So BIB Records and DVS Media are two different record labels... but they seem to be a bit intertwined. A handful of albums seemingly came out around the same time on each label, both operated seemingly out of the Boston area and they co-released at least one ska compilation. In the end, I don't know the true story behind them (and I think that I'll probably be finding out from the slightly older, or more "in-the-know" ska crowd as soon as I publish this) ...but I do know this, and this is the important part, they both put out some killer ska music!
