Vancouver B.C. has seen it's share of great bands come and go. SNFU, By a Thread, Sparkmarker and countless others. All are great bands But there is one I feel that deserves a little more recognition for what they have accomplished.

This band began at the young age of 14 in 1992. All the music they have created has seemed to have culminated over the years into their last three releases.

Some boys got it, Most men don't is one amazing listen..start to finish. The musical maturity shines well...The band is still quite young...but the phenominal musicanship makes the band sound like they have been around for decades. With a mix of sounds quite unexpected by this band i.e. Trumpet, more acoustics and just overall a more mellow tempo to songs like: "And then I awoke", "Starboard", "Apology" and others. But not to go without the traditional d.b.s. speed as well. You cant seem to deny playing one song over and over again for each one has it's great guitar and vocal hooks and healthy dose of backup screaming.

Great band awesome record...d.b.s. sadly had broke up in 2001 but not before one more mind blowing e.p. titled "forget everything you know" check out both releases. Check out one of the most underrated and musically diverse bands to come along in the last decade.

No band will have the heart dbs did, ever again. I'll never forget hearing the first line to this cd after not hearing them in a long time, and falling completely in love with these guys. Jesse has a hard voice, almost shitty sometimes, but it perfectly suits the emotion that this band had both live and recorded. It wasn't until a year later that I heard "if life were a result" and that was it, they became my favorite band of all time. R.I.P. dbs, i'll never forget you.

This is a great album, although I prefer,
"If life were a result we'd all be dead."
I give this band a 10 rating. I was in a band called Odd Man Out and played with these guys. They put on one of the most amazing live shows that I've ever seen. I saw them again a year later. Jesse ( The singer) was all over the place and at the end of a song he was on the ground bleeding. It was incredible. Peace, to one of the best bands that ever existed. Check Out:

this band was the soundtrack to my adolescense, all the way from tales from the crib up till forget everything you know. I don't think these guys put out a bad album.

If you missed the two final dbs shows you missed out big, they were the 2 most intense shows of my life, nothing will compare to it ever again.

whats going on with all these half assed reviews being posted? this is ridiculous.

I still have to get the last EP, but they definately went all out for there final bows. The "if life was a result..." EP is golden, this LP is great, at least they went out in a blaze of quality.

The epidemic, one of the post-dbs bands, while not being classically what would be pigeonholed as punk, is really good.
