The Long Beach Dub Allstars was a dub reggae/ska/rock band formed in 1997 and disbanded in 2002.
Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh met in childhood (in 1979) and later started their first garage punk band, consisting of drums, bass and vocals. They later formed Sublime with Brad Nowell. The Long Beach Dub Allstars (LBDAS for short) were founded after Brad died in 1996 of a heroin overdose (frequent contributors to Sublime including Michael "Miguel" Happoldt, Todd Foreman, and "Field" Marshall Goodman are also members of the band).
The band was originally a 10-piece and they recorded their debut recording called Right Back, which shortly after completion saw the departure of three members. Right Back was issued in 1999 and their second album, Wonders of the World was recorded and released in 2001.
In 2002 rumors that the band had broken up began to surface. Apparently the band had taken a hard-drug-free vow and some of the band's members had broken this vow, which caused Bud Gaugh to quit.
