Welcome to The Brobecks Wiki. A very long time ago the band themselves used this domain, so we found it fitting to host the wiki here as a sort of memorial to the project. This place is a massive work in progress worked on when I have the time, I have incredibly basic web dev knowledge so this place is gonna look like an old geocities while we prioritize getting all the information down before we make it look pretty.

I feel like I should say, I know how low spec this whole wiki thing is. I know I could do it better, in a more proper way or format. There’s a lot I don’t know about web design and I’m sure this site makes some people cringe as I barely scratch the surface of web 101 stuff. This isn’t an apology or anything, just an explanation. That’s just the kind of person I am. (Way more EP pages are looking spiffy now and EVERY SINGLE DEMO DISC PAGE is completeish. I’m likely gonna turn my attention to one of our other tabs to give me some variety, the media tab could be interesting.)

Whoops I haven’t been updating this for a minute, work continued though I promise. JuLives page got an awesome update when we got a full copy of the album from before tracks got cut, and it was way higher quality than we had originally, if you check out one thing let it be that. What’s more i’ve finally been giving some of the EP pages some love, with A Very Brobeck Christmas & both volumes of Remixing The Brobecks being finished with downloads up. The later album pages like Goodnight and Violent Things still need some love, or maybe a lot, but I’m trying to take a shotgun approach to this whole website thing. All this is to say: I’m working on it, even if i’m not updating the log.

April 30th 2024

Work continues, gave the homepage a makeover kinda. Still not ideal but I think it looks at least a little better. I’ve got a lot going on right now but I plan to at least have all the album pages in a good state by the end of the week, that way that featured pages area over there can get loaded up

April 23rd 2024

Everything to do with Happiest Nuclear Winter is “done” aside from giving it all another once over for grammar stuff and whatnot. Finally time to stop postponing doing the final 2 album pages. Goodnight begins.

April 16th 2024

Song pages for Happiest Nuclear Winter are almost done, I’m still a busy man that is easily distracted by a million other things. But work continues.

April 9th 2024

All individual song pages for Understanding The Brobecks are “Done” (Just need the old once over to clean them up), now onto Happiest Nuclear Winter before I get distracted by a million other cool ideas

April 7th 2024

I’ve finished all the individual song pages for The Brobecks first album The 4th Of JuLive, cleaned up the bios page a lot more so it works on mobile properly and generally fixed up some random odds and ins. What did you do today?

April 4th 2024

Work continues, Right now i’m writing up The Brobecks old recording log for Happiest Nuclear Winter to have it preserved on a page on here. I’d just link to an archive of the old site but that could always get wiped, the internet is forever until it isn’t. New mixes of Understanding The Brobecks just released (from Mikes half of the album) and maybe we’ll see new mixes for Dallons too? you never know.

March 17th 2024

I’m Back! Work was done after the last update was posted but not a ton. You know how it is living in the great american death machine. You would think being unemployed would give me tons of time to work on this (it doesn’t). I’m here to say work is resuming, and you may be delighted to find downloads for all The Brobecks albums are up both in mp3, and CD rips (except Violent Things cause you can still give Dallon money for that one). i’m still here i’m just spiraling a little.

January 23rd 2024

had a thought, some things in their discography don’t have official cover art, and while for demo discs and stuff like that we can use just scans of the disc or other more official things perhaps holding a design contest for some things on the wiki might be interesting. maybe, maybe not, who knows

January 21st 2024

The sites pages are looking better on desktop and mobile than they ever have before, joyous day. Still getting placeholder pages for everything setup then I will focus entirely on completing everything in the discography page, bios page and media page in that order. Time takes time, in the meantime sign up for our non existent mailing list and we can all pretend it’s 2003. To give you an idea of future plans all individual iterations of songs will have their own pages (even if theres really not a lot to say about them specifically). I’m also working on getting tabs/chords and all that stuff for songs. I’m not much of a musician myself though so right now they’re few and far between. Wanna contribute tab stuff for tracks? hit me up.

January 18th 2024

Sleds a huge massive dummy and in the process of trying to switch the whole site over to the new domain…kinda killed everything because he forgot to make a wordpress backup and assumed hostinger would copy over everything :(. it’s okay though, it won’t take me long to get back to where we were and I have more experience now. I should be done by the end of the night getting back to the state we were in

The Before Times

Back when this website was thebrobeckswiki.com and not brobecks.com Sledbed tried a bunch of layouts and tests to see how he wanted to get this information across. Sadly ultimately he had to sacrifice the super cool file folder layout the site had (that emulated the brobecks own old websites) in the interest of something that is a bit more compatible between browsers and most importantly is able to be used on mobile where the majority of people will access the site. So right now it’s gonna look like babies first geocities for awhile, Sledbed apologizes for this place not being beautiful. The good news is the Wiki is now hosted on the same domain The Brobecks themselves used to use! Brobecks.com is back baby!

Note: This website is an archive run by fans and is in no way official, no copyright infringement is intended. We are simply doing our best to keep this bands history as accessible as possible for fans old and new to discover more about this project.
