The Dave Brockie Experience or DBX was formed of three of the then-current members of Heavy metal band Gwar. The band was composed of David "Oderus Urungus" Brockie (vocals/bass), Brad "Jizmak Da Gusha" Roberts (drums), and Mike "Balsac the Jaws of Death" Derks (Guitar). DBX was a pet project of Gwar and showed some of their earlier punk roots from the "Death Piggy" era. At their shows they played some original DBX songs as well as some tunes from Death Piggy, Gwar, and X-Cops. The band enjoyed a following mostly made up of Gwar fans. Dave Brockie hinted at the possibility of the band's breakup in the past due to the exhausting nature of lower-budget touring. In February 2008, several sources reported that the band would be touring as an opening act for the reunited Green Jellÿ. Dave Brockie stated, on his website, that this was not the case and there were no official discussions concerning the tour.

DBX played two reunion shows in August 2009. In a more recent interview with Dave Brockie he explained a new DBX album was "possible" but said his main priority then was Gwar.

Brockie died of a heroin overdose in March 2014.[1]
