Once upon a time, Bandcamp had a good REST API. This API allowed musician/developers to link to their music through scripts.

Then they decided to get rid of it.

I have an Open Graph Protocol parser on my site. And it works with every site, except... yes, Bandcamp.

The response I received could be summarised as: "tough". But all I'm doing is trying to link to my own music, or share music I like.

So: until I figure out a workaround, there may be missing Bandcamp links on my site. I'd apologise, but it's really not my fault.
