d.b.s was a clear example of youthful ambition. Hailing from North Vancouver, British Columbia, the band formed in their early teens and by 11th grade (1994/1995) had built up a strong following in the Vancouver punk scene as affiliates with the infamous LVPR (Lynn Valley Punk Rockers). They went on to achieve national attention in Canada, had a significant following in the US as well, and even toured with bands like D.O.A and RANCID.
With a wavering lineup the d.b.s. sound evolved over their 10 year run, from energetic poppy-hardcore to a more 90's emo sound. They finally disbanded in 2001 and members went on to form other bands, such as Operation Makeout, and The Red Light Sting. Lead singer Jesse Gander has become a well respected record producer in Vancouver and has had a hand in recording countless Vancouver bands.
