As far as I know Madsonic gets their Artist Biographies from LastFM. So this could just do, what it says. Cleans up incomplete LastFM Artist Biographies on your Server. But I'm not sure.

True, MadSonic keeps the Last.FM Info in its Database for speeding up some things.

But it'll fetch it fresh from Last.FM if it is missing (in case of a deltetion or the artist was never fetched before)

So cleaning is safe, because needed data will be "re-newed" after a clean.
