"The ________ Brothers"

I know the preferred form for musical groups is to have them all under a single listing where credited as such (e.g. The Beatles rather than McCartney, Lennon etc.) but how does that work with "The xxxx Brothers"?

Using the Wachowski Brothers as a precedent, I would assume they should have individual listings with an "" attribute, but there are also pages like this -

One older, related thread (and a ”ticket”

that is probably still open):

Hi tom_wake -

For non-musical groups we do not have a clear defined policy on listing these groups, however, our current preference has been to list the group members individually with the group name mentioned in the credit attribute (ie. "Penn Jillette (as Penn and Teller)" ).

With that being said, I have given a push on the older ticket that Eboy referenced from the thread above for visibility by our policy team who will review our policy shortly.

I hope this helps in the meantime!
