electronic scene.

Just because Robie can be a surname doesn't mean it is in this case. It's not uncommon for typical surnames to be used as middle names to preserve some family heritage or for whatever reason. Surely it was obvious she started with Bandes and maybe added the O'Connor later based on your findings!

You're right, but I'm leaving it for now until new evidence pops up.

Oh dear... I should've mentioned I wrote out her name differently to how it actually appears in ASCAP. It's given as:

BANDES-O'CONNOR ANNIE ROBIE

Robie is one hundred percent her middle name based on that ordering. Not credited with it so no go in B2B.
