This is potentially a really stupid question, but is there any way to extract the data from MA into excel (or something else)? There have been a few times that I was curious about band demographics like country, genre, and dates of formation and thought that being able to work with the data dynamically would be really cool. Not being technically inclined, I have no idea what the requirements are to build something that allows information to be extracted from the website.

Or is there any other platform that people have transferred the data to where they can manipulate it? I've seen some people use the data on MA to perform some interesting analytics.
