Magic Fields
query not responding to a 3 word page title string (2 posts)

    I am using the current sigle post title to pull in related posts.

    the posts are taged with the taxonomy of the artist's name. ---

    the fields are all magic fields.

    so - find posts in the category "release" - where the artists name (which happens to be the title of the post) matches the artist taxonomy.

    This is working great. When I did this things really clicked

    HOWEVER > now there is a band with 3 words... and their related albums are not appearing. you can see it HERE.

    so where as "rainbow arabia" works perfect

    "coyote clean up" is not working. when I change it to "coyote clean" it does.

    see 'artist' =>wp_title("",false)', below...

    <div class="artist-release-box">
    			<h2 class="artist-box-header">releases</h2>
    		<?php query_posts( array(
    			'category_name' => 'releases',
    			'artist' => wp_title("",false),
    			'showposts' => 0,
    			) )?>
    		<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    		<div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    			<div class="grid-artist-release">
    				<div class="hover-img">
    				<a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">
    				<img alt="release image" src="<?php echo get ('release_info_release_image') ?>"></a>
    				<h3><?php echo get ('release_info_artist') ?>:</h3>
    				<h4><em><?php echo get ('release_info_release_title') ?></em></h4>
    			</div> <!--end grid-artist-release-->
    		</div> <!--end post_class thing -->
    		<?php endwhile; ?>
    		<?php else : ?>
    			<p>there are currently no releases posted for this artist.</p>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    		<?php wp_reset_query(); ?>
    	</div> <!-- artist-release-box -->

    Any help on this would be great.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is even a magic fields issue or if I'm pushing the wordpress in a hacky direction.

    maybe it's not the title and it's the "artist" taxonomy that doesn't like the 3rd word ?
    I mean... a string is a string isn't it ?
