d.b.s. Forget Everything You Know

This is the final release from these Vancouver upstarts. What began as something of a novelty act back in '92 (four teenagers wearing the same striped T-shirts and playing obnoxious punk rock) grew into an outstanding emotionally layered band over the course of a few years. With a sound that can be likened to the Promise Ring, these final five songs exemplify the introspective inspiration they wove into their music so well. It's a shame to see them go. (Ache)
