We chose the name of our old huge house, cause we couldnt think of anything better! It's difficult to describe our sound then, as it kept changing, but we were listening to a lot of classic rock, Zep, TRex, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Stones, Ian Hunter, Floyd and some of the melodic HC crossovers like Husker Du and Neurotic Arseholes, and alt-indie bands like the Cult and RHCP's. We played punk shows with SNFU, D.O.A., Doughboys, Tupelo Chain Sex, No Means No...many more. I wrote "Baby Doll" during this line-up which would be released several line-ups later, to hit #3 on Much Music rotation in 1992, and become a minor wedding favorite for popmetal fans in Manitoba(I hope you caught the sarcasm). "L.A." was also written during this line-up, and both songs were about a punk I wont/will embarrass.

Other lyrics reflected the punk scene and our own part in it (Career Boy, Come Along). So is Big House a punk band? Probably more like a burgeoning glam band from the alt-indie scene like Green River. Through a few line-ups we evolved til' we bit the bait for a major label contract in 90' when an excited A & R guy heard "Dollar in my Pocket" and thought he could market a Canadian Guns N' Roses. But that's another story for a different site. 3) Big House is an American country music band based in Bakersfield, California. Grounded in the Bakersfield Sound, originally, the band consisted of Monty Byrom (lead vocals, guitar), David Neuhauser (guitar, keyboard), Chuck Seaton (guitar), Tanner Byrom (drums), Sonny California (harmonica), and Ron Mitchell (bass guitar). 4) Big House was one of the bands featured on 1988's 'A BOSTON COMPACT DISC', the first local CD compilation in the world.

The band WHITE FIRE was a Berklee based studio side project that also had a track on that album. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
